Mary Tarantelli announced she’ll be running for the bench in the fall. Her family and friends surrounded her this afternoon for the announcement at the Chemung County Court House.
Tarantelli has been involved with the Family Court System for 27 years and a Family Court Attorney in Chemung County for 14 years. She has previous legal experience specializing in Family and Children’s Rights that she believes will benefit her as a candidate and hopefully on the bench.
“When I decided to go to law school, I concentrated on an area of family law knowing that I was coming back to this community. So with each step of my career, I added to my knowledge level. Then it became a matter of experience and I’m probably one of the handful of attorneys that actually practice in family court on a daily basis,” said Tarantelli this afternoon.
Tarantelli said everything she has done so far in her career, has helped her prepare for this campaign. She hopes to bring the message of experience, qualifications, and ability to the community and position.
