Kimberlee Balok Middaugh resigned as Elmira City Manager in 2016 to enter the private sector. Thursday night she announced her candidacy for Elmira Town Justice.
Middaugh served as city manager for 2 years, and left to enter the private sector. She’s certainly no stranger to the legal system. She’s practiced law for nearly 20 years, and she currently works in private practice for Elmira law firm Sayles & Evans.
“My legal career has always been about serving the people of the community where I grew up,” Middaugh said. “I believe I have the experience, temperament and passion to serve as the Town of Elmira’s next justice.”
Middaugh earned her Juris Doctor from Albany Law School after graduating from the State University of New York at Geneseo and Corning Community College. She’s a 1990 graduate of Southside High School. Her husband, Michael Middaugh, is a school counselor in the Elmira City School District, where their three boys are students.
2019 is an election year for town offices. The primary will be held on Tuesday, June 25 and the general election will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 5.
