The Fulton Republican City Committee endorsed Judge David Hawthorne for Fulton City Court Judge at their February meeting according to Jim Myers, committee chairman.
Hawthorne was appointed City Court Judge by Mayor Ron Woodward effective as of January 1.
The position was made vacant when former City Judge Spencer Ludington was elected to Oswego County Surrogate Judge.
Hawthorne will be running for a full term in November.
“He has 25 years experience as a lawyer and did an excellent job as City Attorney” said Myers. “I know he’ll do an equally good job as City Court Judge.”
