Moses announces he will run for St. Lawrence County Court Judge
CANTON – Attorney Andrew Moses will run for St. Lawrence County Family Court Judge.
He made the announcement Monday on the steps of the St. Lawrence County Court House.“I will be seeking the Republican and conservative party endorsements. My 29 plus years of experience as an attorney in New York, and my record of dedication to the families of our county has put me in a strong position to effectively manage this complex and challenging court,” he said in a prepared statement.
Moses says he is a family man.
“I have been married to my wife, Renee for 27 years and we have 2 children. My daughter Rachel graduated from Canton Central School in 2015 and from the University of Hartford in 2019. My son Sam graduates from Canton Central this year and he will be attending RIT in the fall. I am an active member of our community. My wife and I have been co-chairs of the Canton Music Friends for the past 7 years. I am a member of the Canton Central School Board where I have supported our students' and teachers and where I have fought for fiscal responsibility,” he said.
According to Moses, his experience as a family court attorney for the past 29 plus years makes me uniquely qualified to hold the position of St. Lawrence County Family Court Judge.
“ I was an attorney for the St. Lawrence County Department of Social Services for more than 6 years; I was a Deputy County Attorney for St. Lawrence County for more than 13 years; and I ran a private law firm for almost 11 years. I have been a defense attorney, attorney for the child, I have prosecuted juvenile delinquent cases, child support, paternity and abuse and neglect cases,” he said.
Family court is responsible for ensuring the safety of our children, protecting the victims of domestic violence and settling the many other legal disputes that can occur in families, Moses says.
“In most cases that come before the family court, a child’s well being is at stake and when it comes to protecting children, I believe there are no excuses for delay. I have dedicated most of my legal career to family court because I believe protecting children, protecting victims of family violence and helping families that are experiencing disruptions is the most important work an attorney can do,” he said.
Moses promises to put his experience and knowledge as a practicing attorney to work to ensure family court is streamlined, efficient and effective.
“I want family court to be a place where the rights of all of St. Lawrence County residents are protected; where all of St. Lawrence county residents are given a voice; and where they are treated with respect and dignity.”
