Candidate Free Air Time 2008: Joanne Winslow

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
Hello, my name is Joanne Winslow and I'm a Democrat running for Supreme Court judge. For the past 20 years, I've been a Monroe County prosecutor. I currently head the major felony crimes unit. I'm in this race because I'm deeply committed to making a difference in the lives of people from all over our community. I've spent my career as an advocate for the victims of serious crimes, but I'm also deeply committed to every person's right to fair and equitable treatment before the court. I believe in justice that is firm, but fair - but also justice that is tempered with compassion when the situation calls for it. As a Supreme Court judge, my duty will be to uphold these values as the highest standard. I chose to become a prosecutor because I knew I wanted to spend my life in a courtroom. And because it was the surest way to help people and to be dedicated to fairness. I've dedicated myself to fairness in all of my cases. I've done this in cases of violent crime such as the case involving the Irondequoit family that was kidnapped at gunpoint and driven around in the trunk of a car on Easter Sunday two years ago. Or the case of the Penfield attorney who paid to have his wife killed by her half-brother. Or the Joseph Avenue Fish Market robbery and shooting. Or the theft in Greece of a van with two young children in it. I've also dedicated myself to fairness in cases of non-violent crime, such as cases involving financial theft. In non-violent cases I've sought to learn the underlying reason for the criminal behavior and worked to find solutions to address the root cause of the behavior. I was involved in the inception of two programs which address fairness and solutions in non-violent cases. the Rochester Drug Treatment Court and the first ever elder abuse prevention program at the District Attorney's office. Many Monroe County prosecutors have gone on to become respected judges, including Supreme Court Justices Siragusa, Valentino and Lindley. I seek to follow that tradition. I ask you to remember to vote on November 4th and know that I would be honored to have your vote.
