November Message from The President
A Year in Review
I find it hard to believe that my one-year tenure as president of the Bar is coming to an end.
It has certainly been an active year. Courts have returned to “normal” after the COVID pandemic. The concept of virtual was created by the Office of Court Administration and the mechanism for such appearances perfected. Those appearances have evolved to a hybrid approach, some being virtual, some being in person. Hopefully that trend will continue in the future.
Over the past year, Judge Ramseier and Judge McClusky from Jefferson County and Judge Rose from Herkimer County have been assigned to Oneida County to help with our backlog. As a result, cases are now moving expeditiously. Things are, once again, moving smoothly.
Kathy Loconti has just been appointed to replace Linda Hughes as our new matrimonial referee. Good luck to Kathy. She will be a great addition to the team handling matrimonial cases in Oneida County and we all look forward to working with her.
I will now pass the baton on to our new incoming president, Paula Eannace. Paula has great new ideas and enormous enthusiasm and I wish her the best of luck!
Very truly yours,
Keith A. Eisenhut, Esq., President, Oneida County Bar Association
