Koweek Wins Stunning Victory for Columbia County Judge

County Judge-Elect Richard Koweek
Hudson City Judge Richard Koweek has won a stunning victory for Columbia County Judge on Tuesday. His opponent in the race was longtime District Attorney Beth Cozzolino who ran for County Judge rather than face a primary for District Attorney by former Judge Paul Czajka.

Judge Koweek won 11 of the 18 towns in the county and the City of Hudson. He did exceptionally well in Stockport, Hillsdale, Germantown and Austerlitz, Greenport and Hudson. His appeal was also quite strong in the traditionally Republican towns of Claverack and Livingston.

He was the only candidate in the race for Columbia County Judge rated as "Qualified" by the Independent Judicial Election Qualification Commission for the Third District which Columbia County is a part of.

Congratulations to Judge Koweek for an excellent job well done!
