Press release:

The association representing Genesee County’s Corrections officers and other Sheriff’s employees has enthusiastically endorsed Durin Rogers (inset photo right) to become Batavia’s next full-time city court judge.

Genesee County Sheriff’s Employees Association (GCSEA) President Kevin Wolff cited several reasons supporting the decision to endorse Rogers.

“Judge Rogers’ enthusiasm and dedication to the bench, his family and our community is evident,” Wolff said. “[He] has extensive experience on the bench handling thousands of cases as a Batavia City Court Judge and has a proven track record. Judge Rogers’ multifaceted experience and steadfast integrity make him the obvious choice to be the next full-time city court judge.

"...Our endorsement also acknowledges Judge Rogers’ …ready availability to law enforcement day and night, seven days a week for after-hours arraignments and warrants…Judge Rogers is a shining example of what all citizens of Batavia should strive to be.”

The endorsements Rogers’ has received have caught the attention of many local Republicans according to local attorney and City Republican Chair David Saleh.

“I’ve been contacted by many Republicans from Batavia and around the county who have been very impressed by the support Judge Rogers’ is receiving,” Saleh said.

“He’s been endorsed by an impressive group of people including our county sheriff, our commissioner of social services, the head of Genesee Justice, the Genesee County attorney, the president of our city council and now the association representing so many of the employees of our Sheriff’s (Office).

"This all shows that Judge Rogers has proven himself as a fantastic lawyer and judge and he is the only candidate who can complete the full 10-year term. He has definitely earned the support of Batavia’s Republicans as our endorsed Republican candidate for the upcoming June 25thprimary.”

Press release:

Stressing his superior skills and experience, current Genesee Justice coordinator Catherine Uhly and her predecessor Ed Minardo have added their names to the impressive and growing list of officials who have endorsed part-time City Court Judge Durin Rogers in his effort to become Batavia’s next full-time Judge.

Genesee Justice is the arm of Genesee County government that works with our local courts, police and others, providing programs serving victims as well as defendants in criminal cases throughout the County.  

“Judge Rogers is a fair, balanced and unbiased judge with high ethical standards” Uhly said. "He has a proven track record of holding offenders accountable through the use of alternative-to-incarceration programs as Community Service or our Release Under Supervision (RUS) pretrial release program…while also displaying sound judgment if a defendant’s risk assessments are too high to warrant release from custody.” 

Commenting on Judge Rogers’ work helping to establish the Genesee County Youth Court, Minardo said, “Judge Rogers has been a strong advocate for youth participation in the legal system.” Minardo noted Rogers’ focus on defendant accountability when he said “Judge Rogers sought accountability by including expectations that individuals address their personal shortcomings to avert continued harmful behavior.”

As to Rogers’ unique experience working with families in distress, Minardo stated “Judge Rogers’ 20-plus years as a juvenile prosecutor…has provided him with a unique perspective on the impact that child abuse, sexual assault and domestic violence has on individuals and families…He will be an excellent judicial steward if elected."
