Judge Lenore LeFevre has served the Town of Cortlandville for the last four years as Town Justice and she will be on the ballot again this November seeking a second term. Judge LeFevre takes her job seriously and works hard at it every day. During the early days of the pandemic and for many months after, she was one of only a select few town court justices doing virtual arraignments at any hour of the day or night. Judge LeFevre put forth tremendous effort in meeting and overcoming all challenges during this difficult time when policies and procedures were changing everyday. 

Judge LeFevre’s legal experience and life experience have contributed to her reputation as an objective, fair and compassionate judge. As an officer in the Navy Reserves, she has brought her administrative and leadership skills to the position. While being one of the busiest town courts in the state, Cortlandville Town Court is also one of the most efficient, handling thousands of cases annually. Judge LeFevre is one of only two judges qualified as back-up magistrates for the adolescent and youth court arraignments that were created as a result of the “Raise the Age” legislation.

Judge LeFevre also serves our community through volunteer commitments. She is a Board Member of the JM Murray Center, a not-for-profit committed to providing services for people with disabilities and their families that enhance the quality of their lives. She serves as the Treasurer of the Cortland County Magistrate’s Association and is a member of the Cortland County Bar Association, as well as Zonta of Cortland County.

What she loves most about her job is the opportunity to make a difference. “I’ve seen people at their best and their worst. I sincerely hope that my decisions as town justice have had a positive impact on the individuals before me and the community at large.” 

Judge LeFevre lives with her supportive and caring husband and her loving mother-in-law in Cortlandville, where she has raised two wonderful sons.

Remember to vote Tuesday, November 2nd. Early voting begins October 23rd.
