The Saratoga County Republican Committee officially endorsed attorney Erika Riebel for Saratoga County Family Court Judge at their full committee meeting Thursday, May 27, according to information from the campaign.
Riebel had been endorsed by the Saratoga County Conservative Party, previously. If elected, she would be the first female county judge in Saratoga County.
Riebel, a Clifton Park resident, has practiced Family and Matrimonial Law for 15 years and is the daughter of Dave Riebel, Esq., former Saratoga County Assistant District Attorney, now practicing in private since 1967. Riebel joined him in the family practice in 1995. According to campaign information, one of Riebel's strengths is that she has experience and familiarity with Saratoga County Family Court and generally appears before the court in 500 to 800 cases a year. She has also held the honorary title of Law Guardian Liaison to the Appellate Division from the Saratoga County Courts for 10 years.
