Judge-to-be Michael Getman.

COOPERSTOWN – Almost 30 years of legal practice in Otsego County culminated this afternoon for Michael F. Getman, 62, who was chosen on the third ballot to succeed fellow Oneontan Brian D. Burns as Otsego county judge.

The son of a city judge, Getman, who has served as chief assistant district attorney and city prosecutor, will now appear unopposed on the Republican line for county judge in the Nov. 3 election, and is due to be sworn for a 10-year term on Jan. 1.

Today’s selection was made by the Republican County Committee meeting in The Otesaga’s ballroom.
