Thomas E. Moran is Livingingston County district attorney.
Livingston County District Attorney Thomas E. Moran today announced his candidacy for state Supreme Court judge.
Moran, a Brighton police officer in the late 1970s and early 1980s, is a former attorney in private practice and elected town justice in Livonia, and he has been serving as district attorney since 1993.
“In the last 18 years, I’ve tried everything from speeding tickets to murders,” Moran said today in his campaign announcement.
But his overall experiences in life and the legal system have prepared him to decide on the problems facing the people he would see in court if elected, Moran said.
“I bring to the bench experience I think people want and need for someone to make decisions on people’s lives,” said Moran, who lives in Geneseo with his wife and two children.
Monroe County Republican Chairman Bill Reilich, R-Greece, said Moran’s well-rounded background is impeccable.
“Tom has a wealth of experience he brings to this new challenge,” Reilich said.
If elected, Moran would serve a 14-year term in the eight-county Seventh Judicial District, which includes the counties of Monroe, Ontario, and Wayne.
