Statement by Tioga County District Attorney-Elect Kirk Martin

EDITOR: I'm honored and humbled to have earned the trust of Tioga County's voters in today's election for District Attorney.

We ran a positive campaign on the issues and it's gratifying to know that Tioga County appreciates clean and honorable campaigns.

Now the hard work begins.

As your next District Attorney, I will devote myself to making Tioga County the safest place it can be to live, work, raise a family and retire. I will fulfill my pledges to protect our seniors from elder fraud, fight drugs like meth and bath salts, and stand up for our Constitutional Rights.

Thank you to those who participated in today's election - no matter who they voted for. It's an integral part of our democracy.

Kirk Martin
