ITHACA – Local attorney Ed Kopko accepted the Independence Party nomination this week for Tompkins County District Attorney, meaning voters will have two choices for candidates in the fall.
“I am exceedingly grateful to the Independence Party for giving the voters a choice in the election this November between me and the Democratic candidate who has no prosecutorial experience whatsoever,” Kopko said in a statement.
Kopko is a longtime Tompkins County attorney with more than 30 years of law experience.
