MILLCREEK, Pa. - One woman made her District Judge announcement in Millcreek Tuesday night. Laurie Mikielski hosted a party at the Public House announcing her candidacy in the election.
Mikielski will be running for the District Magistrate of West Millcreek.
The open seat was previously served by honorable Paul Manzi. 
She currently works in the Erie County Public Defenders Office.
She says, 

"My priorities would be to keep Millcreek safe, as it currently is, and I want to continue to have citizens of Millcreek treated fairly and justly."

Mikielski is currently the only running candidate in West Millcreek with both prosecution and defense experience. She hopes with this and her experience working within several law offices, she is able to demonstrate herself as the best candidate.
