Judge Helena Heath-Roland today released two web advertisements as part of her innovative multi-media campaign for re-election as Albany City Court Judge. Judge Heath-Roland and her campaign team have creatively incorporated social media into traditional election campaign procedures as a means of keeping the public and volunteers updated on the campaign's efforts and progress.

The ads demonstrate Judge Heath-Roland's commitment to faithfully serve with high ethical standards, and her dedication to the well-being of the Albany community. The first web ad highlights Judge Heath-Roland's community work; the second web ad highlights her more than twenty years of judicial and legal experience.

"I strongly believe the best campaign is one brought straight to the people so they can make an informed decision on Election Day. These web ads make it convenient for Albany citizens to view, share, and discuss my contributions and qualifications as a part of our important democratic process," said Judge Heath-Roland.

During her tenure as City Court Judge, Heath-Roland has tirelessly volunteered and advocated for youth. She has coordinated programs for the past fourteen years with Albany Law School to expose female and minority law students to a variety of career paths and share keys to becoming a successful lawyer.

As a past co-chair of the Lawyer in the Classroom Committee for the Capital District Women's Bar Association (CDWBA), she spearheaded a program where members of the CDWBA made law-related presentations to students in Capital District area middle and high schools. Judge Heath-Roland also collaborated with the Albany Police Department to establish the Albany Youth Police Council, which was created in 2006 to facilitate communication and foster mutual respect between inner city teenagers and police officers in the City of Albany.

Prior to Judge Heath-Roland's work on the bench, she served as a Court Attorney at the New York Court of Appeals, the highest level court in the State, an Assistant Attorney General in the litigation bureau of the NYS Department of Law, an Assistant Counsel to the NYS Department of Economic Development, and a Senior Counsel for the NYS Assembly Speaker.
