May 26, 1998|By MARLO BARNHART

Republican John M. Shriver is seeking re-election to a judgeship on the Washington County Orphans' Court.

Shriver, 47, was elected four years ago after four unsuccessful tries. The post carries a term of four years and pays $6,000 annually.

During his first term, Shriver became a member of the Maryland Association of Judges of the Orphans' Courts.

The local Orphans' Court judges meet two days a week to probate wills, settle disputes over estates and appoint administrators and guardians.

Shriver served on the Washington County Republican Central Committee from 1982 until 1994 and was vice-chairman from 1986 to 1994. He was a member of former Maryland Gov. Marvin Mandel's youth advisory council and served on Maryland's Young Republican State Board for two terms.


He is a driver education instructor for Widmyer Driving School.

Shriver and his wife, Joyce, have two children, Michael and Jacqueline. They live in Williamsport.

Shriver is a member of the Washington Square United Methodist Church in Hagerstown.

He has been a parent volunteer at Hickory Elementary School for the past 10 years.

In the Sept. 15 primary, the top three Democratic vote-getters will run against their three GOP counterparts for the three seats on the court.
