Samuel "Sam" Tubaugh

July 27, 2006

If elected as a Washington County Orphans Court judge, retired air traffic controller Samuel "Sam" Tubaugh said he looks forward to helping people in need.

"It'll give me the opportunity to do what God put me here for: To help people in times of stress, in times of need and to make sure they get their fair shake," Tubaugh said.

Tubaugh, 77, was selected in 2002 by the Washington County Democratic Central Committee to run for Orphans Court judge, but lost in the election.

A native of Indiana, Tubaugh spent 22 years in the U.S. Air Force and then 26 years as an FAA air traffic controller. He spent the last 20 years of his career as a controller at Hagerstown Regional Airport.

"God went to work with me everyday and helped me make the right decisions so now it's time for me to give back to the community," he said. When Tubaugh came to Washington County in 1974, he said, "I didn't fall in love with the area as much as I did the people. We have some of the most fantastic people I have ever met."

He is a member of American Legion Post 42, Elks Lodge 378, the Long Meadow Lions Club, Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1936 and Emmanuel United Methodist Church.

He has three children and nine grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren. His wife, Ruth, died in 1996.
