John M. Shriver is seeking re-election to a fourth term as a Washington County Orphans Court judge.
"I enjoy helping people and would like to serve another term," Shriver, 56, a Republican, said in a written release.
Shriver has been a driver's education instructor for Widmyer Driving School in Hagerstown for 22 years. He and his wife, Joyce, have two children, Michael and Jacqueline, and live in Williamsport.
"I just like the job. It doesn't take me away from my full-time job," he said.
A member of the Maryland Association of the Orphans Court, Shriver has served on the county Orphans Court since 1994, he wrote. He was appointed by former Gov. Parris N. Glendening as chief judge of the county Orphans Court in 2002 because he received the highest number of votes in that election, he said.
Shriver is a member of Washington Square United Methodist Church in Hagerstown, the Railroad Old Timers Club and the Dixon-Troxell American Legion Post 211 Sons of the American Legion, where he serves as chaplain. Shriver was a member of the Young Republicans State Board for two terms, one from 1971 to 1973 and another from 1981 to 1983.
