CHAMBERSBURG, PA. - A Hamilton Township, Pa., man has announced his candidacy for the vacant magisterial district judge seat previously held by Pennsylvania state Senator-elect Rich Alloway.
David (Dave) L. Plum, 43, said he is certified for the position, having enrolled in the Magisterial District Judge Certification Course in June and receiving his certification through the Pennsylvania Minor Judiciary Education Board.
Plum is running for the District 39-3-03 seat vacated in February by Alloway, who resigned the seat in order to run for the Senate. Candidates for judicial seats in Pennsylvania may file to run in both the Republican and Democratic primaries in May.
The district includes Hamilton, Letterkenny, Lurgan and Metal townships.
"I am very fortunate to have a wide range of business and life experiences and am thankful for all of them," Plum stated in his announcement. "These experiences combined with my training provide me with a perspective and important attributes necessary to effectively serve our community."
