PLEASANT HALL, Pa. -- Chambersburg-area voters will find few local contested races on their ballots Tuesday beyond a magisterial district judgeship in District 39-3-03.
David Plum and Carol Anne Redding are both knocking on doors in the final days of their campaigns. Voters will choose one of them to serve in the currently vacant magisterial district judge position for a six-year term.
The district encompasses Hamilton, Letterkenny, Lurgan, Fannett and Metal townships.
Plum, 44, took the Magisterial District Judge Certification Course before announcing his candidacy in late 2008.
"I understand and respect the values of our county," Plum said, saying he would treat everyone fairly.
Redding, 49, said she has 19 years of legal experience, with 16 of those years as an attorney in Franklin County. She said her experiences include municipal, criminal and civil cases.
"Just from that perspective, I feel I'm well qualified," she said.
Both said the Pleasant Hall office, which was used by Richard Alloway before he became a state senator, seems to operate efficiently. They also said they want to provide constituents with easy-to-understand information about the process that happens when you take a complaint before a magisterial district judge.
