CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — A Chambersburg councilman from the Third Ward and retired police sergeant has announced his plan to run for a magisterial district judge position in district 39-2-01.

Glenn Manns said in a news release being elected would allow him to continue to serve the citizens of the Chambersburg area.  

"For 35 years I have served the people of Chambersburg with honor, integrity and compassion. I want to continue this service by being the next magisterial district judge," Manns said in the news release.  

Manns said he will run his campaign highlighting his experience as a law enforcement officer and supervisor, as well as his time as a councilman in Chambersburg. Combined, that work spans three decades.

Manns is certified as a magisterial district judge through the Minor Judiciary Education Board.

"I have been a participant within the courts as not only a prosecuting police officer but also as a witness and victim," Manns said. "These experiences have given me a real-world understanding of the courts to better serve in a fair and impartial manner."

Manns and his wife, Jeanie, have been married for 32 years, and they have three children and eight grandchildren.

He is manager of the Shooter's Range gun shop, where as a certified firearms instructor, he teaches safety, marksmanship and responsible firearms ownership.
