Three to appear on ballot for open Pa. judge position

March 14, 2013

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — Three Franklin County, Pa., attorneys will appear on ballots this year as they seek to become the 39th Judicial District’s newest judge in the Court of Common Pleas.

A vacancy on the bench was created with the retirement of Richard J. Walsh.

Jeremiah Zook, Jeffrey S. Evans and Jerrold A. Sulcove met the filing deadline and received approval for ballots, according to a Pennsylvania Department of State database.

Pennsylvania’s primary election will be May 21. The municipal election is scheduled for Nov. 5.

The 39th Judicial District serves both Franklin and Fulton counties.

Zook, of Guilford Township, is an assistant district attorney in Franklin County.

Evans, also of Guilford Township, is a Waynesboro-based attorney who represents five Franklin County municipalities as solicitor.

Sulcove, of the Borough of Chambersburg, is a partner with the Chambersburg law firm Black and Davison, where he practices with some of his family members.

Judge candidates can cross-file to appear on both the Democratic and GOP ballots.
