Attorney Jerrold A. Sulcove has announced that he will seek election for Court of Common Pleas judge in the 39th Judicial District, which serves Franklin and Fulton counties in Pennsylvania.
Sulcove will run for a vacancy created by the retirement of Judge Richard J. Walsh.
Sulcove is a partner with the Chambersburg law firm Black and Davison, where he practices with his father, Jan; brother, Elliott; and other attorneys.
Sulcove graduated from Chambersburg Area Senior High School and received his law degree from Temple University’s James E. Beasley School of Law, according to a news release.
A Chambersburg resident, Sulcove is the son of Jan and Diane Sulcove and husband of Lauren E. Sulcove, an assistant district attorney for Franklin County. He is a member of the board of directors for Franklin County Head Start.
Sulcove is a registered Republican, but judge candidates can cross-file in Pennsylvania to appear on both Democratic and GOP ballots.
The Jerrold Sulcove for Judge Committee has been formed in support of Sulcove’s candidacy. Roy A. Himelfarb is chairman of the committee, and John Winsko and Jan Sulcove are the co-treasurers. Lynn Lerew is an honorary co-chairman of the committee.
Pennsylvania’s primary election will be May 21. The municipal election is scheduled for Nov. 5.
