Attorney Eric J. Weisbrod is scheduled to make his formal announcement for candidacy on Thursday, January 15, at 1 p.m. at the McConnellsburg Firehall. Following his public announcement, Weisbrod along with fellow judicial candidates Angela Rosenberry Krom, Shawn Meyers and Tim Wilmot will begin circulating petitions February 17 in order to have their names placed on the May 19 spring primary ballot.

Of those seeking office, only two will be sworn into office to fill the seat of retired President Judge John R. Walker and an additional fifth judgeship approved by the legislature last year.

Weisbrod graduated cum laude in 1994 from Mansfield University, where he majored in criminal justice administration, and in 1997 from Dickinson School of Law as a member of the Woolsack Honor Society. The society bestows membership privileges on those individuals achieving academic excellence.

A member of the Franklin County Bar Association, Weisbrod was also admitted to the United States Court of Appeals in 1998 for the federal circuit. In addition to operating a private law practice, Weisbrod currently serves as the special prosecutor for the Fulton County Domestic Relations Office.

Community involvement includes membership on the Greater Waynesboro Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, the board of the Waynesboro Area YMCA, the NRA and coaching youth sports and activities.

Weisbrod, his wife, Bonnie, and their three children reside in Waynesboro. Local residents wishing to learn more about Weisbrod and his qualifications are encouraged to attend his special announcement at the McConnellsburg Firehall next Thursday.
