Mechanicsburg lawyer Ron Tomasko Monday morning announced he is seeking one of the two open seats for Cumberland County judge in this year’s election.
Tomasko practices law from his office in Mechanicsburg and has practiced law for 28 years. He said he has been in private practice in the region since 1991 after receiving a bachelor’s degree from Penn State University and a law degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law.
Tomasko said he has represented businesses, as well as individuals, and also serves as a municipal solicitor and specially appointed district attorney.
“I have dedicated my professional life to the rule of law,” Tomasko said in a written statement.
“For over a quarter century, I have worked to help the hard-working people of Cumberland County find justice in our courts. I seek this position to continue that mission and to make our county a better and safer place for all the good people that live here.”
Tomasko has also held positions on local boards and has volunteered with youth sports and church-related activities. He lives in Mechanicsburg with his wife, Joyce, and two sons, Alex and Nicholas.
There are two seats open for the Cumberland County Court of Common Pleas, and there are already several candidates vying for those open positions. Other candidates include Derek Clepper, Lisa Grayson, Matt Smith and Kirk Sohonage.
