A Hampden Township Democrat Wednesday announced he will seek his party’s nomination for Cumberland County commissioner in the May 21 primary.

Michael Fedor is a former member of Duncannon Borough Council and former chair of the Cumberland County Democratic Committee.

In his announcement, Fedor said he faced economic adversity in his youth and worked hard to contribute to his family. That led him to the education field, where he was a former public school teacher, as well as arbitration manager at AFSCME Council 13. He was also a former director of legislative affairs and unclaimed property bureau director at the Pennsylvania State Treasury.

“Here, in Cumberland County, I’ve worked hard to build a life of which I am proud, just as I am proud to be a member of this community,” he said in the announcement. “My wife and I chose to raise our family here so that our own children would have the sense of community that every child — every family — deserves. Like community, government is the practice of all of us pitching in to build better lives together. As commissioner, I am determined to work hard to improve the quality of life for our community, and to protect what has been built as well as that which is irreplaceable in this county.”

Fedor lives with his wife, Serena, and three boys who attend Cumberland Valley School District. For more information, visit www.votefedor.com.
