“I have known Justin for many years. As a matter of fact, we meet the evening of his wedding rehearsal dinner at Wyomissing Restaurant, which I owned at the time. Knowing his wife Jessica through collaboration with BCPS for 2nd chance employers, I knew that her husband Justin had to be a straight forward man. Which he is, in all ways. Not only as an ADA but as a family man where he resides in Oley, PA with his wife Jessica, daughter Charlotte and son Gavin.  I have been asking Justin for 10 years now to run for judge, his response has always been, “when the time is right”. Well now is the right time. Without any doubts or 2nd thoughts, Justin Bodor would be the right person to be the next Berks County Judge of the common pleas court.”
