Scheidt, Bodor Top Ballots in Berks Judicial Race
(Reading, PA) -- Tuesday's primary election in Berks County featured a race for two seats on the bench of the Court of Common Pleas. Justin Bodor of Oley Township and Jill Scheidt of Wyomissing came out on top for getting the most votes in both parties' primaries. Scheidt got 41-percent of the Democratic and Republican votes; Bodor got 38-percent of the Democratic votes and 32-percent of the GOP votes. Scheidt has been a family law and criminal defense attorney for 30 years in Berks County. Bodor has served as an assistant district attorney since 2010. The two open judges' seats stem from Tim Rowley's retirement two years ago and the death of Paul Yatron last year.
