Lyter seeks re-election as judge

MIFFLINTOWN – Magisterial District Judge Barbara M. Lyter is seeking re-election for district 41-3-01, which encompasses Mifflintown and Thompsontown boroughs, Delaware, Fayette, Fermanagh, Greenwood, Monroe and Susquehanna townships.

Lyter said she was first appointed in June 1989 by then-Gov. Robert Casey to fill the vacancy left by Marian Mertz and was elected in 1990, 1996, 2002 and 2008.

Lyter is a member of the Juniata County Business and Professional Women’s Club, Mifflin Chapter Order of the Eastern Star No. 260, Juniata County Kiwanis Club, Special Court Judges Association of PA, the Criminal Justice Advisory Board, S.U.N. Home Health Service Community Advisory Board, Central Juniata EMS Board, and a member of Aldersgate United Methodist Church.

A Juniata County native and resident of Fermanagh Township, Lyter and her husband of almost 40 years, Donald, have one son, Daniel, a daughter-in-law, Carolyn Saner Lyter and four grandchildren, Mackenzie, Riley and twins Bailee and Kash.

“I am proud of my 24 years of experience in the magisterial district judge’s office, I pledge to continue to serve our citizens full-time with dedication, fairness and with respect for the law. I plan to cross-file on both the Republican and Democratic tickets for the May primary,” Lyter said.
