MIFFLINTOWN - Robert Nulton has announced his candidacy for Magisterial District Judge in Juniata County in 2013 as a third-party candidate.
Nulton was a Republican, but has since joined the Constitution Party.
The district entails the following municipalities: Fayette Township, Delaware Township, Fermanagh Township, Greenwood Township, Monroe Township, Susquehanna Township, Mifflintown Borough and Thompsontown Borough. Magisterial District Judge Barbara Lyter currently holds this seat.
"I was previously a Republican but have been unhappy with the way, the direction in which the two major parties have taken us. Parties work for themselves and I am here to work for the people as a public servant, not a politician. Being an elected official is a public service not a career," Nulton said.
Nulton said he believes that officials should serve no more than two terms in office and then step down to allow for others to receive the opportunity to be a leader. He believes that parties should not choose who gets into office, it should be the people who decide.
"We need more constitutionally-minded individuals in office," he added.
"I feel if we did, I believe that our nation would be in a better place. But, it all starts at the local level. So that is why I am announcing my candidacy for Magisterial District Judge of District 41-3-01," Nulton said.
Nulton said he ran for office in 2011 for Perry County Commissioner and placed fifth out of 12 candidates. After the election he moved to McAlisterville.
Nulton said he also serves as the State Chairman of the Constitution Party of Pennsylvania.
Nulton is married and has two boys and another on the way. He and his family lives in Fayette Township.
