Chuck Hobbs' Story...I was born on a small farm in Southern York County. My wife, Kelly, and I are fortunate enough to be able to raise our three young children on the same family farm. Growing up in a farming community taught me lessons in life that have shaped me into the principled father and husband I am today.
It is my firm belief that our community will be facing tough issues in our future. I also believe, with principled leadership, we can build a solid foundation for our community to grow strong together.
Upon this strong foundation, we can raise our children in a community that is prepared to conquer new problems with bold new ideas.
"Our children are counting on us to make the right decisions now."
I have spent my entire career as a trial attorney representing clients, from all walks of life, in Pennsylvania State Courts, and United States Federal Court. For Qualifications Click: Meet Chuck Hobbs
As your next Judge of the York County Common Pleas Court, I intend to uphold the intent of Pennsylvania Constitution and the Constitution of the United States of America.
I believe the role of the Judiciary is to administer and interpret the law as the Legislature intended it to be. I do not believe a Judge’s role is to create new law and legislate from the bench.
I am prepared to treat everyone with respect and dignity on all sides of the bench, and to help lead our community into the future guided by faith and reason.
