My name is Marc Alfarano, and I am the Democratic Candidate for Magisterial District Judge in East and West Norriton.
As the District Judge, I will represent the first level of judicial authority of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and handle cases that are primarily based within our community. The MDJ Court is where most people experience the judicial system for the first time. It exists to help citizens resolve disputes that arise within the district. The responsibilities include civil cases up to $12,000, landlord-tenant actions, minor criminal offenses, and traffic citations. The district judge can also perform marriage ceremonies!
I am running for this position because I want people to have a judge who is open-minded and fair. By serving on the bench, I believe I will build trust within the community by bringing integrity and a strong sense of purpose to the difficult job of hearing and deciding cases. If given this tremendous opportunity to serve, I will be sure to guard the public trust given to me and to never forget that my primary purpose is to protect the rights of the people of East and West Norriton.

Marc has taught middle school social studies for the past twelve years, bringing his lifelong love of civics and history to the classroom. He has also been involved in community life for over a decade. He has served as a member of the East Norriton Historical Advisory Commission. For the past six years, Marc has served as an elected member of the East Norriton Board of Supervisors, where he worked diligently to hold the line on taxes, while bringing much needed improvements to the township. One accomplishment Marc is particularly proud of is enacting an ordinance which banned smoking in all East Norriton playground areas.
