Effingham County Probate Court chief clerk Judy Suhor announced Monday she is seeking election as probate judge.
Suhor has been a resident of Effingham County for 21 years and worked under former probate judge Frances Seckinger for 34 years. She has been married to Joseph Suhor for 25 years and they have four grown children, including one who graduated from South Effingham High School in 2000 and another who graduated from Effingham County High School in 2006.
Suhor attended school in Louisiana and continued her education at the University of Georgia. She has studied Georgia probate, elections, firearms and vital records laws for the past 10 years.
“We have together moved the office into the technology era of today,” she said. “We have remembered to keep the family values that make the probate court set aside from all our courts. We help family with family issues; no one has broken the law.”
She was worked with the Parent Teacher Associations of Effingham County schools and served as president of the county council of PTAs. She is also an active member of St. Boniface Catholic Church in Springfield.
“If elected, I give my promise that I will continue to have an open door policy to be available to answer and assist anyone with any problem,” Suhor said. “If I don’t have the answer, I will seek to help find the answer.”
