Church announces candidacy for
Shinglehouse District Justice

SHINGLEHOUSE - Barry L. Church has announced his candidacy for magisterial district judge for District Court 55-4-01 in the 2011 election. He will cross file for the six-year seat which is being vacated by Barbra J Easton.

Mr. Church has been a resident of Shinglehouse since 1977. He is married to Janette Lanphere Church and has two adult children and five grandchildren. He is a 1973 graduate of Bolivar Central School and attended Alfred State College in 1974-75.

Church was the owner and operator of B. L. Church Construction for 30 years, successfully completing projects in multiple states on the East coast. He is currently employed by Campus Construction Management Group of Rochester, NY as a Project Manager / Contract Administrator responsible for school construction projects in several communities.
He and his wife are also the owners of Shinglehouse U-Storit, a local self-storage facility.

He has been actively involved in local government his entire adult life, serving as a member of the Shinglehouse Borough Council for 29 years, with the last nine years as president. During this time he has served on the finance, personnel, water, sewer, and police committees. He has shared in the responsibility of writing, enacting and enforcing local laws and ordinances. Also during his tenure, he was instrumental in the reconstruction of the Borough Park and nature trail. This included acquiring all applicable grants, designing the majority of the facilities and voluntarily assisting with the construction of nearly all of the park infrastructure.

Mr. Church was a charter member and three-time past president of the Oswayo Valley Lions Club. For fifteen years he served as co-chairman of the community Fourth of July celebration, the Country Festival. In his spare time he enjoys spending time with his family, outdoor recreational activities, golfing, and attends church on a regular basis.

If elected he is committed to fair and equal treatment for everyone who appears before the Court. “My years of experience in dealing with people, both as a public official and business owner, will serve as a valuable asset in this position. When deliberating the outcome of cases I will strongly consider not only the impact of my decisions on the perpetrators, but also the rights of the victims to recover losses that may occur.”

Magisterial District Court 55-4-01 includes the voting precincts of; Allegany, Clara, Genesee, Hebron, Pleasant Valley, Roulette, North Sharon, South Sharon, and Oswayo Townships; Shinglehouse and Oswayo Boroughs.
