Magisterial District Judge Candidate Ferris Webby To Hold Meet & Greet

On Friday, April 28 from 6-8 p. m. at Sitko’s Farmhouse Restaurant, Ferris Webby, candidate for Mountain Top Area Magisterial District Judge, will hold a meet and greet. The event is free and open to the public.

The meet and greet will be an opportunity for community members to learn more about Webby’s candidacy and his background. Attendees will be able to enjoy light refreshments at no charge and yard signs will be available to take home.

Webby, a local attorney with more than 35 years’ legal experience, is running to fill the open seat vacated by Magisterial District Judge Ronald Swank, who retired after decades of community service from behind the bench.

“For more than 30 years, at every turn, the Mountain Top community has been nothing short of gracious and helpful. As an experienced, fair and tough Magisterial District Judge, I vow to do everything I can to repay this community for all it has done for me and my family,” Webby said. “Whether it be our law enforcement officers and first responders or our teachers and active community volunteers, there are countless people who make this area so special. This event is an opportunity for everyone to come out and learn more about how I plan to protect and preserve everything we hold dear in this community.”

Webby has been a member of the Mountain Top community for more than three decades. He lives in Slocum Township with his wife Elaine. The two raised four children –Angel Mae, Ferris Jr., Charbi Anne and Loriah Ann –who all graduated from Crestwood High School and King’s College. Webby, a King’s College and Cooley School of Law alum, has spent decades supporting his family and the Mountain Top community.

He has volunteered at local bazaars and Crestwood School District functions and is an active parishioner at St. Anthony/St. George’s Maronite Catholic Church in Wilkes-Barre. He also spent many years as a youth baseball coach in Mountain Top and is a past recipient of the Recognition Award from the Mountain Top Boy Scouts and the Crestwood Parent Teacher Association. He has served as a member of the Luzerne County heroin drug task force, a mock trial coach for budding legal professionals, and a community educator holding free seminars on concealed weapon laws and gun safety.
