In 2021, I was appointed and then elected Magistrate of Upshur County. I am running for re-election to the Magistrate position.

I believe in faith, family, and fairness. I make level-headed decisions and show compassion to anyone in need. I continue to work hard to make positive impacts in Upshur County. I am the fourth generation of Suders that have been raised in Upshur County. I am married to Christy Suder, a teacher for Upshur County Schools, and we have four children.

I was a private business owner for 30 years, working in the Coal, Oil and Gas fields, and I maintain a family farm. I am a member of South Buckhannon Mission Church and The Breath of God Worship Service at The Way of Holiness.

I believe it is very important to give back to one’s community. I am a member of the Southern Upshur Business Association (SUBA), Buckhannon Moose, Franklin Lodge #7 AF and AM Masonic Lodge, Osiris Temple of Wheeling, Scottish Rite of Clarksburg, York Rite of Elkins, Upshur County Shrine Club, Upshur County Shuttle Patrol, Upshur County Farm Bureau, and the Upshur County Hall of Fame Committee. While serving three terms on the Upshur County Board of Education, I served on several community committees.

I would like to thank the community members for their support.

May God bless you and your family,
Alan M. Suder
Magistrate Upshur County Division 2
