Suchocki opposes Pct. 4 incumbent Johnson in GOP’s March 4 primary

Bernard R. Suchocki is opposing incumbent Lynn Marie Johnson for the position of Justice of the Peace, Precinct 4, for Parker County on the March 4 Republican primary ballot.

There are no Democrats seeking the seat.

Suchocki is a lifelong conservative Republican, a 25-year resident of Parker County, a former NASA engineer and a board-certified trial attorney. He and his wife, Connie, a retired teacher and former Aledo ISD trustee, have been married for 46 years. They have two children, Bernard “Chip” and Amy, and four grandchildren, Savannah, Caroline, Elizabeth and Macy.

Suchocki is currently serving out his term as a council member for the City of Willow Park. He has also served as a member of the Planning & Zoning Commission for Willow Park and as a tax assessor-collector and council member for the City of El Lago, Texas.

As a NASA engineer for 14 years, Suchocki trained Apollo 7 through Apollo 17 astronauts in guidance and navigation. He is a participant in the Presidential Medal of Freedom Award as a member of the Apollo XIII Mission Operations Team that rescued the Apollo 13 crew after an oxygen tank exploded. During the shuttle program he was a software manager responsible for coordinating the system software requirement for the Shuttle Avionics Integration Laboratory.

As a public servant for the past 25 years, Suchocki has given presentations for many schools and organizations about his personal experience on the Apollo program, particularly including Apollo 13.  Suchocki was also the managing partner and majority shareholder in the law firm of Suchocki, Bullard & Cummings, P.C. As a trial attorney for 32 years, he said he tried more than 100 lawsuits before judges throughout the state.

He said he believes the core requirement for being a judge is plain old “honesty,” and he is ever mindful of Deuteronomy 1:16: “And I charged your judges at the time, saying, Hear the causes between our brethren and Judge righteously between every man and his brother, and the stranger that is with him.”
