Charlie Baum, Magisterial District Judge Charles Baum.
Pop, Dad, Chas, Charlie, Baumie, CB. Judge Baum is in his eighth year as an elected judge serving Perkasie, Sellersville, East and West Rockhill Townships, part of Telford, Trumbauersville and Millford Townships. Prior to being the current judge, Chuck operated his family's business, the Perkasie News-Herald, the hometown weekly newspaper that was in his family for 85 years! He was the reporter, editor and publisher for 35 years. He ran the business with 16 other employees until he saw the writing on the wall (no pun intended) and decided to sell in 1998. He started working for the News-Herald in high school and earned a BS in journalism-printing from the Rochester Institute of Technology. Professionally, Chuck enjoys being a judge because every day is so different. One day it is a tough criminal who is involved with drugs or alcohol, or it's a teen involved in under-age drinking or serial offenders who need intense help and counseling. He enjoys working with people within the community. He can also officiate weddings, which he performs over 50 a year (In fact, Chuck married Ashley and I back in 2007!) Personally, Chuck loves working with people of all aages and walks of life. He tries to treat people how he would want to be treated in their shoes. He respects everyone and tries to be compassionate whenever he can. He also enjoys being out on the golf course and being able to follow the stock market. Charlie has been the President of the Perkasie Historical Society for over 20 years now. The Historical Society helps to maintaint and operate the popular Perkasie Carousel. He is also serves as a officer of the Pierce Library Association, Perkasie Industrial Development Authority and local charity foundation. He is the former Vice President and director of the Pennsylvania Newspaper Association. He is the secretary for both the Bucks County and District 12 Judges Associations. He is also honored to be on the Pennridge High School Wall of Fame, which honors graduates who have made significant contributions to society through either career achievements or community service efforts. Charlie is also one of the longest clients at the Grand View Hospital Cardiac Rehab Center, where he 'works out' at least four times a week. Charlie had 5-artery bypass surgery in 2002. And Chuck is one of those guys who you could turn to for anything. Easily one of the nicest people I have ever met. And even more than that is his dedication to the town of Perkasie. His rap sheet above goes to show you how much public service and volunteering he does. It's unbelievable the amount of pride he has in his community. And he is the best listener you will also ever run into. To me, that is Chuck's best attribute. He makes you feel important and really cares about you, genuinely.
