Vivian Zumas | The Candidate

Bethlehem Roots

Born and raised in Bethlehem to Greek immigrant parents, Vivian grew up with good family values and a strong work ethic.  Vivian's father worked at Bethlehem Steel before starting his own painting and sandblasting company.  He eventually went back to his true love of farming and to this day, at the age of 82, still works at his goat farm.  Vivian's parents stressed the importance of a good education and worked hard so she could attend kindergarten at St. Anne's Elementary School.  The following years, she attended Notre Dame Elementary School, graduated from Bethlehem Catholic High School in 1993, and DeSales University in 1997.  

Vivian's old family home still stands on the corner of Center St and Union Blvd, as do the memories of her childhood friends and neighbors.  In 2005, she married her law-school sweetheart and continued to reside in the City of Bethlehem until 2010, when her family moved to Hanover Township.  Vivian Zumas has been married for over 11 years and is the proud mother of two fun and energetic boys, Anthony (9) and Lambros (4).  

Vivian Zumas has the support and love of colleagues, friends, as well as her mom and dad, her brother Michael Zumas, all of her aunts, uncles, and cousins who all continue to reside in Bethlehem, Pa., the greatest city in America!   Vivian Zumas won the (D) and (R) nomination on May 16th and successfully ran unopposed for Magisterial District 03-1-04 Judge on Tuesday, November 7, 2017.
