Kevin Schreiber is officially the Democratic nominee for the 95th House seat vacated by now-Auditor General Eugene DePasquale.

Schreiber, who was nominated by the Democratic Party of York County a few weeks ago, was unanimously approved today as the candidate by the state Democratic executive committee.

"I am honored to have the full support of the Democratic Party at both the state and local levels," Schreiber said in a press release. "I am also honored to be the nominee for this special election. I look forward to speaking to the voters in the 95th and earning their vote along the way."

According to the release:

Schreiber, 32, began the nomination process in December by submitting his letter of intent to the Democratic Party of York County. Schreiber took part in the public forum sponsored by the party where he was given the chance to answer questions submitted by voters regarding issues involving the 95th. Upon the resignation of Eugene DePasquale, the Commonwealth's new Auditor General, a 14-person nomination committee from the Democratic Party of York County nominated Schreiber. The nomination was submitted to the State Party where it was approved today.

"Kevin's hard work and dedication to the City of York make him the best candidate for this position," said Democratic Party of York County Chair Bob Kefauver. "Kevin has hit the ground running in every position he has held and there is no doubt he will do the same for the residents of the 95th District. We are pleased he received the full support of the state party today."
