DePasquale to hold first town hall next month
State Auditor General Eugene DePasquale will hold his first town hall event since announcing his bid for the state's 10th Congressional District seat.
DePasquale, a Democrat who is expected to be a strong candidate to dethrone four-term Republican incumbent U.S. Rep. Scott Perry, R-Carroll Township, will hold the town hall from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 23, at Widener University Commonwealth Law School in Harrisburg.
The 200-seat venue will be open to the public, and tickets are not required. The event also will be livestreamed, according to a news release. More details will be made available in the coming weeks.
DePasquale in 2020 is facing a primary battle with Democrat Tom Brier, an author and attorney from Hershey. Hershey native and Republican Bobby Jeffries is challenging Perry in the primaries.
