Monthly Meeting: Candidate Forum: April 24th, 2014 – York 912 Patriots


Candidate Forum: April 24th, 2014

The York 912 Patriots held a candidates forum on April 24th, 2014 to ask questions of the 2014 Primary Election candidates.  WSBA’s Gary Sutton moderated the forum.  See straw poll results at bottom.  The following candidates were in attendance:

93rd House District

  • Kristin Phillips-Hill (opening remarks only)
  • Ernie Merisotis

94th House District

  • Kelly Henshaw

169th House District

  • Kate Klunk (opening remarks only)
  • Marc Woerner

196th House District

  • Elizabeth Roberts

28th Senate District

  •  Scott Wagner

All other challengers in those races were asked to participate but declined.  Those candidates are Rep. Stan Saylor, Gene Montanarelli, Leroy Wentz, Rep. Seth Grove, and Zachary Hearn.

130 were in attendance.

Our Next Meeting:

Our next meeting will be held sometime in August or September to start preparation for the General Election.  This will give members and candidates time to focus on this Primary Election, and to provide a much needed break to the leadership of the York 912 Patrtiots.  But that doesn’t mean we should stop thinking of how to better serve the group and the community throughout the year.  Please contact us with any ideas you may have.
