This debate will be conducted on a fair and balanced basis with EQUAL TIME given to both candidates on ALL questions posed to them from the Moderator, the Panel and from the Audience.

This debate is especially timely given the sharp political differences that exist on a national, statewide and local basis, from Conservative to Liberal/Progressive. The candidates are expected to differ widely on how the people of Union and Snyder Counties may be represented in Harrisburg.

You are welcome to attend this free and open Forum/Debate.

Upcoming SVC Meetig – April 9

Join Us Monday for our next SVC meeting.

YOU RE INVITED to our free and open to the public meeting on Monday, April 9th, 78:30 pm.

This Monday evening, we deal with several pending lawsuits. The first is the overreach of Governor Tom Wolf, attempting to force home care workers into a Union. This one is before the U.S. Supreme Court.

The second case is the overreach of the State Teachers union, PSEA, forcing Greg Hartnett and several other public school teachers to pay dues and join their Union.  Hartnett and fellow teachers currently have this matter before the Pennsylvania courts.

Greg Harnett, a Pennsylvania public school teacher says “ I should not be forced to fund a private politically active organization just to do what I love”.
Our guest speakers include two attorneys from the Fairness Center who are pursuing these matters on behalf of their clients.  This will be a meeting to remember!


The Fairness Center will be represented at the meeting by David Osborne, President and General Counsel; Nathan McGrath, Vice President and Litigation Counsel; and Conner Drigotas, Director of Communications and Outreach.
