Rep. Lewis offers ‘coffee chat’
Event with 74th District residents set for Thursday
DOWNINGTOWN >> State Rep. Harry Lewis Jr. said that as part of his efforts to discuss important state issues with residents he is hosting a “coffee chat” with 74th District residents.
Residents of the 74th Legislative District can participate in a coffee chat on Thursday, Oct. 27, from 9:30-11:30 a.m. at Lewis’ district office at 131 Wallace Road, Unit No. 14. The 74th District encompasses Caln, Coatesville, Downingtown, East Caln, East Fallowfield, Modena, Parkesburg, South Coatesville, Sadsbury and Valley.
“Even as the legislative session is coming to a close, we are working to pass important bills that will benefit people living in the commonwealth,” Lewis, R-74, of Caln, said in a statement. “Because any legislation not signed into law at the end of session will have to again begin the process of being drafted – passed in committee, House and Senate; and signed by the governor – now is an important time to act. Residents are encouraged to join me to learn more about these bills and to share any state-related concerns they may have.”
His staff said an update on issues affecting the commonwealth will be provided, and Lewis will answer questions on state-related matters. Coffee and light refreshments will be served.
Lewis is seeking re-election in November. Democratic Downingtown Mayor Josh Maxwell is running against him. There will be a debate between Lewis and Maxwell for the 74th District on Saturday, Oct. 29 at noon at the Coatesville Senior Center at 250 Harmony Street in Coatesville.
