Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - LOCAL NEWS - Staff Re­port

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.
