Ciresi to seek reelection to 146th Dist. House seat

- By Evan Brandt

With the submission of petitions with more than 800 signatures, incumbent state Rep. Joe Ciresi, D146th District, announced his intention to seek a third term in office.

Ciresi thanked the 36 supporters who helped him to get the required signatures in an abbreviate­d time period.

“After the decision of the Pennsylvan­ia Supreme Court regarding the updated redistrict­ing maps and subsequent legal challenges that reduced the petition period from 21 to 10 days, I’m thrilled with the outpouring of community support to collect over 800 signatures to get me on the ballot,” Ciresi said in a press release.

Ciresi has served as the representa­tive of the 146th District since his election in 2018.

“It’s been my pleasure serving the current 146th District and I’m looking forward to the opportunit­y to serve the newly drawn 146th District after the upcoming elections,” Ciresi stated.

The redistrict­ing process which followed the 2020 Census moved the 146th House District west. It no longer includes the municipali­ties of Trappe or Perkiomen and now encompasse­s all of Pottstown, not just a portion, as well as West Pottsgrove, Lower Pottsgrove, Limerick and Royersford.

The primary election will be held on Tuesday, May 17, and the general election will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 8.
