Democratic Nominee Announces Town Hall Meetings
Michael Pipe, the Democratic nominee for the 5th Congressional District, announced today that he will be holding a series of 12 town hall meetings across the region, with a stop in State College at the Schlow Memorial Library on August 10 from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm. The full list of meetings and more information is viewable on Pipe’s campaign website.
Pipe will be facing Republican incumbent Glenn Thompson (“GT”) this fall, who he has called out for only making himself available for fundraising events during the summer recess. Pipe said in a YouTube announcement that, “the fact that [GT] is only meeting with people who can donate to his campaign is just plain wrong.”
Pipe graduated in spring 2009 after returning to Penn State following a 1-year stint with the Obama presidential campaign. Look forward to this race heating up in the next couple months– for background start with the article Tom Kent wrote about meeting Pipe.
