DEPASQUALE CAMPAIGN RESPONDS TO LACK OF PERRY TOWN HALLS & CONSTITUENT PARTICIPATION REQUIREMENTS

U.S. Representative Scott Perry (PA-10) hasn't held a town hall in months. Now he's controlling an upcoming town hall by requiring constituents RSVP and to present a valid ID.

Statement: Bud Jackson, Eugene DePasquale campaign spokesperson

Most of Scott Perry’s constituents can’t even recall the last time he hosted a public event to be held accountable and more transparent. Now he’s trying to raise the barrier of entry even higher for constituents who want answers and wish to be heard.

Unlike Scott Perry, Eugene DePasquale believes in more transparency and accountability. He will not intimidate constituents by requiring a valid ID to ask questions or to provide him valuable feedback. Eugene will hold quarterly town hall meetings that encourage more open dialogue, participation, and accountability.
