November Argall Report: Past and Present Local Lawmakers Reflect on Legislative Service

POTTSVILLE – The November edition of the local TV program hosted by Senator Dave Argall (R-29) features a recent event sponsored by the Schuylkill Chamber of Commerce and the Schuylkill County Historical Society which hosted 11 former and current members of the state legislature from Schuylkill County.

“This was an historic event,” Senator Argall said. “It was very interesting to see many former and current local lawmakers sit at the same table. These members were both Republicans and Democrats – some fought battles on the floor of the House while others campaigned against each other in order to serve in the legislature.”

The bipartisan roundtable discussed how the General Assembly of Pennsylvania changed in the past 60 years. Participants included Senator Argall as well as former Republican House members Bob Allen, Mike Tobash, and George Uritis, former Democratic House members William Baldwin, James Goodman, Neal Goodman, and Tim Seip, and current House members Jerry Knowles, Joe Kerwin, and Tim Twardzik.

“Regardless of party – these members all learned to work together for this region,” Senator Argall continued.
