A surprisingly well-informed ‘Hunger Games’-themed invitation to State Rep. Mike Sturla’s (D-Lancaster) July golf outing and fundraiser arrived in mailboxes today. The pamphlet features copious references to the franchise more in-depth than would be possible for a casual viewer of the film.
In addition to a map of Pennsylvania labeled “PAnem” and a photo of Gov. Tom Corbett tagged as the villainous President Snow, the invite includes event sponsorship levels such as “Tribute Sponsor” and “The Careers”. Further, “Haymitch’s Beer Cart will be available for refreshments.”
Sturla doesn’t face a tough challenge this cycle. His opponent is Tom Garman, the owner of a Lancaster landscaping business. Sturla defeated Garman 62 percent to 38 during last year’s Republican wave election; registration in the 96th district is Democratic 59 percent to 24 percent.
