“I am hereby humbly asking for the support of our district to run for the House of Representatives and continue a new chapter of community service to benefit everyone,” Halcovage said according to the Republican Herald.
Halcovage said he has been approached by people throughout the district about running for the seat that includes Schuylkill, Carbon, Columbia, Lebanon, and Montour counties and parts of Berks, Luzerne, and Northumberland counties.
