HD-95: Schreiber Out of 2016 Race, York Dems Seek New Candidate
Schreiber will finish out his term but this leaves Democrats without a candidate. The only obvious choice for the Dems would be York Mayor Kim Bracey, yet Haber reports that she isn’t interested.
The Democrats have until August 25th to decide on a candidate, so just how will they do it?
Well, an email from York County Democratic Party Chair Chad Baker explains that potential applicants can send in their resumes and letters of interest to the party. One must be a registered Democrat, at least 21 years old, and a resident of the 95th district for at least a year as of Election Day. Those letters were be accepted up to Friday, August 12th.
On the 13th, the applications will be distributed to the Democratic County Committee members from the 95th district as well as the York County Dems Executive Committee.
That Tuesday, the 16th, the York Democrats will hold a public Q&A with potential candidates. Questions will be submitted in writing ahead of time.
Finally on August 17th, the County Party will choose their nominee and send it to the State Party for approval from its Executive Committee.
The 95th district consists of the city of York.
