Dauphin county Commissioner Mike Pries announced he is jumping in the race to be the Republican nominee in the open 15th Congressional district next year.
Pries announced his candidacy in a video and an op-ed written by Pries.
Pries has served as a Commissioner for 6 years, and a township supervisor for 6 year.
“As Dauphin County Commissioner and a local government leader for the past 12 years, I have put the needs of hardworking families first and have never raised property taxes,” Pries’ website reads.
