State Representative candidate Frank Pryor received local endorsements today from East Fallowfield Township Supervisors Wilson Lambert Jr. and Joseph Heffern for his pursuit of the 74th House District seat. South Coatesville Borough Councilman Kenneth Bond and Councilwoman Renee Carey have thrown their support behind Pryor as well. Mr. Pryor announced his candidacy last fall and has been receiving widespread support.
In explaining his support for Pryor, Heffern said, “Frank has an impressive background in state and local politics and has a demonstrated record of leadership and commitment to the communities and families that make up the 74th legislative district. He will be ready to lead on day one in office and deliver much needed resources as a member of the General Assembly in Harrisburg. He is by far the most prepared and qualified candidate for the job.”
Pryor has been a faculty member in the Political Science Department at Villanova University since 1997, and was a 2014 appointee to Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf’s Transition Team. He has also served as a Chief of Staff for an elected official in a major Northeast city.
South Coatesville Borough Councilwoman Carey says about Pryor, “He has coached young people in the Coatesville Area Little League, at the Brandywine YMCA and at the United Sports Center in Downingtown. He mentors young men in the B.R.I.D.G.E.E. program at Coatesville Area Senior High School. He is a past President of the Board of Trustees at the Coatesville Area Public Library and a volunteer for the Brandywine Health Foundation and Coatesville Youth Initiative. He’s also a member of the Regional Planning Committee for the Western Chester County Chamber of Commerce and supports the Downingtown-Thorndale Chamber of Commerce. His demonstrated level of commitment to youth development programming and local businesses are why I’m supporting Frank to be our next State Representative.”
“I appreciate the endorsements from these fine local Democratic officials”, said Pryor. “Supporting and providing leadership to community organizations has always been important to me and that’s why I am running for State Representative.”
