Frank Pryor

EAST FALLOWFIELD — A township man announced Wednesday he will seek the 74th District State Representative seat in 2018. Frank Pryor said he would seek the democratic nomination for the seat currently held by State Rep. Harry Lewis Jr. (R-74).

As State Representative, I will advance opportunities for jobs & economic development, advocate for quality education and state of the art school facilities, and support our senior population,” Pryor said in his statement. “We all deserve access to quality health care, safe streets, and affordable access to a college education. My vision is clear. My efforts are focused. My commitment is unwavering.”

Pryor has begun to gather support in the surrounding community for his run.

“Frank is just the kind of person we need to be our State Representative”, said Jim Mosley, an East Fallowfield resident. “He is smart, hardworking, and committed to the long term development in all of the communities that comprise the 74th legislative district.”

The district includes the townships of Caln, East Caln, East Fallowfield, Sadsbury and Valley; the boroughs of Downingtown, Modena, Parkesburg and South Coatesville; and the City of Coatesville.

Pryor has been a faculty member in the Political Science Department at Villanova University since 1997. He has built solid relationships throughout Chester County and with policymakers in Harrisburg. In 2014, Frank was appointed to serve on Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf’s Transition Team.

“Frank is a polished professional,” says Emango Hopewell. “But I am most impressed with his lifetime of community service, volunteerism and dedication to youth development programs like the Coatesville Youth Initiative. He is just the kind of leader our district needs, and the reasoned voice we want in Harrisburg representing our interests.”

“Our team has already begun to knock on doors and engage voters. The response thus far has been fantastic across the entire district. I’m thrilled with the opportunity to serve,” said Pryor.
