Local Republicans Formally Choose Bryan Tate For 95th District In Closed-door Session

York Daily Record

In a closed-door session, York County Republicans formally picked Bryan Tate, 45, of York, to be their party’s nominee to replace former state Rep. Eugene DePasquale, D-West Manchester Township.

Members of the York County Republican Committee who represent the 95th district approved Tate at a meeting at Crispus Attucks Community Center in York Thursday evening. During a news conference afterward, committee chairman Bob Wilson said the vote was unanimous.

Tate serves as the vice president of philanthropy at the York County Community Foundation.

The special election for the 95th district is scheduled to take place with the statewide primary in May.

The beginning of the meeting, during which Wilson explained the process, was public. Wilson said Tate would introduce himself, take questions from party officials, and then committee members would discuss and vote. Those segments were not public.

“It’s party business. It’s just the way it is,” Wilson said afterward.

He said committee members are elected by their peers, and “they take the concerns of the local people here.”
