U.S. Rep. Scott Perry’s office confirmed his upcoming town hall event was already booked to capacity shortly after it was announced Wednesday.
The constituent meeting is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, July 30, at the Hummelstown Fire Department building at 249 E. Main St., in Hummelstown. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m., and the event will run from 6 to 7:30.
Perry’s office said constituents can still register for a waitlist on his website at perry.house.gov/town-hall, or by calling his office at 202-225-5836, to receive tickets if and when cancellations are made.
The event is open only to verified constituents, with a ZIP code required for registration and a photo ID upon entrance. The event will also be live-streamed on Perry’s Facebook page at facebook.com/RepScottPerry.
Although he often posts video updates to his websites and conducts call-in events, this is Perry’s first in-person open town hall since 2017.
“Our Hummelstown town hall is the latest in a series of events that I’ve held as a public official. Town halls have always been one of the great means of gathering feedback and hearing from the people I represent,” Perry said in a news release.
The 2020 election will be Perry’s second contest in his new district, 10th Congressional District, following the 2018 redistricting due to the state supreme court’s anti-gerrymandering decision. His district covers all of Dauphin County, as well as York City and northern York County, and eastern Cumberland County, including Carlisle.
Perry first won election in his old district, the former 4th Congressional District, in 2012.
