As required by the Constitution of Pennsylvania, the legislative districts for the House of Representatives and the state Senate were redrawn after the 2010 census.
As a result, the 81st District will now include portions of Centre County that are currently part of the 77th District represented by Scott Conklin: Port Matilda Borough, West and North 2nd precincts of Ferguson Township, Half Moon Township and the with North 2nd, South 1 and 3 precincts of Patton Township. Also added were all of Taylor and Worth townships.
The 2014 general election will require residents of those Centre County municipalities to elect a new state representative.
Please consider casting your vote for Richard Irvin. He has been the treasurer of Huntingdon County for 18 years and brings a true passion to serve the people of the 81st.
