Owner of Midtown Scholar Bookstore will run for Harrisburg Mayor
Harrisburg has another candidate for mayor.
Eric Papenfuse, the owner of Midtown Scholar Bookstore will be on the ballot for the primary election in May. The book store owner's campaign motto is "Together we can". He says it is a message he takes very seriously. "Our platform is bringing Harrisburg together. It's healing the divisions which have held Harrisburg back, it is modeling a new style of leadership that is built upon coalition building and consensus building and creating a positive image for the City of Harrisburg. It's one we deserve and it's something that can be done. We just need new and effective leaders."
Papenfuse's supporters collected almost double the amount of required signatures needed to make the ballot after going door to door throughout Harrisburg.
