Town Hall with Susan Boser
August 8, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
The public is invited to meet Susan Boser, candidate for US Congress for Pennsylvania’s 15th District at a Town Hall event in Butler Township on Aug. 8, 2018 from 6:30-8:00 pm. All are welcome, but registered Republicans are particularly encouraged to come and hear her plan to work across the aisle.
The event is sponsored by the Butler County Democratic Committee.
At the meeting, Boser will listen closely to the concerns of those in attendance and discuss her plans to advocate for the district by promoting small businesses, increasing business opportunities through renewable energy, spurring infrastructure development, expanding treatment for addictions, and funding education. She is keenly interested in developing working relationships that cross party lines and that enable her to address the specific challenges of the 15th District.
The district encompasses Armstrong County and most of the eastern part of Butler County, along with Clarion, and Venango counties, among others.
During the program, she will also discuss how her background, education and experience have prepared her to tackle today’s most pressing problems to get positive results.
Boser said she is running for Congress because she cares deeply about the rural way of life. The oldest of five children, she grew up in a small rural town in southwestern New York state, next to northern counties in Pennsylvania. Even though her family struggled financially, Boser has fond memories of her childhood. She knew all the families in town and had a sense of safety and connection in the community. Thus, Boser has a deep understanding of what is important to rural families. For the last 22 years, she has lived in Indiana, PA. Boser has three children and one grandchild.
Boser has 20 years of experience in the mental health field and addiction services. She earned her Ph.D. at Cornell’s Department of Policy Analysis with a focus on human services. She is currently a professor in the Department of Sociology at Indiana University of Pennsylvania and a member of the Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties (APSCUF) union. Additionally, she is active in local government and non-profit organizations.
The event is free. Light refreshments will be served.
