Scott Wagner acknowledges supporters in York on Tuesday, May 15, 2018, after winning the Republican gubernatorial nomination.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner will host a town hall meeting July 11 in Westmoreland County, one of six such meetings taking place across the state.

Specific details about the meeting locations will be released next week, according to the Wagner campaign.

Other town-hall meetings are scheduled for the following dates:

• Cumberland County, July 5, 6:30 p.m.

• Northampton County, July 7, 3:30 p.m.

• Lackawanna County, July 9, 6:30 p.m.

• Cambria County, July 17, 6:30 p.m.

• Montgomery County, July 18, 6:30 p.m.

“I look forward to participating in these events so I can share with the people of Pennsylvania my ideas to reduce wasteful spending, eliminate property taxes, repeal burdensome regulations, retool and reinvent our education system and put more money into the classroom,” Wagner said.

Wagner and incumbent Gov. Tom Wolf’s campaigns have traded barbs recently when Wagner challenged Wolf to a debate in all of Pennsylvania’s 67 counties, a move that Wolf’s campaign called a political stunt.

Wagner’s running mate, Jeff Bartos, will join him at four of the town-hall meetings.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
