Three Democrats Set Sights on State Sen. Andy Dinniman’s Seat
Three Democratic candidates will be vying for the seat of State Sen. Andy Dinniman in April primaries, writes Bill Rettew for the Daily Local News.
Dinniman, one of Chester County’s longest-tenured public servants, announced he would be retiring at the end of his term.
Chester County Democratic Committee members voted earlier this month to endorse Don Vymazal, Dinniman’s governmental relations adviser, to succeed him as a candidate for the 19th Senate District.
“I have spent many elections working as a member of this committee to elect qualified Democrats to office,” said Vymazal. “Now, I am humbled to have their overwhelming support and endorsement.”
Vymazal has also been endorsed by Dinniman.
Meanwhile, Gov. Tom Wolf has endorsed State Rep. Carolyn Comitta of West Chester for the position.
Wolf called Comitta “a champion for our children” who would “work side by side with me to ensure that our children are receiving the education they deserve.”
Also running for the seat is Kyle Boyer, a Tredyffrin-Easttown School Board member and the head of the West Chester NAACP.
If elected, Boyer plans to work on adding affordable housing, improving public education, and curtailing the opioid epidemic, among other things.
