HARRISBURG, Pa. (WPMG) – As Russ Diamond from PA’s 102nd Legislative District speaks, ReopenPA supporters join him at the podium and stick around while other speakers take to the podium as well.
At the beginning of the event, audio problems caused the need for a megaphone provided by the cameraman with WPMG to continue with the rally.
A fair estimate puts crowd attendance for the event at nearly 3000 as the people lined both sides of State Street from the second fleet of Capitol steps to the corner and just past the State Street Advisor’s / Commonwealth Foundation buildings on either side.
Speakers from the event included:
- Matthew Bellis – Administrator from ReopenPA Facebook Page
- Russ Diamond – 102nd PA Legislative District Representative
- Joel Underwood – ReopenPA Organizer / Spokesman
- Attorney Marc Scaringi – Schuylkill County, PA
- Daniel DeVito – Candidate for 45th Legislative District Representative
- Mike Jones – 93rd Legislative District Representative
- David Argall – Pennsylvania Senator
- Doug Mastriano – Pennsylvania Senator
