A special election will be held March 15 in Berks County to fill the state senate seat of Michael O’Pake, who passed away on Dec. 27.
Democrat Judy Schwank is the former Berks County Commissioner. Republican Larry Medaglia is the current register of wills in Berks County.
O’Pake represented the 11th Senatorial District for 38 years.
Until a new senator is elected, PAN is sending Berk County notary applications to Sen. Andy Dinniman of Chester County.
