A Republican candidate for governor of Pennsylvania will meet with local residents during a reception Jan. 30 in Elizabeth Twp.

The event for Paul Mango is being sponsored by a group called Vets for Mango and will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Sunset Room, 95 Enterprise St., just off Route 48 near the Central Highlands section of the township, a spokeswoman said.

Although the event is free and open to the public, people planning to attend to should RSVP by calling Brandon Rumbaugh at (724) 812-9285 or emailing bcrusmc@gmail.com.

Mango, of Richland Twp., is a graduate of the United States Military Academy and Harvard Business School who retired after 29 years with the management consulting firm McKinsey & Co.

Along with Pittsburgh attorney Laura Ellsworth, state Rep. Mike Turzai of McCandless and state Sen. Scott Wagner of York County, Mango is one of four declared candidates seeking the Republican nomination to challenge incumbent Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf.
