Reichard Announces Candidacy for PA’s 90th Legislative District


WAYNESBORO- Chad Reichard has officially announced his candidacy to replace retiring State Representative Paul Schemel.

As a lifelong resident of Waynesboro, whose family settled in Franklin County in 1770, Reichard stands for the values and integrity of the people of Franklin County and looks forward to sharing his unique, pragmatic vision with the residents of the 90th Legislative District.

“First and foremost, I am committed to bringing my fiscal responsibility to Harrisburg to protect the hardworking families of the district. Coming from a farming family, being employed since high school, and working with men and women from all backgrounds and economic circumstances, I appreciate the importance of keeping more money in taxpayers’ wallets. The residents of Franklin County know how to spend their hard-earned money better than Harrisburg.”

Reichard, whose career has been in public service, currently serves as planning and zoning officer for Washington Township. Previously, he served as a staff member in the Pennsylvania Senate and U.S. House of Representatives. In addition, Reichard was an elected Washington Township Supervisor, having served as chairman of the board. Reichard is also committed to his community through the various organizations he serves including Waynesboro Community Human and Services Council, Waynesboro Beneficial Fund, Chairman of the Franklin County Council of Governments, Franklin County Farm Bureau, Franklin County Republican Committee (past treasurer), and has served in various leadership roles with St. Mary’s Episcopal Church. Through his public service and community involvement, Reichard has seen firsthand how government does and does not work for taxpayers.

“I will champion the strong, conservative values of our community in Harrisburg, and make certain that the 90th district becomes an even better place to live, work, and raise a family.” To learn more about his campaign, please visit
