Paul Mango, Republican gubernatorial candidate, coming to Springdale Twp. diner Wednesday
Gubernatorial hopeful Paul Mango is planning to grab lunch at David's Diner in Springdale Township on Wednesday.
Mango, 59, an Army veteran and retired health care executive from Pine Township, is one of three Republicans seeking his party's nod to face off against Gov. Tom Wolf in November.
Spokesman Matthew Beynon said Mango will be visiting the diner in order to speak with customers about the issues facing Southwest Pennsylvania.
Additionally, Beynon said that the diner, which opened along Freeport Road in 2012, is owned by a veteran, the kind of business that is “very near and dear to (Mango's) heart.”
The diner's owner, David Speer, is an Iraq War veteran and Purple Heart recipient.
Speer could not be reached for comment Tuesday.
Attorney Laura Ellsworth, 59, of Sewickley, and state Sen. Scott Wagner, 62, of York, are running against Mango in the May 15 Republican primary.
