The Constitution Party of PA, CPPA, held its spring committee meeting on Saturday, March 18, 2023 at the Ramada Inn in Clarion. Bob Goodrich, the party Chairman lead a brief business meeting and then addressed committee members and guest who were in attendance.
One of the goals for the Constitution Party of PA is to help individual members of the party get elected to public office, such as County Commissioners, School Board Members, and other local county and state offices up for election.
