State Senate Candidate Rich Sterner Injured in Gettysburg

Editor’s Note: An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that the incident occurred on the Gettysburg Square. The incident occurred on Breckenridge St. in Gettysburg.

Listen to an interview with candidate Sterner

Local candidate for the 33rd State Senate District Rich Sterner has reported on Facebook that he was pushed and injured during a Black Lives Matter march yesterday afternoon.

Sterner said:

“Around 2:40 p.m. I was trying to get between a very angry man (cursing and yelling) trying to disrupt a peaceful BLM march I was participating in. This man suddenly and forcefully pushed me backwards. I fell requiring a few minor repairs at Gettysburg Hospital. The man was arrested. The Gettysburg Police responded and did a good job. I am resting with my family tonight and ready to campaign in Chambersburg tomorrow! ???? ALWAYS FORWARD!”
