Norristown, PA – Norristown Area School Board President and Montgomery County resident Shae Ashe announced his candidacy for State Senate in the 17th District.
Shae Ashe graduated from Norristown Area High School in 2008 and earned his degree in Finance from Norfolk State University in 2014. While attending college, he interned for The Walt Disney Company which turned into a 5 year career with various divisions of the company in Florida and Pennsylvania. Returning to Norristown in 2013, Shae founded The Norristown Project, a community organization focused on community cleanups.
In 2017, Shae was elected as School Board Director for Norristown Area School District. One year later he was appointed as Board President and continues to serve today. One of his reasons for entering the race for State Senate in the 17th district is to represent the district with a fresh perspective. “Harrisburg needs more voices standing up for everyday Pennsylvanians,” says Shae Ashe. “If elected, I will bring fresh ideas to Harrisburg and press the gas on real results.”
The campaign announced an official kickoff fundraiser will take place in August in his hometown of Norristown. For more information and to receive the latest updates, visit VoteShae.com or follow Shae Ashe on facebook, Twitter, or Instagram @ShaeAshe.
