Charlie Dent's career in elective office began with his service in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and Pennsylvania Senate.  He was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2004 and was re-elected six times.

While in Congress, he served on the Appropriations Committee and chaired the House Ethics Committee.  He also co-chaired the Tuesday Group, a caucus of moderate Republicans dedicated to promoting fiscal responsibility, personal independence and a strong national defense, and worked to give voice to what he has called "the sensible center."

He resigned and left office in the Spring of 2018 and currently serves as a Senior Policy Advisor at the law firm of DLA Piper.  He also is regularly featured on cable television as a political analyst and is seen by many as a voice of reason in these highly partisan times.

This lecture is free and open-to-the-public.

Refreshments will be served.
