PA-10: Eugene DePasquale (D)
PROFILE

October 31, 2020 by TWN Staff

About DePasquale:

Eugene DePasquale has dedicated his public service to tirelessly fighting for working people, senior citizens, and the most vulnerable.

He grew up in a typical working-class family. When he wasn’t in school, he waited tables or washed dishes at the family’s neighborhood restaurant. What little time was left he spent on the courts and fields playing basketball, football and baseball.

At home, he was the oldest of three siblings. His dad, a Vietnam veteran, was shot during the war and at times struggled with addiction to painkillers. His mother worked at the restaurant to provide for the family and Eugene pitched-in at home to help his brothers.

Things grew more challenging in high school when his youngest brother, Anthony, was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy and his family was struggling.

Despite the adversity, Eugene worked his way through and excelled in college, graduating with a bachelor of arts from College of Wooster, a master’s of Public Administration from the University of Pittsburgh, and a J.D. from Widener School of Law.

His upbringing and the people he grew-up around, shaped his life and provided him direction after college and law school. He worked at a non-profit that helped young people with mental and physical disabilities and then embarked on a public service career.

Now he is running for Congress to focus on the issues that are most important to people in Pennsylvania’s 10th Congressional District.
