In memorium

Peter L. DeCoursey, a long-time Pennsylvania political reporter, died Wednesday at his parent’s home in Philadelphia after long battles against pancreatic and lung cancers. He was 52 years old.

DeCoursey served most recently as the bureau chief of Capitolwire.com and previously worked for the Harrisburg Patriot-News and the Reading Eagle.
