ABC27 News is making free airtime available to candidates. The following is the full-text of Mentzer’s statement, as prepared:
“I am Representative Steve Mentzer, Republican candidate for the 97th District. When I ran for office four years ago, I knew you were fed up and had enough of partisan bickering and wasteful spending. I saw this as an opportunity to work together to find common sense solutions to our problems.
For instance: We passed a law allowing Pennsylvania to process government checks for other states — which has the potential to generate millions of dollars in income for PA.
And — we are working on job promoting legislation by reforming an archaic and job killing labor law.
And — we stopped the Governor from raising our taxes,
Working across the divide has given us a great opportunity
Imagine…Imagine what we can accomplish if we all continue working together.”
