HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Paul Rizzo is the Libertarian candidate for the 15th Congressional District, which includes all of Lehigh County and parts of Berks County, Dauphin County, Lebanon County, and Northampton County.
abc27 News is making free airtime available to candidates. The following is the full text of Rizzo’s statement:
“Hello, my name is Paul Rizzo and I am challenging incumbent Charlie Dent for Congress.
Dent has had 12 years in office, and his way isn’t working. Now it’s time to try something new like balanced budgets and the protecting your civil liberties.
I am running as a third-party candidate because I don’t want to be part of the broken system in Washington. I am self-funding my campaign because I believe we need to keep money out of politics to reassure the people that their elected officials are not compromised.
As an independent Libertarian, I would have the ability to cross party lines in whichever direction works best to serve the people of my district.
This year’s election, when you go to cast your vote, think of this: you can vote for the illusion of choice when voting for the establishment or you can vote for real change.
I’m Paul Rizzo, and I humbly ask for your vote this November 8th.”
