What we stand for
We believe in fiscally responsible and socially responsive governance. A strong commitment to integrity and discipline guides our heads; the needs of our constituents guide our hearts.
Staunch Republican and native of Pennsylvania, Jimmy Stewart, was a highly decorated American general in the United States Air Force and Oscar-winning actor who was the first to leave Hollywood to enlist during the Second World War. He is remembered for his distinctive drawl and down-to-earth persona in many films that are now considered to be classics. He is most famous for his portrayal of a decent, American middle-class man struggling with a crisis. What would he say and what would he do if he were with us today? We must draw strength from those that came before us and follow in their footsteps to build a brighter, more prosperous future.
Our Commitment to you:
To accomplish this we must to a new era of politics, one built on longterm relationships and and a fuller understanding of our community's needs, not on the transactional relationship that for too long has been the common practice of politics. To this end we ask that you join us in our effort to to bring about change to a stagnant political environment that puts the interests of a few above those of many. After all, it was in our great Commonwealth of Pennsylvania that one of the greatest Republicans in our nation's history, Abraham Lincoln, uttered these famous words at the Gettysburg Address:
"that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
-Abraham Lincon, November 19th, 1863
Our guiding principles stem from the very first word's of this great State's Constitution:
WE, the people of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, grateful to Almighty God for the blessings of civil and religious liberty, and humbly invoking His guidance, do ordain and establish this Constitution.
