Dear Editor:

I am pleased to introduce myself, and I would be honored to earn your support to become the next State Representative in the 193rd District.

As a dedicated family man, local businessperson and community leader, I will stand for the values and integrity of the people of Pennsylvania. I am determined to bring energy and enthusiasm to the residents of the 193rd District.

First and foremost, I am committed to bringing my fiscal responsibility to Harrisburg to protect the hardworking families of the Commonwealth. Being raised in a blue-collar family, working my way through college and supporting my young family, I appreciate the importance of keeping more money in taxpayers’ wallets. The residents of Pennsylvania surely know how to spend their hard-earned money better than Harrisburg.

I currently provide legal advice at Becker & Strausbaugh, P.C. to families, veterans, farmers, seniors, non-profits and small businesses on a wide array of legal matters in Adams, Cumberland and York Counties.

In addition, I am committed to my community through the various organizations I serve including leadership roles with the East Berlin Community Center, Rotary Club, Chamber of Commerce and Junior Achievement. Through my legal experience and community involvement, I have seen firsthand how government does and does not work for taxpayers.

As your State Representative, you can trust me to use my proven experience and conservative values to stand up for you in Harrisburg. I will defend the sanctity of human life and safeguard our 2nd Amendment rights. I will also fight to lower taxes for property owners and businesses, reduce the amount of government intrusion in our daily lives and strengthen our education system so that we may fully empower our children and ready them for the future.
