Letter to the editor | A conservative for governor

April 24, 2014 

Our current governor and Republican legislature have been asleep for far to long.

They campaigned on no new taxes, liquor store privatization, fixing the state pension plan, balancing the budget, lower taxes at the gas pump and eliminating the property tax.

Instead, we got higher gas prices due to a $2.4 billion “gas tax” and a governor who supports Common Core, an educational nightmare for anyone who wants their children to learn. A majority of Pennsylvania residents don’t want anything to do with this nationalization of school curriculum.

So, as Republicans, who wants a governor and legislature to fight for real, free-market, lower taxes and educational choices and who will stand up for true constitutional principles?

Help fire the first shot in this battle for a fight over the soul of the party at the ballot box May 20.

Vote for Bob Guzzardi as the Republican candidate for governor.
