Bedford County native Dwight Winck announced Tuesday that he is considering tossing his hat into the ring and challenging state Sen. John Wozniak, D-Westmont, in the 2016 election.
Wozniak’s district covers Bedford, Cambria and part of Clearfield counties, including portions of the Philipsburg-Osceola Area School District.
Winck said he is a strong advocate of protecting religious liberty and is pro-life, pro-family and pro-Second Amendment. He also believes in returning the Pennsylvania legislators to part-time status.
“We have the largest full-time legislature in the country and one of the highest paid, and I think that needs to change,” he said. “We used to have a part-time legislature until 1968. If Texas doesn’t have a full-time legislature then why do we need one?”
