John Kane, the Democrat who ran a vicious campaign last fall for the 26th District State Senate Seat ultimately won by Republican Tom McGarrigle, has taken a position regarding the Aug. 4 special election for the 161st District Pennsylvania House Seat.
He is supporting the Republican nominee Paul Mullen as per the signs outside his home on Villanova Circle in Swarthmore.
Kane remains a D.
Now, why would a Democrat who ran on extreme liberal positions nine months ago now support the man the Republican Party picked to fill a vacated State House seat?
Has John Kane changed his thinking? Hardly. He does, however, appear confident that the GOP candidate supports those same extreme liberal positions and will keep the gravy flowing to benefit the special interests of which he is part.
Wonder how the official Democrat who worked so hard for Kane feels.
Anyway, the traditional Republican voter has a choice as do those Democrats who see their standard of living dropping and fear of the future rising.
Penn Delco School Director Lisa Esler is running a vigorous write-in campaign that is getting much traction.
Lisa’s reasons for running can be found in this “dear neighbor” letter:
My name is Lisa Esler and I am the WRITE-IN candidate for State Representative in the special election that will be held on August 4th. I am a wife, mother, grandmother, certified optician, and a school board director. Why am I doing this? Because in my role as a school board director, I have seen how Harrisburg has become tainted with special interest groups and lobbyists, leaving the taxpayer without representation.
If elected, I will be a Representative who speaks for the people in this district – not for the special interest groups with deep pockets who use money and power to stifle any meaningful reforms. As your voice, I will push hard for common sense solutions for the problems we face. For example, we have a looming pension crisis that drives your property taxes up every year and will cost taxpayers dearly for years to come. I want to join with the other like-minded legislators to work toward fixing that broken system.
I am not a career politician and do not intend to become one. I am not seeking this office to become wealthy on the backs of the taxpayers. If elected, I pledge not to take part in the pension system that is bankrupting you and our Commonwealth.
People have lost faith in their leaders and in the system. I hope I can restore some of that faith. You see my integrity and reputation mean a lot more to me than any political office.
Remember, I am not “endorsed” and therefore my name is not on the ballot. That is why I am asking you to WRITE-IN my name on the ballot. “How-To instructions” will be available at the polls on Election Day, Tuesday, August 4th.
I would be honored to have your support and your vote on August 4th.
If you have any questions or would like to help with my campaign, please call me at 484-995-1540.
Thank you in advance for your consideration.
