by Eric Berger, Jewish Exponent, 10/29/2014 2:32 PM

State Democratic and Republican leaders agree: If the Democrats are able to make gains in the Republican-dominated Pennsylvania state legislature this election, it will be in large part because of the gubernatorial race.

“The potential for some coattails” exists, state Rep. Dan Frankel, the Pittsburgh lawmaker and chair of the Democratic caucus, said, referring to the potential boost Democrat Tom Wolf could give to local candidates. “Even though the national climate for Democrats is not particularly favorable, the climate here in Pennsylvania is pretty good.”…

by SpringCityPADem, DailyKos, 10/26/14

Ann Schott (district 13) on education

excerpt from Chris Barber, “Schott challenges Lawrence for 13th House seat,” Daily Local News, 10/28/14

…I am most passionate about the future of public education, specifically the funding of education. We need to fairly fund our schools, we need to get the best teachers in our schools and in turn we need to keep those who are dedicated to the profession.

156th District Q&A: Sandra Snyder

The Unionville Times, October 29, 2014

1. Why are you running?

I am running because as a mother of three young children I am very disgusted at the current state of our education system. I want there to be programs available to all students, and none should have to “pay to play” in our public school system. I truly believe that education is paramount, and that a good education is the main foundation upon which to help our children grow. …
