from Cozzone for PA, 11/10/17 (Commissioner Cozzone is a candidate for Lieutenant GTovernor of PA this year)
What an Election Day for Democrats! Congratulations to all the wonderful candidates who ran for judicial, county and local offices in 2017. Whether they scored truly historic victories like we saw in Chester County, or fought the good fight for our progressive values but fell short, every candidate deserves our thanks.
Clearly, voters are energized because they are not happy. But it’s not just Donald Trump. Voters also don’t like the fact that it took our Republican Legislature months past the budget deadline, just to pass an irresponsible revenue package that uses more borrowing and phantom revenue to balance. That’s why it’s critical that we keep the momentum going to bring about change in Harrisburg next year.
I’m so pleased to announce that my campaign for Lt. Governor is building momentum too. Today, we are announcing another round of endorsements from County Commissioner Jeff Eggleston (Warren County), County Commissioner Harlan Shober (Washington County), fmr. County Commissioner Suzanne McCool (Monroe County) and State Representative John Galloway (Bucks County). They join previous endorsements from Chester, Bucks, Berks, Somerset, Bradford and Butler Counties. Commissioner Shober, who is the immediate past President of the County Commissioners Association of PA, had this to say about my candidacy:
“Kathi Cozzone understands how government can work for its citizens. As Commissioners, we see firsthand how decisions made in Harrisburg affect our counties’ ability to improve the lives of our constituents in need and improve the quality of life for all. If Kathi is elected Lt. Governor, she will bring that deep understanding to a state government that is often badly out of touch with the work done by county and local governments. Voters in PA will be well-served to elect her, and legislators in Harrisburg would be wise to listen to her input when she gets there. That’s why I’m endorsing Kathi Cozzone for Lt. Governor.”
— Harlan Shober, Washington County Commissioner
