PennPatriot Supports Casey Roncaglione, Democratic Candidate 164th District Pennsylvania House

Very rarely in the game of politics does one issue trump every other issue during an election. But, thanks to the pay raise one issue has reached this elite status. That issue is state government reform.

Why is reform so important? All you have to do is look the large amounts of gambling money that has poored into Harrisburg from gambling lobbyists, look at the way gambling and the pay raise was pushed through the state legislature and look at the late night backroom deals that has led our state government down the path of greed and corruption. After examining what has been going on in Harrisburg over the past three years, it's not hard to realize just what is at stake and why change is so important in this upcoming November election.

By pledging to advance the ideas of reform in Pennsylvania one enters a very new and exciting world. A world that is founded on values, ideas and friendships instead of party partisanship, greed and lobbyists. It is a world that crosses party lines and where a conversation on a blog or in an email could lead to new ideas or end up becoming a political movement. Yes reform is exiciting in Pennsylvania.

This is why I am pledging my support to Democratic Candidate for the 164th District State House of Representatives,
Casey Roncaglione. Casey understands what is at stake in this election and is dedicated to advancing the state government reforms layed out in Democracy Rising's Roadmap for Reform. Casey is challenging a tough Republican RINO, Rep. Mario Civera. Civera voted for the pay raise and had no intention of returning the pay raise after it was repealed. It is time for out of touch republican and democratic state legislators to get their walking papers from the voters this November.

Politics should be about doing the right thing. Casey has pledge to do the right thing as your state legislator. I would encourage the voters of the 164th District to step up and do the right thing by voting for Casey Roncaglione this November.

Our message to the people of Pennsylvania is simple. Lets work together to knock the greedy lobbyists, political pundits and power hungary politicians out of our state government.
