CLARKS SUMMIT (12.08.09) State Representative Sam Rohrer (R-Berks), who recently declared his candidacy for the 2010 Republican Gubernatorial nomination, will campaign in Clarks Summit this week for his first, post-announcement campaign stop. Former area lawmaker Jerry Birmelin (R-Wayne) who represented Wayne, Pike and Monroe counties in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives will publicly endorse Rohrer at the “Pennsylvania Townhall” event.
At Thursday night’s Townhall, Rohrer will highlight plans to remove roadblocks to job creation, eliminate school property taxes and reduce state government taxes and spending. His remarks will center on what he labels the “5 Biggest Challenges” for Pennsylvania’s next governor.
The son of a union steelworker, Rohrer has been a vocal advocate for issues impacting working families. By promoting choice in education, leading the fight against Democratic and Republican tax and spending hikes and crafting landmark legislation to eliminate school property taxes, he’s earned broad base support from statewide taxpayer groups.
During his tenure on the House Education Committee, Sam authored the historic Education Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) scholarship. To date, some 33,000 Pennsylvania students have been empowered to attend private or enhanced public school programs because of the initiative.
