10th CD candidates

No surprise that Tom Marino is running for reelection. His Democratic opponent will be Phil Scollo in the fall. Moran didn't make the ballot.

Businessman Phil Scollo Files to Face Rep. Marino

Dingman Township, PA - Pike County businessman Phil Scollo filed his nominating petitions in Harrisburg today and is expected to face U.S. Representative Tom Marino in the November general election. No other Democratic candidates are expected to file.

"For too long, we’ve seen a system that is rigged against the little guy," said Scollo. "I'm in this race because we need someone in Washington fighting for the rest of us. Republicans, Independents, and Democrats alike are angry at Washington."

"I'm running for Congress to represent the seniors who live on limited incomes and the families who work hard to make ends meet. The system hasn't been working for most Americans—regardless of political party—for far too long."

A Pike County businessman, Phil Scollo lives in Dingman Township with his wife, Karen, and their three children. After a long career in the insurance industry, Scollo now owns and operates a business-consulting firm in Milford, PA. A summa cum laude graduate of St. John’s University, he holds a B.S. in Government and Politics.

Williamsport, PA – Congressman Tom Marino announced today that he will seek a second term as United States Representative for the 10th Congressional District. Marino issued the following statement:

“When I ran for Congress in 2010, I make a commitment to do my part to cut government spending, repeal the President's so-called "Affordable Care Act," downsize Washington , DC , and keep taxes low. I have kept my promises, but the simple truth is that there is much more work to do.

I voted to cut more than 31 billion dollars in total discretionary spending, introduced legislation to freeze federal government employment, and cut my own office budget by 5 percent. I have consistently supported legislation to reduce bureaucratic red tape and fought to keep taxes low. I have also co-sponsored a bill to prohibit tax dollars from being used on abortion and supported legislation to eliminate taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood.

The people of Pennsylvania 's 10th Congressional District deserve a Representative who will continue to fight for hardworking taxpayers. Our nation faces great challenges at home and abroad. I will continue to fight for common sense solutions that will maintain a strong national defense, reduce the debt and deficit, eliminate job-destroying regulations, and keep the commitment we have made to senior citizens and our veterans.”

In Congress, Tom Marino serves on the Judiciary, Homeland Security, and Foreign Affairs Committees. Tom Marino and his wife, Edie, have two children, Chloe, 16 and Victor, 12. They live in Cogan Station, Lycoming County .
