SCOLLO FOR CONGRESS
.Phil Scollo, 56, a resident of Dingman Township, Pike County, announces his intention to seek the Democratic Party nomination to run for Congress in the 10th District. The decision comes on the heels of last week’s Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruling that quashed proposed redistricting and, with it, Mr. Scollo’s plan to run for the Pennsylvania Assembly, in the 139th District, against a heretofore unchallenged incumbent. “Opportunity often follows disappointment in life”, Mr. Scollo observed. “In these unprecedented times, the residents of the 10th Congressional District certainly deserve a choice.”
Mr. Scollo, a native New Yorker, moved to the Milord area, with wife, Karen and two of his three children in 1998. A summa cum laude graduate of St. John’s University, he holds a B.S. in Government and Politics. A former insurance industry executive and currently a management consultant, Mr. Scollo believes his business experience and problem solving skills will transfer neatly to public service. Before the April Primary, he vows to visit every county of Pennsylvania’s largest Congressional District, meet with the residents and listen to truly understand their concerns.
“With the Pennsylvania economy in shambles and so many hurting, I promise to work singularly and tirelessly, and without concern for the divisive partisanship that has rendered government impotent in the eyes of most people,” Mr. Scollo exclaimed.
