Feb 2011 - Present
Senate of Pennsylvania
I’ve spent my career fighting for families throughout our Commonwealth, especially to protect their hard-earned tax dollars and make government programs work the way they're supposed to. I'm eager to use my experience and skills to represent Dauphin and York counties in the Senate of Pennsylvania. My focus every day in the Senate will be creating jobs, strengthening public education, keeping taxes as low as possible, and ending politics as usual in Harrisburg. I am convinced that we can win this election and bring the real, fundamental change that state government so desperately needs. But changing a broken system won't be easy, so I need your help. Please join our campaign today. Facebook: www.facebook.com/RobTeplitzforStateSenate Twitter: @RobTeplitz Contribute securely online: www.actblue.com/page/robteplitz
