Scott Wagner today released a detailed, substantive plan to improve K-12 education policy in Pennsylvania. Wagner’s plan will increase education funding by over $1 billion annually (without raising taxes) so that all districts will have the resources they need to succeed, will encourage the retooling and reinventing of curriculum so that all students are prepared to meet the needs of the modern workforce and will put in place the innovative programs necessary to obtain the best and brightest teachers.
SCOTT WAGNER ON THE PLAN
“In my administration your zip code won’t determine your success. I’m committed to record investments in education so that every child has access to opportunity, every parent has peace of mind knowing their child has a chance to learn, every teacher has the tools they need and every taxpayer knows we are doing it at a price they can afford.”
JEFF BARTOS ON THE PLAN
“Governor Wolf has failed Pennsylvania’s public school students and parents. For three straight years, he called for tax increase after tax increase while refusing to authorize any education funding increases. The money the Republican legislature did put into education was swallowed up by pension payments and did not help a single student. Scott and I believe Pennsylvania deserves better. Rather than cutting funding from 70 percent of schools like Governor Wolf wants to do, we have a plan give more resources to all of our students without raising taxes.”
Many thanks to those of you who came this morn to meet the Congressman and be part of the American political process. Congressman Barletta spoke of his desire to be able to serve his country more in the Capacity of a US Senator, than as a Congressman. And added that he is running because President Trump asked him to, He came in a large “Barletta” bus and brought his dog Reilly along!
Dobbin House personnel were wonderful! Thanks to Ginny Martin. Liz Poje Glenn, Jacquie Arnold, Jim Martin, John Longanecker, and Kathy Butler for all their help!
It was a busy week for the Barletta Team! Thank you to everyone who made the launch of the “Red, White, and Lou” statewide bus tour such a success. Below please find a campaign update and corresponding message points for the coming week. As always, please do not hesitate to be in touch if we can be of assistance with any matter! – Matt
Barletta for Senate Weekly Message Points
Red, White, and LOU! The Barletta for Senate statewide bus tour kicks off with huge crowds and fantastic media exposure.
Following up on the momentum of President Trump and Vice President Pence’s campaign stops in Pennsylvania, Lou launched his statewide bus tour on Monday, August 6th: The “Red, White, and Lou” Tour.
This past week, the Red, White, and Lou tour stopped in: Hazleton, Wescoville, Annville, Gettysburg, Irwin, Butler, Pittsburgh, Beaver, New Castle, Uniontown, Indiana, and Huntingdon. The crowds greeting Lou were tremendous… in Gettysburg over 100 enthusiastic Lou supporters crowded into the historic Dobbin House at 10am on a Tuesday!
Next week, the Red, White, and Lou tour will continue with stops in Lewisburg, Altoona, Pittsburgh, Wilkes-Barre, Johnstown, Tamaqua, Chambersburg, Lancaster, and State College. More stops will be added in the coming days. If you have any questions or are interested in supporting the tour, we would love you to hear from you. We need all of your support to make Lou’s tour a success.
Lou’s tour received tremendous media attention. Below is just a sampling of the press Lou received while traveling across the Commonwealth. We’d encourage you to post these articles to your social media accounts to get Lou’s message out to an even wider audience:
The Red, White, and Lou tour’s success has clearly gotten in Bob Casey’s head. Rather than sending surrogates to bracket Lou’s events, Casey himself showed up in Fayette County with a hastily arranged roundtable event to try and stop Lou’s momentum. In the end, Casey just looked foolish in making false statements to KDKA’s Jon Delano in Pittsburgh about Lou’s record on healthcare that were quickly refuted.
