Dear voters: I want to express my sincere gratitude to everyone in the 24th Senatorial District who made the extra effort to cast a write-in vote for me in Montgomery, Bucks, and Berks Counties. I am so humbled by the outpouring of support! The count is not yet certified, but unofficially we received more than 500 write-in votes in Montgomery County alone, with another approximately 400 in Bucks and Berks. To secure my position on the ballot as the Democratic candidate for State Senate in the November 4 election, I needed at least 500 write-in votes total. You showed what we can do when we all pull together!
I am proud of my platform, which includes restoring funding for public education, placing a reasonable extraction tax on Marcellus Shale drillers, accepting the federal government’s offer to expand Medicaid for those who need it, creating jobs in Pennsylvania, and defending women’s rights. If you would like to learn more or contact us for any reason, please visit my campaign website at www.HansenforPAsenate.com.
We can all expect a spirited race this summer and fall. My Republican opposition’s coffers will undoubtedly be sloshing with oil company money.
Nevertheless, on November 4 we can pull together once again and elect Tom Wolf as Governor, Mike Stack as Lieutenant Governor, Jack Hansen as State Senator, and your local Democratic candidate as State Representative. Together we will set Pennsylvania on the right path for all of its citizens.
I ask for your vote on November 4, and I look forward to serving you as your next State Senator in 2015 and beyond.
Democratic Candidate for Pennsylvania Senator in the General Assembly District 24
