Schmitt has never forgotten his roots

In the upcoming primary election, we will vote for a new Republican candidate for the 79th District state representative.

Our area needs a representative who is willing to go to Harrisburg to advocate hard and smart for the people of the 79th District.

Lou Schmitt is the person to do the job. He grew up here in Altoona and has never forgotten the friends and neighbors who helped shape the man he is today. He consistently demonstrates his respect for others.

I know he cares deeply about the happiness and prosperity of the people who live in this great area of Pennsylvania. Schmitt strongly supports conservative values, and is a sincere advocate for law enforcement and veterans.

No one will work harder for us. He is the person we need to represent us in Harrisburg. I respectfully request you join me in voting for Lou Schmitt on May 15.
