Richard Flarend, candidate for the 79th general assembly seat, is committed to seeking solutions to the major issues facing this area, be it public education, infrastructure, energy or fire fighting equipment.
He will accept ideas that work for the majority, whether it be from Democrats or Republicans or hopefully a compromise of the two.
He believes in balance between government spending and the revenue needed to solve problems.
He would never say, as his opponent has, "each of us has a moral obligation to everywhere and always oppose government spending.
This election presents the voters with a clear choice between extremism and reason, between a candidate devoted to serving an ideology and one who wants to serve the needs of this area.
John McGinnis wants to go to Harrisburg to make a point. Richard Flarend wants your vote to work for you.
