Gregory to seek third House term


HOLLIDAYSBURG — Jim Gregory will seek the Republican nomination for the 80th District State House seat for a third term.

Gregory, a Republican, has been an advocate for victims of child sexual abuse. He has sponsored a constitutional amendment that would allow for victims to sue their abusers after the statute of limitations expires, according to a press release.

That measure has passed the Legislature twice; however, it must be considered a third time next year due to an error by Gov. Tom Wolf’s administration in failing to properly advertise the amendment.

Gregory said he will continue this fight next year to ensure that all victims receive the justice they rightly deserve.

He said his advocacy will also continue to focus on election integrity, protecting personal freedoms, agriculture improvements for farm families, improving conditions for veterans and education reform allowing for more choice for parents of the 80th District.

He also said he will continue to lend his knowledge of addiction issues in the statewide fight against overdose deaths.

Gregory, a member of the NRA, is a staunch supporter of the 2nd Amendment and has an A rating from the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation for his work to protect the unborn.

Gregory was also rewarded with an A rating (93%) on the Pennsylvania Taxpayer report card and has been a vocal opponent of Wolf’s tax and spending proposals.

“We have much work to do in ensuring our election integrity and making sure state government is working for the people of this commonwealth,” Gregory said in a statement. “I look forward to continuing to talk to the voters of the 80th District over the next several months.”
