Representative in the General Assembly – 52nd Legislative District

For the 52nd Legislative District. Ryan James Warner and Harry Young Cochran will secure their party’s nominations for the Republican and Democratic parties respectively for the 52nd District in the General Election in the fall.

Local races include one with incumbent facing no opposition, another with primary challenge

Pennsylvania’s 2020 primary election is less than 10 weeks away, and according to information on the Department of State’s database, all U.S. Congress and state legislative races in Fayette and Greene counties and the mid-Mon Valley portions of Washington and Westmoreland counties have both Democratic and Republican candidates.

Except one.

In the 51st Legislative District, comprised of parts of Fayette and Somerset counties, state Rep. Matt Dowling, R-Uniontown, faces no opposition in his quest for a third term, having defeated former state Rep. Tim Mahoney, D-South Union Township, in 2016 and 2018.

State Rep. Ryan Warner, R-Perryopolis, will seek a fourth term in the 52nd Legislative District, which consists of parts of Fayette and Westmoreland counties. Harry Young Cochran of Connellsville, a Democrat, filed paperwork to challenge him in the fall.

In the 49th Legislative District, incumbent state Rep. Bud Cook, R-West Pike Run Township, is seeking a third term but will face a primary challenge from fellow Republican Tony Bottino Jr. of Carroll Township. Democrat Randy Barli of Coal Center also filed.

State Rep. Pam Snyder, a Democrat from Morgan Township, is seeking a fifth term in the 50th Legislative District and appears poised to face Republican Larry W. Yost II of Dunkard Township in the fall. That district encompasses small parts of Fayette and Washington counties in addition to all of Greene County.

In the 14th Congressional District, U.S. Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-Peters Township, will have an autumn opponent in Democrat William A. Marx of Delmont. The district includes all of Fayette, Greene and Washington counties, plus much of Westmoreland County.

The primary is April 28.

 

Candidates for Congress and the Pennsylvania Legislature run for two-year terms.

Also on the ballot along with president and statewide row office are many candidates vying to be chosen as delegates or alternates to Democratic and Republican Party presidential nominating conventions.

Warner announces re-election bid for state House of Representatives

Rep. Ryan Warner (R-52) announced Tuesday that he will seek re-election to the State House of Representatives to continue his work of protecting taxpayers, fighting for jobs and and reforming state government.

Warner is known for providing local residents with a strong conservative voice in state government and is seeking the Republican nomination in the April Primary Election.

“I was elected to put people before politics, and I have done that as state representative,” Warner said. “I am proud of my work to enable local families to keep more of their hard earned money; my fight for our hometown values; and my efforts to provide local seniors and residents with the services they need. We have made positive steps, but I know there is more that needs done for the hard-working men and women I serve. That is why I am running for re-election.”

Rep. Warner works every day to help keep families safe. He was the prime sponsor of the law that expands availability of lifesaving EpiPens and improves access to clinical trials for cancer patients.

“One of the most basic responsibilities of state government is to keep people safe,” Warner said. “This law will save lives and provide greater access to potentially life-saving treatment for more Pennsylvanians.”

In the House, Warner is respected for being a commonsense, conservative legislator who knows that residents cannot afford higher taxes, especially when the majority of these tax dollars go to Philadelphia instead of Fayette or Westmoreland counties.

He was the prime sponsor of a Constitutional Amendment to provide reasonable spending limits and a performance based budgeting bill that became law. Warner is also part of a bipartisan group of reform legislators who continue to work for a responsible budget process.

“Governor Wolf continues to propose higher taxes in order to support bigger, more expensive government,” Warner said. “I know there are better ways to balance the budget. That is why I fought for strong measures to stop welfare fraud and abuse to ensure those most in need receive help while working to reduce costs. During the budget process, I will continue to side with hard- working taxpayers by opposing Governor Wolf’s excessive tax and spend plans.”

Warner has voted to pass budgets that were fiscally responsible, focused spending on his constituents priorities and did not raise taxes.

In fact, the budget proposals he has supported provided additional funding for education and important programs that would benefit local residents, seniors and children.

Warner has also worked to secure funding to improve school safety and to refocus education on teaching children the important skills they need to succeed, rather than teaching to a test.

“As the father of two children, I support our public school system and the teachers who work hard to help prepare students to succeed after graduation,” Warner said. “That is why I supported the recent budget that provided record funds for our schools and children while holding overall state spending to less than the rate of inflation. I understand that state budgets must be effective and must be affordable to the taxpayers who fund our Commonwealth.”

Warner is a proven fiscal conservative committed to making Pennsylvania more business-friendly, and to supporting the energy and coal industries, which have a new friend in the Trump Administration.

As representative, he has opposed irresponsible federal and state policies in order to keep the job and to grow the economy to create new local jobs.

Warner has promoted the responsible development of Marcellus Shale natural gas without eliminating the impact fee, which has delivered millions of dollars for local improvements.

“The people of Fayette and Westmoreland counties have told me repeatedly that now is not the time for broadbased tax increases,” Warner said. “They want responsible fiscal leadership that cuts wasteful government spending, fosters sustainable job growth and forces government to live within its means like our families must do.”

Warner has also been an effective legislator who is fighting for his constituents values in Harrisburg.

He was proud to have both of his bipartisan bills to cut government red tape and to provide tax credits to local volunteer firefighters and EMS workers signed into law.

Warner has introduced commonsense legislation, including bills to make English the official language of Pennsylvania and to stop welfare fraud while supporting efforts to reduce the size of the legislature to save tax dollars.

He co-sponsored bills to protect pro-life, pro-Second Amendment and pro-family values. Warner has also put workers first by supporting efforts to deny public benefits to illegal immigrants.

Ryan and his wife Leslie reside in Perryopolis where they are raising their two children Paloma and Ben. They are members of St. John the Baptist Parish.

He has deep family roots in the local community and is an avid hunter and sportsman. The 52nd District includes portions of Fayette and Westmoreland counties.

Rep. Warner announces re-election bid for state House

Rep. Ryan Warner (R-52nd) announced that he will seek re-election to the State House of Representatives to continue his work of protecting taxpayers, fighting for jobs and values and reforming state government.

Warner is serving his second term and is known for providing local residents with a strong voice in state government.

“I was elected to put people before politics, and I have done that as state representative,” Warner said. “I am proud of my work to enable local families to keep more of their hard earn money; my fight for our hometown values; and my efforts to provide local seniors and residents with the services they need. We have made positive steps, but I know there is more that needs done for the hard-working men and women I serve. That is why I am running for re-election.” Warner continues to lead on reforming state government. During his first two terms in office, he has honored his promise to refuse the costly per diems, state car and state pension. Warner was also one of the few House members who did not accept a paycheck during the extended 2015 budget impasse.

“I grew up in a blue collar household,” Warner said. “So when I ran for election, I promised that I would continue to live like the residents I serve. That’s why I refused the costly perks and have worked so hard to reform the system to better protect taxpayers.”

In the House, Warner is respected for being a common sense legislator who knows that residents cannot afford higher taxes, especially when the majority of these tax dollars go to Philadelphia instead of Fayette or Westmoreland counties. He was a leading supporter of a Constitutional Amendment to provide reasonable spending limits, performance-based budgeting legislation that became law and is part of a bipartisan group of reform legislators who continue to work for a responsible budget process.

“Gov. Wolf continues to propose higher taxes in order to support bigger, more expensive government,” Warner said. “I know there are better ways to balance the budget. That is why I fought for strong measures to stop welfare fraud and abuse to ensure those most in need receive help while helping to reduce costs. During the budget process, I will continue to side with hard-working taxpayers by opposing Gov. Wolf’s excessive tax and spend plans.”

Warner has voted to pass budgets that were fiscally responsible, focused spending on priorities and did not raise taxes. In fact, the budget proposals he has supported provided additional funding for education and important programs that would benefit local residents, seniors and children. Warner has also worked to refocus education on teaching children the important skills they need for success, rather than teaching to a test.

“As the father of two children, I support our public school system and the teachers who work hard to help provide our kids with the skills they need to succeed after graduation,” Warner said. “That is why I supported budgets in the House that provided record funds for our schools. However, I also understand that a quality education is not just about money and must be affordable to property taxpayers. That is why I supported a historic proposal to reform the pension system, which is a driving cost to governments at all levels, but especially for school districts.”

Warner is a proven fiscal conservative committed to making Pennsylvania more business-friendly and to supporting our energy and coal industries, which have a new friend in the Trump administration. As representative, he has opposed irresponsible federal and state policies in order to keep the jobs we have and to grow the economy to create new local jobs. Warner has promoted the responsible development of Marcellus Shale natural gas without eliminating the impact fee, which has delivered millions of dollars for local improvements.

“The people of Fayette and Westmoreland counties have told me repeatedly that now is not the time for broad-based tax increases,” Warner said. “They want responsible fiscal leadership that cuts wasteful government spending, fosters sustainable job growth and forces government to live within its means like our families must do.”

Born and raised here, Ryan learned the importance of hard work, faith, family and service to others from his family. His grandfathers and their families were trusted members of our community. Charles Warner was a local farmer, and John Marks was in real estate. His father, Jim, owns and operates JTE Logging. His mother, Annette, is a branch manager at PNC Bank.

Throughout his life, Warner has helped his father with the family’s logging business. He began in high school by stacking, sorting and cutting lumber before working his way up to operating and maintaining the sawmill machinery and heavy equipment.

Warner attended Frazier High School and graduated from Penn State University. Following college, he went to work for Siemens Industry in Westmoreland County as a project controller. As a result of a tough economy, Siemens reduced its workforce and Warner was one of those who were let go after nearly five years on the job.

“My story is like many other western Pennsylvanians,” Warner said. “As state representative, I never forget the importance of providing people with a reliable safety net and effective job retraining programs when needed so they can get back to work supporting their families. I work hard every day to keep the jobs we have and to grow our economy to create new local jobs.”

Warner has also been an effective legislator who is fighting for our values in Harrisburg. His bipartisan legislation to cut government red tape was signed into law just five months after he took office. He has introduced common sense legislation including bills to make English the official language of Pennsylvania, provide tax credits to our volunteer firefighters and EMS workers and to stop wasteful government spending.

Warner co-sponsored bills to protect pro-life, pro-Second Amendment and pro-family values. He has also put workers first by supporting efforts to deny public benefits to illegal immigrants. Ryan and his wife Leslie reside in Perryopolis where they are raising their two children, Paloma and Ben. They are members of St. John the Baptist Parish. He has deep family roots in our community and is an avid hunter and sportsman.

The 52nd District includes portions of Fayette and Westmoreland counties. Warner is seeking the Republican nomination in the May primary election.

Keedy announces run for state office

Connellsville City Councilman, small business owner and substitute teacher Ethan Keedy is seeking the Democratic nomination for state representative in the 52nd Legislative District.

The 52nd District includes portions of Fayette and Westmoreland counties and is currently represented by Republican Ryan Warner.

Keedy said he wants to use his experience to fight for local values in Harrisburg.

“Our local leadership continues to borrow money to fund our state budget, and allow an out of control property tax system to disproportionately burden our community,” Keedy said of his inspiration to run. “We must fight for property tax reduction and sustainable revenue sources, proper funding of our schools and government, and good paying jobs for our working families.”

Keedy, who was elected to Connellsville City Council in 2015, serves as the council’s director of finance. According to Keedy, in his two years in that position, he has worked to turn a $680,000 deficit into a surplus, with revenue available for needed infrastructure improvements without a tax increase or layoffs.

“We achieved a surplus through normal family economics and fiscal responsibility. When you sit around and do your budget with your wife, you don’t plan to borrow money against pretend money you might have in the future— Harrisburg must stop this,” Keedy argues of the current state of fiscal policy in Harrisburg.

Keedy said there has been too much focus by local legislators on other areas of the state, and not on the region represented.

“I want to put the 52nd District on the map,” Keedy said of infrastructure investment. “We must put the money and resources into growing out local economy, and fighting for continued small business growth and jobs growth in this region and I know our current leadership doesn’t do this”.

Having lost his father to the opioid epidemic, Keedy also believes Harrisburg is only paying lip service to our community’s heroin problem during election time. He knows we as a community must fight against the opioid epidemic 365 days a year— not just during election season.

“I lost my father, and have seen so many promising lives stopped short in our community because our leaders in Harrisburg only talk the talk. Now is the time for strong investments in addiction treatment, counseling services, and rehabilitation,” Keedy said.

Keedy is a lifelong resident of the 52nd Legislative District. He is the owner of Keedy’s Pizzeria and looks to expand other small businesses and economic development in the district. He lives in Connellsville with his wife, Chelsea.

The 52nd District includes the city of Connellsville, Bullskin, Connellsville, Dunbar, Lower Tyrone, Menallen, North Union, Perry, Saltlick, and Upper Tyrone township and Dawson, Dunbar, Everson, Perryopolis, Seven Springs, South Connellsville, and Vanderbilt boroughs in Fayette County. It also includes portions of East Huntingdon Township, Bessemer, Whites and Scottdale in Westmoreland County.
