LG: Meuser Plans a Run for Lieutenant Governor
“I am doing my due diligence and planning,” Meuser said in an interview with PoliticsPA.
“The Republican Party and the people of Pennsylvania created great opportunity and potential that cannot be maximized with the current Governor.”
Meuser believes his experience at the Department of Revenue will help him in his run for the LG’s office.
“We lowered taxes by $1 billion and increased revenue by $3 billion by transforming the department from a tax collection agency to a taxpayer advocacy department.”
Meuser says that he understands the role of the LG and the is willing to work with whoever the Republican nominee is.
Before he was Revenue Secretary, he was the president of Pride Mobility, a motorized wheelchair manufacturer in the Wilkes-Barre area. He also ran for the Republican nomination in the 10th Congressional District in 2008, losing to Chris Hackett in the primary.
Meuser is the first candidate to publicly express an interest in the position. Former state Rep. Gordon Denlinger (R-Lancaster) is also rumored to be considering a run.
