Mark Aurand asserts that he is not a politician but rather a husband, dad and small business owner fighting for middle class Pennsylvanians in his first TV ad.
Aurand, however, lets others do most of the talking for him as citizens of the district criticized the Governor and Republican nominee State Rep. Mario Scavello for the recent gas tax.
“Mario Scavello is a rubber stamp for Governor Corbett,” one woman states.
Several people call out Scavello for his vote for the transportation bill which raised the gas tax by 28 cents a gallon, with one man calling it “a punch in the gut.”
“I’ll fight the Scavello/Corbett gas tax and I’ll put working families first again,” Aurand pledges at the thirty-second spot’s conclusion.
The Pennsylvania State 40th District includes voters from Northampton and Monroe counties.
