Stack Becomes First Statewide Candidate to File Petition Signatures
According to Senator Mike Stack’s (D-Philadelphia) campaign manager Marty Marks, the Stack campaign filed 4,000 signatures today to get him on the ballot in the Democratic primary for Lieutenant Governor.
He is the first statewide candidate to file his petitions this year, and they’re not due until next week.
“We decided we wanted to file early to reflect the hard work we’re doing and to demonstrate that mike stack brings a significant organization to the ticket,” Marks told PoliticsPA. “We believe that we can help the ticket most in November and our early filing here helps demonstrate that.”
Lieutenant Governor candidates are required to amass a minimum of 1,000 signatures from registered Democratic voters, with at least 100 from 5 different counties.
Stack’s first round of filing included 4,000 total signatures, representing more than 100 from 7 different counties. His campaign expects to file an additional 4,000 early next week with representation from six to seven more counties.
Other Democratic candidates for Lt. Governor include Harrisburg city advisor Brenda Alton, former Congressman Mark Critz, Bradford County Commissioner Mark Smith, State Rep. Brandon Neuman, Harrisburg City Councilman Brad Koplinski and former PSU assistant football coach Jay Paterno.
