“I want to bring practical leadership and real world experience to Washington. Career politicians are not getting it done,” Lewis told PoliticsPA.
Lewis is currently the Chief Operating Officer of Tradesman Building Group. Prior to joining the business, Lewis served in the U.S. Army for 10 years of active duty.
In 2016, Lewis ran for the state Senate in the 15th district, losing in the primary to now state Senator John DiSanto. Lewis says that he gained valuable experience in that race.
“I knocked on thousands of door during the race, and built relationships with community leaders across the district,” Lewis said.
The 11th district is a geographically large district, spanning from almost 20 miles from the New York border to about 20 miles from the Maryland border and without a major population center, though many consider the district to be a northeast district.
Lewis does not see it that way, saying that since Dauphin county is in the middle of the district he can more easily reach the entire district.
Lewis is not the only candidate from the southern parts of the district, state Representative Steve Bloom (R-Cumberland) is also in the race. Former state Revenue Secretary Dan Meuser, from the northern part of the district, also declared for the race.
