Garrity Promotes Conservative Values in 1st TV Ad

The GOP candidate for Treasurer is on television. 

Stacy Garrity, an Iraq War veteran and businesswoman, who is challenging Treasurer Joe Torsella’s opening TV ad briefly highlights her background, while promoting “Pennsylvania” values. 

“I’m Stacy Garrity, a conservative, businesswoman, and Iraq War veteran,” Garrity says at the beginning of the 15 second spot, “We Stand.”

“In Pennsylvania, we stand for the National Anthem, we kneel to pray, and we put family and country first,” Garrity continues.

“I’m Stacy Garrity and I’m running to hold Harrisburg accountable,” she says to complete the ad. 

PoliticsPA is seeking comment from the Torsella campaign on this ad. 

According to a release from the Garrity campaign on Oct. 20, the TV ad will air in the Wilkes Barre/Scranton and Johnstown/Altoona markets.

Torsella has released a pair of TV spots running statewide in the race. His first ad titled, “Leading By Example” promoted some of the changes he’s brought to an office that has previously been plagued by corruption in the state. Torsella’s second ad titled, “Rigged”, features the incumbent railing against Wall Street, while promoting his record since being elected to the statewide office in 2016. 

The lone public poll released of the race showed Torsella in the lead. 

A Monmouth University poll showed Torsella leading Garrity by by 6 points, 47-to-41, among registered voters in the state in the race for Treasurer, while 10% are undecided. Torsella holds a 5 point lead over Garrity, 47-to-42, among likely voters in Monmouth’s high turnout model. Torsella’s lead over Garrity shrinks to 4 points, 47-to-43, among likely voters in Monmouth’s low turnout model.

Torsella defeated Republican Otto Voit by 6 points in the 2016 election for the open Treasurer seat.

  1. In another time would be a good candidate for the Republican base. But Trump is going to lose PA and a weak top of the ticket spells doom for down ballot candidacies. Plus, Torsella’s ads are quite impressive. He sounds like he could be running against the Republican candidate in the primary when talks of not taking a pension and his focus on cost cutting. Bottom line: R is a good candidate but the timing this year is off.

  2. What does flag-waving gospel on your knees have to do with honest handling of the money?

    1. She started as an accountant for a large manufacturing company and worked her way up to Vice President of the company. She also happens to be a retired Army Colonel who had 1200 troops under her command in the last Iraq War where she was awarded the Legion of Merit which is one of the top medals a soldier can earn. She has earned the right to wave the flag proudly.

  3. Ok, that’s cool I guess. But what do any of those things have to do with being a capable State Treasurer?

      1. That’s fair. But probably something she should have highlighted as opposed to a bunch of irrelevant social issues.
