In case you hadn’t heard, Harrisburg’s debt issues have been solved.
Brad was integral in making sure this deal was fair to the people of Harrisburg and that the creditors took a haircut. He took on the Corbett Administration to make sure that the State played a part in the solution, when they previously refused to help.
Yeah let’s beat Corbett by running A city councilman from the most distressed city in the country!
Koplinski is great at building coalitions. He is a smart guy and not a DINO/Blue Dog. I think he is the favorite.
Brad is a great candidate who will make an exceptional Lt. Governor. I have known him since the Kerry Campaign and he is a proven leader who is not afraid to tackle difficult issues. I am proud to support Brad for Lt. Governor!
