Family law attorney Kerith Strano Taylor has announced that she is running for the office of Representative in Congress for Pennsylvania’s 5th District.
Strano Taylor spoke to a crowd of bipartisan supporters who made the trek out to hear her announcement on this snowy February morning.
“I am humbled by the presence of so many supporters that are here today. I am filled with great excitement and a sense of responsibility as I announce my candidacy for the office of Representative in the United States Congress of Pennsylvania’s Fifth Congressional District,” said Strano Taylor.
The congressional hopeful has political experience in the form of her position as President of the Brookville Area School Board as well as her appointment to the Federal Relations Network, a national organization that works to improve education policy.
Strano Taylor cited several issues that she wants to address as Congresswoman, including the national debt, policy and political gridlock, education, and sustainability.
“I am a concerned citizen that sees a fundamental lack of leadership in Pennsylvania’s Fifth Congressional District and in Washington. I will bring a new perspective to Congress. Negotiation works when the needs of the people are put first,” said Strano Taylor. “As a small business owner, I understand the need for sound fiscal judgement, a balanced budget, and providing a stable and open environment that enables growth for employees and business.”
She concluded her rally by stating, “I believe Pennsylvania and the Nation are still a place of opportunity and that brighter days are ahead of us. Together, we can strengthen our communities and prepare the next generation for success.”
