The Jobs Score: Pat Toomey: Hundreds of Jobs – Joe Sestak: Zero Jobs

The Jobs Score: Pat Toomey: Hundreds of Jobs – Joe Sestak: Zero Jobs
Allentown – While Congressman Joe Sestak continues to be dishonest about Pat Toomey’s record on jobs, it is important to remember that there is only one candidate in this race who has actual experience creating jobs in Pennsylvania – and that is Pat Toomey.
From 1991 – 1998, Pat owned and ran several small businesses with his brothers in the Lehigh Valley and Lancaster and created hundreds of jobs for people in Pennsylvania.  During that time, Pat learned that the best way to create jobs is to keep taxes and government burdens low to give small businesses the flexibility to thrive and hire new employees.  In contrast, Joe Sestak has never created a job in the private sector.  And it shows. 
Read testimonials about Pat’s record of job creation:
“Pat hired me to be the Vice President of Operations for Rookies in Allentown.  Working with Pat was a great opportunity and one I appreciate to this day.  Together, we did all the stuff that lots of small business folks do to make their businesses successful.  We set goals; we established budgets; we met periodically to measure the progress on those goals; we made personnel decisions; and we updated and revised our menu periodically, among many other things.  In my book, Pat was as hard a working small business owner as any I’ve met and he helped create many jobs in the Lehigh Valley.” – Bill Smedile, current owner of Rookies
Michael Rosenfeld, Executive Director of the Allentown Redevelopment Authority said about Pat’s small businesses: “It certainly was under responsible ownership.  It brought thousands of people downtown.” – York Sunday News, 11/02/03
“I got to know Pat when he started his restaurants here in Allentown when I was the Assistant to Mayor Joe Daddona.  In addition, my wife and I had a small family business for several years in King of Prussia, employing our son and daughter, and we know how hard it is to run a small businesses.  There is no question that Pat is a hardworking small businessman whose involvement in the restaurant business helped to bring many jobs to the Allentown area over the years.  Pat’s business was an asset to our community.”- Karl Kercher, Assistant and Chief of Staff to former Democratic Mayor of Allentown, Joe Daddona
