Potter County Commissioners Endorse
Republican Jeff Stroehmann
Coudersport – Potter County’s Republican County Commissioners today endorsed Lycoming County businessman Jeff Stroehmann for Congress. This is the first endorsement any candidate has received from County Commissioners in the 5th Congressional District.
Commissioners Doug Morley and Paul Heimel made the joint announcement, urging
their fellow Republicans to join them in voting for Stroehmann. “His plan for
reinventing rural Pennsylvania is just what we need here in Potter County,
particularly when it comes to his economic vision and strategies,” said
Commissioner Morley. “We ask that our fellow Republicans join with us in
Stroehmann is the only candidate for Congress with an economic development plan
for rural Pennsylvania, entitled, “Reinventing Rural Pennsylvania.”
“Both Doug and I were impressed by the specifics of Jeff’s plan,” said
Commissioner Heimel. “Like Jeff says, we cannot rebuild our communities until we
create more jobs. We also greatly value our natural resources and the things
that make our county special. Jeff gets it, and we are eager to work with him on
his campaign and in Congress.”
The Stroehmann plan builds on the strengths of rural Pennsylvania and calls for
greater growth by focusing on energy independence, greater use of long haul rail
and short haul trucking, and increased re-development of industrial brownfields.
“I am very thankful to Commissioners Morley and Heimel for endorsing me. I have
worked hard in Potter County during my campaign, and I am glad to have GOP
leaders like Doug and Paul onboard my team,” said Stroehmann.
