Democratic candidate for Governor of Pennsylvania John Hanger is widely regarded as one of the most thoughtful and best informed progressive public policy experts in the state. Formerly a public-interest lawyer advocating on behalf of poor families, John is nationally recognized as a leading authority on clean energy development and environmental protection. He served both Governors Casey and Rendell in key positions: first for Bob Casey as Commissioner of the Public Utilities Commission, where he successfully fought to cap electric rates to save Pennsylvania ratepayers millions; and for two years as Secretary of the Department of Environmental Protection in the Rendell Administration. Throughout his career in public service, John has embodied the essence of his campaign slogan "Policy first, politics second."

Editor's note: John Hanger is the only candidate for Governor of Pennsylvania who has shown enough interest in the voters of Northern Pennsylvania to send us information on their campaign. John also toured the Northern Tier this summer, stopping in many towns to talk to voters.

"Democratic" candidate for Governor of Pennsylvania John Hanger? Actually, Democrat candidate, but then he would be aligned with obama.
