Remembering One of Our Own

 Click here to view video.

When I was approached by Brady Township supervisors and several veterans organizations with a specific desire to honor a local war hero, I didn’t realize the help I’d get from a legislative “neighbor” with a personal stake in the story.

On Wednesday, the state House unanimously passed legislation that would designate the Route 219/322 bridge over the railroad tracks in Brady Township as the LCPL Robert Clyde Gontero Bridge. State Rep. Cris Dush (R-Jefferson/Indiana), who is Gontero’s first cousin, and I spoke after the vote.

My Attempt to Reign in Washington, DC

 Click here to view video.
On Monday, the House State Government Committee advanced my House Resolution 206, which would call for a “Convention of States,” otherwise known as a Convention for Proposing Amendments, under Article V of the United States Constitution.

Please click on the video above to hear my opening remarks in support of the legislation, which passed on a predominately party line vote.

The Hero I Met This Week

I wish you could meet the man I was introduced to on Tuesday!

December 17 (today) is the 75th anniversary of the Malmedy Massacre in Belgium, an event that occurred during World War II’s Battle of the Bulge when more than 120 American soldiers were assembled in a field and shot at with machine guns by their German captors.

More than 80 men died and approximately 40 miraculously escaped. The soldier in uniform, Harold Billow of Lancaster County, is the last living survivor of the Malmedy Massacre (his 97th birthday is 11 days away).

Mr. Billow survived the massacre by "playing dead" in the snow for hours under a pile of bodies to avoid being shot.

Pictured with us are members of the House who also served in the Armed Forces. Thank you for your service and sacrifice, Mr. Billow!

Thank You for Your Service

Congratulations to Dalton T. Granville and Craig A. Hooven of Clearfield County, who both are part of the State Police Academy’s 157th graduating cadet class.

Both men have been assigned to Troop C, Clearfield.

Unhappy with Your Energy Bill?

The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) is alerting consumers about the potential for large winter energy cost increases for gas and electric customers who do not shop for competitive suppliers.

To avoid the possibility of “sticker shock” from high bills during the coming cold months, the PUC reminds consumers that the start of winter is an important time to compare prices and evaluate competitive supplier options.

If you are a natural gas customer, please click here to start shopping.

If electric is your primary source of energy, please click here to begin comparing and (possibly) saving money!
