“It’s time to get state government off our backs.”

Upon Rick Saccone’s decision not to run for re-election to the State House, Tom Kirsch has decided to announce his intention to run in the soon to be open seat. The district is split between Allegheny and Washington Counties.

“I’m running for state house because I’m sick and tired of weak-kneed politicians that only fight for special interests and not the people’s interest,” Kirsch said. “State government is broken and it’s not going to be fixed by sending the same boiler-plate politicians to Harrisburg.”

Kirsch lives in Bethel Park and is a seasoned business professional. “One thing that will separate me from other candidates is that I can speak my mind freely and not worry about losing an election because I’ve already planned for retirement.” Kirsch continued, “I will be able to lead on issues that are important to this district while many others would run and hide,” He finished, “I will take my 30 years of business experience with me to Harrisburg and use it to the benefit of the residents of the 39th.”

The drug epidemic has hit southwestern PA particularly hard.

“As a father and grandfather it breaks my heart to see so many fall victim. I believe we need to equip our law enforcement with the proper tools to help them find the dealers and distributors.” Kirsch continued, “On the victim side I would like to see more done from an educational perspective so that we can teach our youth about the risks and dangers of drugs at an earlier age.”

Kirsch also believes that state government is not doing its part to create a friendly business environment. “Pennsylvania is ranked among the worst states in the country to do business because of our hostile tax and regulatory climate,” Kirsch finished. “If Governor Wolf’s intention was to run companies out of business then I would give him an A+.”

The pension crisis is coming full circle in Pennsylvania. “Mild reform was recently enacted but financial troubles will continue to plague us until the unfunded liability is addressed.” He continued, “If we are serious about pension reform then we should abolish them for all future state employees, including elected officials.” Kirsch finished, “It’s unfair to ask seniors on fixed income to pay for lavish benefits for state employees.”

Kirsch is a staunch conservative, noting, “I will vote to protect life every time,” adding, “Any bills that impede our 2nd amendment rights I will adamantly oppose.”

Tom is married to Cathy and they have a daughter and three grandchildren. They are members of St. Joan of Arc church in South Park, PA. Tom is a member of the NRA and FOAC.
