REPUBLICAN CONFERENCE NOMINATES DAVID ROWE FOR STATE REPRESENTATIVE IN THE 85TH DISTRICT
On Thursday night, Republican conferees in Pennsylvania’s 85th Legislative District nominated conservative small business owner David Rowe to run in the August 20th special election for State Representative. The special election is needed to replace Fred Keller, who resigned as State Representative after being elected to Congress in May.
Republican representatives from Union and Snyder counties gathered at the Country Cupboard Best Western in Lewisburg to select a candidate.
“I am honored to be the Republican standard bearer in this important special election,” said Rowe. “I look forward to discussing our conservative, common sense message with the voters of Union and Snyder counties.”
Rowe continued, “I will fight for stronger economic growth and more family-sustaining jobs, lower taxes, a robust farming community, and less burdensome regulation on small businesses. I will stand up for our conservative values against the liberal Democrats who push for bigger, more intrusive, and more expensive government. I am Pro-Life, support the Second Amendment, and will work to protect religious liberty.”
“As a local business owner and employer, I know the business community is constantly challenged with ever increasing government regulations and taxes,” explained Rowe. “That’s why as an East Buffalo Township Supervisor I have never voted to raise taxes or expand government regulations. I am ready to take this same conservative, common sense approach to Harrisburg.”
For the past nine years, Rowe has been the owner and operator of LBG Fitness Inc. (CrossFit Lewisburg) and employs six local residents. Rowe is an active leader in the local community, serving as Vice-Chairman of the East Buffalo Township Board of Supervisors; Secretary of the Union County Republican Committee; a member of the Capital Campaign Council of Evangelical Community Hospital; a Director of the Central Susquehanna Fire and Emergency Services board; and a Commissioner of the Buffalo Valley Regional Police Department, among other leadership roles. Rowe is a member of the New Hope Lutheran Brethren Church in Lewisburg.
