Pennsylvania is screaming R as of Tuesday, but not all D’s are in nostalgia mode; remembering the happy times when their party owned the majority in two out of three clubs.
Representative Eugene DePasquale summed it up this way, “As a Democrat, some things will certainly be different for me, and I am ready to face the new challenges that await.”
DePasquale, who represents York says he will not be stymied by the change in leadership, “I will continue to push to make Pennsylvania a leader in alternative energy production and jobs; to hold elected officials accountable for their actions and use of taxpayer dollars; to make Marcellus Shale drillers pay for the damage they inflict on our land and water; to keep recalled toys out of our children’s hands; and to ban the deadly behavior of texting while driving.”
Tribune-Review Columnist Brad Bumsted recently named DePasquale one of the top ten lawmakers to watch. Bumsted noted that DePasquale is the “‘Grandson of former Pittsburgh City Council President ‘”Jeep”‘ DePasquale, he’s got politics in his blood. He’s got a nose for being at the center of controversial issues. He’s still growing and a little wet behind the ears, but he has star potential.”
