Throughout my life, sitting on the sidelines has never been an option for me. Over the course of this hard-fought campaign, I have traveled across the 8th district. I have listened to area residents. I have learned about their wishes, concerns, and hopes for a better future.
Though we did not get the result we wanted, I am not defeated. I am steadfast in my belief that a brighter future for Northeastern PA is attainable.
Thank you to my wife, Maria, and my family, for allowing me to take this wonderful journey with all of you.
I want to thank all my many supporters. My gratitude runs deep for all they've given to help me realize a dream of mine, a dream of giving back to Pennsylvania.
I am committed to giving back to this state and region that has given me much.
I look forward to serving the great people of Pennsylvania over my lifetime.
