Ray Nearhood Successful in Write-In Effort


Scranton, PA – Based on unofficial returns, Ray Nearhood was successful in his effort to secure the Republican nomination for Representative in the General Assembly for the 112th Legislative District.  Mr. Nearhood released the following statement:

“I would like to thank the hundreds of voters who took the time to write my name in for State Representative.  I would also like to thank the many volunteers that helped make our write-in campaign successful.  The results of today’s tabulation are incredibly encouraging.

“Voters from across the district came together in support of my candidacy and to guarantee that they would have a choice in the November General Election.  We all know there are many problems in Harrisburg.  My work in the private sector, background in public administration, and real-world experience working with municipalities and counties across the Commonwealth uniquely qualify me to offer real, common sense solutions to those problems.

“I look forward to the opportunity to discuss those solutions throughout the upcoming campaign season.”
