Akron’s Beiler seeking 43rd seat
After personal consideration and with the encouragement and support of family and friends, Republican Glen Beiler announced that he has decided to seek the office of Pennsylvania State Representative in the 43rd District.
Beiler, 52, a courier for FedEx, resides in Akron. He and his wife Judy, have four children.
He believes that among the many issues facing Pennsylania, reducing the tax burden and enhancing the business climate is the most direct path out of the recession.
"Pennsylvania is a great state in which to live, work and raise a family and I believe reducing the tax burden on small business should be a priority," Beiler said. "Working in the private sector my entire life, I believe we are better served keeping government out of the job-creating business."
Beiler is a social and fiscal conservative and served as one of Senator Pat Toomey’s earliest supporters in his first bid for the U.S. Senate.
"Just as Senator Toomey focused on reducing the size and scope of the federal government, so should Pennsylvania live within its means," Beiler said.
"Along with tax burdens on business, the ongoing task of municipalities maintaining services without increasing taxes is an important challenge we must face," he continued. "For the past two decades, I have worked to elect leaders locally and statewide who will address the many concerns I hear from local taxpayers."
The 43rd seat is now held by Representative Scott Boyd, who will be retiring at the end of this term.
