Serving HD-48 in Washington County

Clark Mitchell for State Representative

Contribute Call for Clark

Clark Mitchell is running to fill the vacant seat of House District 48, which represents a large part of Washington County. The seat was previously held by a Democrat but has been targeted by Republicans in 2018.

Why Clark’s Running
Clark intends to bring western Pennsylvania values back to Harrisburg: values that he sees are under attack by career politicians who put politics over PA.

He has pledged to protect Medicare, Medicaid, and social security. He’ll also stand strong with union workers while fighting to raise the minimum wage, and he’ll aggressively combat the opioid crisis.

About Clark
Clark was born and raised in Washington County, where he grew up fishing, hunting, and playing football. He now serves as an attorney in the area.

A graduate of the Trinity Area School District, he knows our public schools must be fairly funded for all persons, regardless of zip code across the state.  Additionally, he is an ardent supporter of funding technical training programs to support local jobs.

Who Can Vote for Clark?
Any registered voter (not just Democrats) in House District 68 can vote for Clark during the special election on May 15, 2018. HD-48 includes the central portion of Washington County (see district map).

To vote for Clark on May 15th, find your polling place through PA Voter Services.

Serving HD-68 in Bradford, Potter, and Tioga Counties

Carrie Heath for State Representative

Contribute Call for Carrie

Public servant in every sense, Carrie Heath saw that her rural farming community lacked a Democratic voice in Harrisburg and stepped up to fix that herself. She’s running to represent Bradford, Potter, and Tioga counties.

Why Carrie’s Running
After years of being overlooked and shut out, HD-68 is sure to get its fair share with Carrie representing it in Harrisburg.

Carrie’s three-point platform focuses on: infrastructure investment in northern PA, a technical education center, and aggressively combating our public health issues like addiction, depression, and domestic abuse.

About Carrie
As a teacher, union member, and co-founder of Tioga County Indivisible, public service is at the core of Carrie Heath’s life.

Carrie comes from a long line of farmers. Like her ancestors of The Grange, she understands the value of banding together as a force for the common good, and she’ll apply that philosophy to lead Pennsylvania forward as a state representative.

Carrie lives in Wellsboro with her husband, Sergeant First Class David Pettit, a combat veteran of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. The two share their home with a son at Penn State, many pets, and David’s thriving collection of beehives!

Who Can Vote for Carrie?
Any registered voter (not just Democrats) in House District 68 can vote for Carrie during the special election on May 15, 2018. HD-68 includes all of Tioga County, western Bradford County, and a small notch of Potter County (see district map).

To vote for Carrie on May 15th, find your polling place through PA Voter Services.

Why Helen’s Running

She’s also a vocal proponent of LGBTQ rights, equal pay for women, public interest programs, and other legislation that promotes equitable treatment of all Pennsylvanians.

About Helen
