Millersburg, PA – Democratic Dauphin County resident, mechanical engineer, and Millersburg Borough Council President, Chris Dietz officially announces his candidacy for the 104th district of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. Dietz is a community builder, proponent of eco-tourism, and government reformer, who will strive to assist the working families of the 104th district.
The new map of the 104th House district includes the boroughs of Dauphin, Halifax, Millersburg and Penbrook and the townships of East Hanover (in Dauphin and Lebanon Counties), Halifax, Jefferson, Middle Paxton, North Annville, Reed, Rush, Susquehanna, Upper Paxton, Wayne, and wards 4 and 7 in Swatara.
When asked why he is running, Dietz replied:
“Local, family-sustaining jobs, legislative reform, quality public education, and conservation are very important to my friends and neighbors. Years of public service in municipal government have equipped me with the experience and vigor to advocate for my fellow residents of the 104th. At a time when state government should be helping the citizens that elected them, our legislature is more disconnected than ever from the common citizen. We are battling to create jobs in our local communities. The legislature’s automatic pay raises are not reflective of stagnant wages and high rates of unemployment in the private sector. Funding for public education is under attack. Resources dedicated to conserving Pennsylvania’s green and open space are dwindling. It is time for our state government to reaffirm its commitment to making Pennsylvania the best state in which to live, work, play, and raise a family.”
Diane Bowman, President of the Susquehanna Township Commissioners and former Chair of the Dauphin County Democratic Committee will Chair Mr. Dietz’s campaign.
“As President of Millersburg Borough Council, Mr. Dietz has shown he has the drive and dedication to respond and be proactive in improving the quality of life in Millersburg. He has what it takes to advocate for those community-minded values from inside the General Assembly for all of the 104th Legislative District. I am pleased to support his campaign for State Representative.”
