I’m Scott Conklin. I’ve represented Centre County as a county commissioner from 1999 to 2006, and in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives since 2007. Today, I’m proud to endorse Marc Friedenberg for U.S. Congress, to represent us in Washington.
My district, the 77th, has a lot in common with the 12th Congressional District. They both include State College and Penn State, along with many rural areas. While the needs of those communities are sometimes different, they are united by the need for a representative that hears them and that will actually represent them. Marc Friedenberg is the right man for the job.
Having worked as a legislator in Harrisburg for over a decade, I have a first hand understanding of what it takes to effectively craft and implement policies, especially those involving jobs, education, and the budget.
Marc is the voice that our district needs. I’m proud to endorse him for Congress.
