Steve Barrar is “Out of Touch”

My name is David Cleary and I am running for the Pennsylvania State House of Representatives, 160th District.

At the end of this article the author mentions the democratic candidate for this office, but fails to mention that David Cleary is also on the ballot. I am running for this office because I think Steve Barrar is “out of touch” and the citizen of the 160th Legislative District deserve better.

I have knocked on a lot of doors including some in Chadds Ford, and many people in the 160th district don’t know who their state representative is. I would love to have a forum in Chadds Ford from which to meet people and speak about my candidacy, but I don’t have a legislative office to campaign from. I have to get my name out the old fashioned way door-to-door.

Was this healthcare event brought to the citizens of Chadds Ford as a service of Representatives Barrar’s legislative office or candidate Barrar’s campaign? My understanding is that this event was not a campaign event but rather a service his legislative office provides. If this was a campaign event as the article implies, then it should not have been advertised, supported or funded in anyway by his legislative office.

This election, Steve Barrar will have to talk about what he has done in his 14 years as a legislator (his record) and what he intends to do in the future. Simply complaining about Governor Rendell (who is leaving office in a couple months) or complaining about the democrats will not be sufficient. Candidate Barrar is going to have to have to win the voters on his merits because David Cleary is also running for this office. or
