Borowicz announces his candidacy for re-election | News, Sports, Jobs


McELHATTAN — State Representative Stephanie Borowicz has announced that she is running for re-election in the 76th Legislative District of the Pennsylvania State House of Representatives.

The newly created 76th Legislative District includes all of Clinton County and part of Union County including the townships of Buffalo, Hartley, Kelly, Lewis, Limestone and West Buffalo and the boroughs of Hartleton, Lewisburg, Mifflinburg and New Berlin.

“It is an honor and a privilege for me to be your State Representative. I consider myself a patriot and not a politician,” said Rep. Borowicz. “I work for you”,We the people” knowing that freedom hangs in the balance. My priorities are the priorities of freedom: the freedom to raise a family without government intrusion; the freedom to operate your farms and businesses without binding regulations; freedom from the burden of public debt; freedom for those who have no voice; and the freedom to keep your money in your own pockets.

Representative Borowicz went on to say: “I go to Harrisburg with these principles in mind and have created legislation or co-sponsored legislation with these beliefs. I refuse state pension and daily allowances. I fought back against Governor Wolf’s unconstitutional mandates and massive tax increases. I introduced the Heart-Beat Bill, the strongest pro-life legislation in Pennsylvania history, and the Fairness in Women’s Sports Act, ensuring women can compete fairly. I passed gun-friendly legislation and also introduced legislation to remove the cost of living allowance for lawmakers. I co-sponsored legislation to reduce the net corporate income tax rate and voted out of committee the Taxpayer Protection Act that curbs frivolous government spending. I also co-sponsored a group of lobbyist giveaways and a term limits bill.

As a mother, former fourth-grade teacher, and pastor’s wife, Rep. Borowicz is also focused on property tax reform, improving our education system to fully empower tomorrow’s workforce, and fighting crime and the opioid epidemic to improve public safety.

Borowicz said: “I am grateful to be able to join you in seeing all the wonderful things we can accomplish for the place we call home. I ask for your continued support and would be honored to win your vote.
