I have always loved York, my wonderful hometown. My fellow Yorkers are lucky to have another fan of York running for state representative in the 95th District.

Bryan Tate has been a public servant and a civil leader for over 20 years. As a York City resident, Bryan has worked tirelessly to support our town and to improve the lives of all citizens. As chief of staff for my son Todd Platts, Bryan led a staff that provided outstanding constituent service. He has approached every challenge with enthusiasm, energy and creativity.

I am proud to call Bryan a friend and to urge all residents of the 95th to elect him on May 21. This is a special election to fill a vacancy, so the normal primary rules do not apply. Both Democrats and Republicans can vote for Bryan to represent them in Harrisburg. Bryan Tate will make the 95th proud.
