Shuster wants to work with Perry on key transportation issues
Gettysburg, Adams County – Congressman Bill Shuster (R-9) today endorsed Rep. Scott Perry in the Republican primary for the Fourth Congressional District during a campaign stop at an Adams County diner.
Shuster, Perry and Rep. Dan Moul (R-Adams) pressed the flesh with a lunchtime crowd at Gettysburg Family Restaurant and spoke about the need to create jobs, control federal spending and repeal Obama Care.
“I’m here today because I know Scott Perry will make a great member of Congress. Republicans are fighting to shrink the federal government, control spending and keep taxes low. This is exactly what Scott Perry has been doing in Harrisburg. We need his leadership in Washington,” said Shuster.
“I am honored to have the support of Congressman Shuster. He is a leader, not just for Central Pennsylvania, but the entire state. As a member of Congress, I would work closely with him on critical transportation and infrastructure issues,” said Perry.
Shuster serves as a member of the influential House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, where he chairs the Subcommittee on Railroads, Pipelines and Hazardous Materials. Shuster’s role in transportation funding was recently expanded when he was placed in charge of the federal transportation funding legislation.
“Infrastructure is critically important to our local economy. Congressman Shuster is playing a lead role in transportation and I want to work with him to help create jobs here,” said Perry.
Earlier this month, Perry was endorsed by Gov. Tom Corbett and he has been endorsed by all 13 of the state senators and representatives in the congressional district. He also just received the endorsement of the National Rifle Association.
