HARRISBURG, Pa. - A Dauphin County commissioner for more than 12 years announced Thursday his run for Congress in Pennsylvania's 15th District.
If elected, Mike Pries would serve families living in all of Lehigh County and parts of Berks, Dauphin, Lebanon, and Northampton counties.
"As Dauphin County commissioner and a local government leader... I have put the needs of hardworking families first and have never raised property taxes," Pries said in an opinion editorial.
Pries said he prides himself on creating a business-friendly climate, keeping low taxes, and providing incentives for growth and opportunity. He also said he'll go to work each day with the one mission of "putting families first."
"I'm pro-life, pro-family and stand firmly behind the values that founded our county," Pries said. "Most importantly, I'm a father who will go to work each day as your congressman to fight for your family and our children's future."
The winning Powerball ticket worth almost $457 million was sold at a convenience store in Lancaster County, according to Pennsylvania Lottery officials.Read More »
