Two candidates for the state House of Representatives have become the first to sign a Public Service Pledge, committing them to following the will of PA citizens as documented by state-of-the-art public opinion research.
Michael Hays, seeking election in Chester County’s 26th district, and Christopher Lee, running in the 171st district in Centre & Mifflin counties, have signed The Majority Party PA’s pledge.
“Lawmakers always claim to speak for the majority of voters, but the majority want a government that is far better than the one we have,” Hays said. “True public service is about addressing the needs of the people, not those of special interests and Harrisburg lobbyists.”
“I signed the pledge because the government reforms citizens want are the most important issue demanding attention,” said Lee. “Without a state assembly that truly represents voters, we might as well turn our government over to lobbyists.”
The Majority Party PA is a political action committee whose goal is a government that faithfully represents the majority of citizens on ordinary policy issues. All surveys must meet the standards of the American Association for Public Opinion Research, www.aapor.org, to be considered by The Majority Party PA.
