DuBois, PA – A DuBois man, Michael Clement, intends to run for the 75th District State House of Representatives. The office is currently held by Rep. Matt Gabler, who has recently announced that he will not be running for re-election.
“Today, I’m announcing my candidacy for the 75th District State House of Representatives. It has been a lifelong dream of mine to run for public office and serve the community I grew up in. Now that State Representative Matt Gabler has announced his intention to not run for re-election, I am announcing my candidacy because I have a deep desire to serve and to bring the leadership, integrity and character that is needed in both our district and in Harrisburg. I will run a campaign that all people in the 75th District will be proud of.
I want to thank my friend, and our State Representative Matt Gabler for a stellar career in the PA House. For nearly 12 years he has served us very well and honorably in Harrisburg. Like Matt, I will be a strong voice on the values most important to our area. You will be able to count on me to be Pro-Life, a strong advocate for the 2nd Amendment as guaranteed by our United State Constitution, and to support economic policies that foster an economic environment that leads to lower taxes and high paying, sustainable jobs. I strongly believe that Harrisburg needs to reign in wasteful spending.”
