On Tuesday, January 14, voters from Lebanon, Dauphin and York Counties will venture to the polls to vote for a State Senator to represent their interests in the 48th Senatorial District. I believe the choice is clear who best shares the values of residents of Central Pennsylvania and that candidate is myself… Republican Dave Arnold.
As District Attorney of Lebanon County for the past 14 years, I have worked tirelessly as an advocate and voice for crime victims, having personally prosecuted some of the most dangerous members of our society from murderers to drug dealers and child abusers.
I am a lifelong resident of Central Pennsylvania who believes in the values shared by so many in our community…. my opponent, a liberal college professor, does not.
I believe in the sanctity of life, as evidenced by my endorsement from the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation…. my opponent has said he supports taxpayer-funded abortions.
I received an A rating from the National Rifle Association (NRA) as I believe in protecting the 2nd Amendment rights afforded to us by the Constitution of the United States…. my opponent received an F from the NRA and is vehemently anti-gun. NRA grades: https://www.nrapvf.org/grades/Pennsylvania)
Recently during a candidates’ night forum at the Lebanon County Courthouse, my opponent explicitly stated he does not support the elimination of property taxes, I do.
The beliefs echoed by my opponent have no common ground with so many of our residents here in Lebanon, Dauphin and York Counties. Frankly, they are troubling and mirror the ideas shared by left-wing zealots such as Nancy Pelosi and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
For the hardworking and honest people of Central Pennsylvania, the choice is clear who shares the common values instilled by our parents and grandparents. The beliefs taught to us by our ancestors who first settled in this wonderful place we call home are ingrained in my being and soul.
My opponent does not share any of these values we hold so dear.
On January 14, I would be honored to receive your vote as the next State Senator for the 48th Senatorial District so I can continue to protect the values we share and fight for them on a daily basis.
David J. Arnold
Republican Candidate, 48th Senatorial District.
