November 5, 2019 is Election Day, and you will have the opportunity to vote for county commissioners. To continue doing the people’s business Jo Ellen Litz asks for your vote.

A county commissioner is elected to serve the people by protecting children, serving families, securing justice, managing emergencies, and safeguarding elections. To that end, Commissioner Jo Ellen Litz serves all corners of Lebanon County.

Jo Ellen is a Democrat who is accessible, transparent, and fiscally conservative. She puts “People Above Politics.”

“As a young woman, I learned, and never forget, that we should “Plan Seven Generations ahead.” Therefore, since the day that I took office, I’ve been working on the Lebanon Valley Rail Trail and Farmland Preservation. I’ve also been working on the Swatara Water Trail. Together, in my opinion, these three projects represent decisions that will benefit unborn generations of children in our communities. If you re-elect Jo Ellen Litz as your county commissioner, I will continue to champion these treasured projects.”

Further, Commissioner Litz researches facts as well as the hearts and minds of people on issues. Then, she represents the people in her votes. Examples include opposing the sale of Cedar Haven and voting against a 32% tax hike.

She also believes that Public Safety is paramount. Commissioner Jo Ellen Litz lobbied for and supports a new 911 Center. “Our dispatchers should not be the only people remaining in the courthouse when there is trouble. They must dispatch fire, ambulance, HazMat and police.”

Next, taking steps to secure justice takes on several forms: working with the courts to establish a Day Reporting Center to stop the cycle of recidivism, installing scanners at the courthouse, facilitating video conferencing, and instituting new medical procedures at the prison are examples.

Litz has also invested countless hours in the purchase of new voting machines, an unfunded mandate, and is working with professionals to secure and block interference by foreign governments in our elections.

Keep Jo Ellen Litz doing the people’s business. Re-elect Litz as your county commissioner on November 5. Polls are open 7AM-8PM.
