Eagle Forum from Alton, IL

“I want to bring to your attention Representative Rick Saccone, who is running for re-election to the Pennsylvania State House 39th District. The district includes part of Allegheny and Washington counties. 
When Rick ran and won in 2010, he promised to (1) refuse the State legislative pension, (2) vote for a balanced budget without tax increases, (3) eliminate “walking around money,” (4) work to pass the Castle Doctrine to allow citizens to defend themselves in their own homes, and (5) institute welfare reforms including drug testing for welfare recipients. Rick has kept each of these promises. Rick is currently sponsoring or co-sponsoring bills that will (1) impose term limits on State legislators, (2) place a moratorium on property tax reassessments and reform school property taxes, (3) reduce the size of the PA House of Representatives from 203 to 153, (4) end massive taxpayer-funded State pensions and move to a 401(k)-style pension system, and (5) privatize the State-owned liquor stores. 
Dr. Saccone is a professor of political science at St. Vincent College. A life-long resident of the area, he and his wife Yong live in Elizabeth Township. They are the proud parents of two adult sons. Rick is a member of the American Association of Christian Counselors as well as a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the American Legion, the Military Officers Association of America, a life member of the National Rifle Association, and a long-time member of Firearms Owners Against Crime. 
Recognized as a devoted Pro-life advocate Representative Saccone is endorsed by the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation and People Concerned for the Unborn Child.”
