Mattei is on the Way! This Thursday!

At this time, Joe Emrick is the State representative for the 137th legislative district in Pa. It's a slice of the eastern portion of the slate belt, and reaches into Stockertown, Tatamy, Nazareth, Upper Nazareth and includes a portion of Palmer Township. Though it's a republican seat, it was represented for ten years by Democrat Rich Grucela. Democratic write-in candidate Dave Mattei would like to pick up where Rich left off and actually represent the people instead of a consortium of lobbyists and developers like J.B. Reilly.

Dave's campaign kick-off will be this Thursday, 6 pm, at the Farmers' Insurance Office, located at 6 South Broad Street in Nazareth.

Mattei opened the Farmers Insurance agency in Nazareth four years ago, serves on the board of the Nazareth-Bath Regional Chamber of Commerce, and is a member of the Nazareth Rotary. He lives in downtown Nazareth, not far from my estate, and I sometimes wave at him or have one of servants lift my arm and do it. He is a former New Jersey State Trooper.

This is his first run for political office.

Former State Rep. Rich Grucela is reportedly ready to offer his endorsement and support on Thursday.

I have heard great things about him. Heard he is a straight up guy and a great business man.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm switching insurance agents.
