FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – MARCH 11, 2019
CLARKS SUMMIT – Organizations and individuals from across Northeastern Pennsylvania have lined up to support Bridget Malloy Kosierowski’s campaign for State Representative in Pennsylvania’s 114th District.
Here is what a few of them have to say:
U.S. Senator Bob Casey:
“I’m proud to endorse Bridget Kosierowski in her March 12th special campaign to represent the people of the 114th legislative district. Bridget has the kind of life experience that will serve her well as a State Representative. For many years she has worked as a registered nurse, providing quality care to countless patients. This first-hand experience with our health care system will allow Bridget to hit the ground running in the fight to make health care more affordable for families in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Bridget is also the mother of four, one of whom had Leukemia at age four. I know she will fight as hard for children in our region as she did for her own. Her agenda reflects the priorities of the district: she’s committed to reducing health care costs and increasing access, improving our schools, and rethinking our property tax system so everyday Pennsylvanians see relief.”
Congressman Matt Cartwright:
"On Tuesday, March 12, I’m voting for Bridget Malloy Kosierowski. I know Bridget and I know she cares about the people in the communities of the 114th District the same way she cares about her patients as a nurse, and her children as their mother. She’s a worker and a fighter. She’ll work to bring better jobs to our area and she’ll fight to make sure regular working families in Pennsylvania get a fair shake. I can’t think of a better choice to be the first woman State Representative from Lackawanna County since Marion Munley, in 1964. Join me in helping send this fine person to represent us in Harrisburg!"
Pennsylvania Senator John Blake:
"Bridget Malloy Kosierowski cares. It's as simple as that. As a nurse for the last 25 years, she's made a career of helping men, women, and children live longer, healthier lives. As your next representative, Bridget will work tirelessly to make the 114th District a better place to live, to work, and to raise a family. That's why she has my support, and it's why she deserves yours on March 12.”
State Representative Marty Flynn:
"It's very encouraging to know that so many communities in Northeastern Pennsylvania have the opportunity to elect a capable, principled, and substantive leader on March 12. The choice could not be more clear in this election. That's why it is my pleasure to give Bridget Malloy Kosierowski my support today and, when elected, work together with her in Harrisburg to strengthen our communities and stand up for the men and women who make them great."
State Representative Kyle Mullins:
"Bridget Malloy Kosierowski’s decision to run for public office is in lockstep with what made her a successful and respected leader in the nursing sector: Every day she wants to help people and strengthen her community. Because we need – and hardworking families deserve – leaders like Bridget in Northeastern Pennsylvania, it is my pleasure to give her my support. I look forward to our work together in Harrisburg .”
