Franklin Twp official seeks state House seat

FRANKLIN TWP — A third candidate is running to replace retiring state Rep. Dick Stevenson.
Herman Bauer of Franklin Township has announced that he will run in the May 20 Republican primary to represent the 8th District in the state House.
Stevenson of Grove City announced in December that he will not run for reelection.
Bauer is the chairman of the Franklin Township supervisors. He said that experience has given him insight on how to be a good steward of tax dollars.
He said that the state can revitalize job growth, especially with the current “once in a lifetime” economic boom of the Marcellus Shale natural gas industry, and still preserve water quality and landowner rights.
He said he would work for changes in several areas, including how education is funded, tax reform, pension costs, and the high cost of college education.
A financial controller for Caldon Ultrasonics, a high-tech business unit of the Cameron Corp., he has a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and an MBA from the University of Pittsburgh.
He and his wife, Rebecca, have five adult children.
Tedd Nesbit, a Grove City lawyer, and Jeffry Black, a Grove City borough councilman and business owner, also have announced that they will run for the seat in the GOP primary.
