Marburger seeks GOP nomination for state rep



Gordon Marburger hopes to unseat state Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, R-12th.
“I feel I am the better person to help steer our state in a better direction,” said Marburger, 57, of Adams Township.
He will run against Metcalfe in the May 20 Republican primary.
Marburger said Metcalfe seems to be too involved with state and even national issues and does not focus on the district or its residents.
He said improvements to Route 228 as well as Freedom and Rochester roads in Cranberry Township, have been “stranded.” He said Route 228, with all of its development, needs to be four lanes. Bridges and other infrastructure also need improvements.
He wants to restore Glade Run Lake in Middlesex Township, which was drained in 2011 after its dam was found to be faulty. Metcalfe has said he does not support state dollars being used to fix the lake.
“When he said that, that kind of started the fire,” Marburger said about becoming interested in running for office.
He has served on the Mars School Board since 2006. He also is on the boards of the Butler County Vocational-Technical School and Butler County Community College.
Marburger is a self-employed farmer and works part-time as a bus driver. He graduated from Mars High School in 1975 and earned a bachelor's degree in agriculture business from Penn State University in 1979.
His wife, Diane, is the Butler County treasurer. They have two children.
