Metcalfe seeks re-election in state House



CRANBERRY TWP — State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe, R-12th, will run for re-election in the state House of Representatives.
“I am the leading voice and vote in Harrisburg for citizens who believe in limited, more efficient government and less taxation. Our government spends too much and takes far more than they should to satisfy their insatiable appetite for the money of hard-working taxpayers,” Metcalfe said this morning in a release.
He is chairman of the house State Government Committee because of his seniority in the House Republican Caucus.
“I will continue to use my additional influence as a standing committee chairman to advance legislation that protects the individual liberties and pockets of my constituents. I will continue the fight to protect hard-working taxpayers,” Metcalfe said.
He said his platform also includes local control for schools and traditional family values.
In the May 20 Republican primary, Metcalfe will face challenger Gordon Marburger of Adams Township.
Metcalfe 51, of Cranberry Township said he usually has competition due to the strong stances he takes. He said he is a strong fiscal and social conservative, and that there is a minority of Republicans who do not support traditional GOP issues.
“There’s always someone who has a target on me,” Metcalfe said. “I’m used to competition.”
Lisa Zucco of Cranberry Township, who is running unopposed in the Democratic primary, will face the winner of the GOP primary in the Nov. 4 election.
The 12th District covers Adams, Clinton, Cranberry, Forward, Middlesex and Penn townships as well as Callery, Mars, Seven Fields and Valencia.
