On August 11, Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman endorsed Joe Waltz for the 76th House District seat.
The endorsement featuring the lieutenant governor came to the 76th District via a virtual Zoom event due to COVID-19 and related mitigation efforts. A small crowd gathered for the event at the Campaign Headquarters at 108 Bellefonte Ave., and others joined via Zoom to listen in.
“From the bottom of my heart, thank you Joe for running,” Fetterman said. “I wish I could be there in person with all of you, but today is a different day…. I am proud to give a full-throated endorsement to Joe.”
Waltz, who served 34 years as an educator within the Keystone Central School District before retiring in 2007, won the Democratic nomination for the 76th District in the primary. He has indicated he will be a strong advocate for all of the people in the 76th District by focusing on tackling the issues that will help improve the quality of life for area residents and encourage population growth and retention.
“My campaign for the 76th District is focused on the people, and Lieutenant Governor Fetterman has shown through his various listening tours across the state that he too is concerned about hearing from all the people,” said Waltz. “I am thankful to Lieutenant Governor Fetterman for his endorsement.”
