U.S. Congressional candidate Tom Marino visited Northumberland and Snyder County as he continues a "listening tour" throughout the 10th Congressional District.
He started his day by appearing live on WKOK's "ON THE MARK" radio show, which was hosted by Ben Reichley and Than Mitchell. Marino responded to phone calls and email questions submitted by voters in the Susquehanna Valley.
After the radio program, Tom Marino toured Sunbury Textile Mills in Sunbury, then participated in a lunch "roundtable" in Selinsgrove, which was attended by several local Republican officials. Following lunch, Marino joined Snyder County Commissioners Malcolm Derk and Joe Kantz for a tour of Wood-Mode, Inc. and Kreamer Feed in Kreamer. Derk and Marino then visited Middlecreek Area Community Center in Beaver Springs, they ended their day by having dinner with several Republican activists.
"I am traveling throughout the district and listening to the concerns of people. One of the top issues that folks are worried about is jobs. I worked in a factory until I was 30 and personally understand the importance of good paying manufacturing jobs. The employers that I visited today are providing family sustaining jobs for people in this region. In order to create more jobs, they need a Congressman that will go to Washington and fight for less regulation, lower taxes, and fairer trade laws. As your next Congressman, I pledge to help the private sector create jobs, not stand in the way of economic development" said Marino.
