Why am I seeking re-election? I am running for State Representative because I believe that I can help Pennsylvania move forward and have. I want our state to be a place where our children have the opportunity to find well-paying jobs, buy a decent home and be able to educate and raise their families. I believe that Pennsylvania needs to create a business climate where business owners are able to hire new employees and thrive. As your State Representative, I want to continue to work with businesses and not against them by fighting to keep taxes and regulations low.
As an Assistant District Attorney in Mercer County and a partner with Bartholomew, Mudrinich & Nesbit law firm, I have represented the government, individuals and businesses in state and federal courts throughout Western Pennsylvania. I see the strain placed on county and local governments to provide necessary services. As a professional business owner with employees, I understand the struggle of trying to cover a payroll in today’s economy. I have friends and family members who have lost their jobs through no fault of their own. I worked full time while attending law school and I understand how people are struggling in this down economy. I believe that we can do better. Government does not create jobs – businesses create jobs and government needs to stay out of the way. We need to fully fund education, but do so in new and innovative ways. We need to ensure that business and industry has trained employees to compete in the global economy.
I grew up in Western Pennsylvania and was raised with the traditional values of the area. I moved back home and chose to raise my children here. I want them to have the opportunity to make the same choice. I understand how important it is that we move the economy forward so that the next generation does not have to move away to find a good job. I am pro-life and support the second amendment rights of gun owners. I want to continue to fight for and represent those interests and continue protect the values of our 8th District in Harrisburg.
Thank you for your support.
Candidate for PA House District 8
May 27, 2014
I would like to take a moment to thank all of my supporters, campaign team, friends, and my family for both supporting me and electing me to be the Republican candidate for Pennsylvania’s 8th Legislative District. I am honored to be your Republican nominee and look forward to the opportunity to serve the great people of the 8th District in the near future. The Republican primary race in our district was both exciting and remarkable, and I’d like to recognize both Herman Bauer and Jeff Black for their desire to serve our community as well. As we approach the November election, I look forward to getting to know more of you, your concerns, and learning more about the best ways to represent you all in Harrisburg.
In particular, I would like to recognize my outstanding campaign team and their efforts on my behalf – all of them are local residents who put in countless hours of volunteering and campaigning – I am humbled to have such great friends. Finally, to my wife Shannon and family, THANK YOU for your non-stop support and belief in me.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Tedd Nesbit for PA House District 8
Grove City, PA – December 26, 2013
Tedd Nesbit, a long time resident of Grove City, announced that he is seeking the Republican nomination for the 8th State House District of the Pennsylvania General Assembly. Representative Richard Stevenson, who currently represents the 8th district, announced recently that he would not seek re-election. “He has been an admirable representative and I want to serve this district as well as he has,” says Nesbit.
“I believe my diverse background and education make me uniquely qualified to continue the tradition of excellence that Richard Stevenson exemplified,” said Nesbit. Currently an attorney, Nesbit has been a human resource director for Nick Strimbu, Inc., a regional trucking company before going to law school, and he worked in television and sales after college. After growing up in Grove City, Nesbit earned a bachelor’s degree from Florida State University and later, a law degree from the Thomas Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan.
Nesbit believes that growing jobs is one of the most important issues facing the state: “I want to help Pennsylvania move forward and become a state where our children have the opportunity to find good-paying jobs, buy a home and be able to educate and raise their families.” He says that Pennsylvania needs to create a business climate where business owners are able to hire new employees. As a state Representative, Nesbit said, “I want our state to work with businesses and not against them by keeping taxes and regulations low.”
Nesbit is an Assistant District Attorney in Mercer County and a partner in Bartholomew, Mudrinich & Nesbit, which has offices in Grove City and Hermitage. He has been a guardian ad litem for Mercer County Children and Youth Services and a solicitor for several municipalities in Mercer County. He has represented individuals and businesses in state and federal court throughout Western Pennsylvania.
Nesbit states, “Having worked with local governments, I see the strain placed on county and local governments to provide necessary services. As a business owner with employees, I understand the struggle of trying to cover a payroll in today’s economy. I have friends and family members that have lost their jobs in this down economy and think we can do better.”
Nesbit has been an active volunteer in his community, serving both East Main Church as an Elder and a youth choir director and has served as president of the Grove City United Way. He is also currently the coach for the Slippery Rock Community Swim Team. He resides in Grove City with his wife, Shannon, and his children.
“I want to move Pennsylvania forward while representing and protecting the interests and values of the 8th District in Harrisburg,” says Nesbit.
