Issues that Matter

JOBS:

There is no more important issue facing Pennsylvania than jobs.  Tedd Nesbit believes that we need to help businesses move forward and expand by lowering the tax burdens and regulations.  Government does not create jobs, businesses do.  Most of the potential growth will come from small businesses.  Pennsylvania needs to help business and not work against them.  He will bring a common sense business approach to Harrisburg.

Pennsylvania needs to create the economy for the future.  Tedd Nesbit believes that we need to train our students to compete in the global marketplace.  We can do that, in part, by supporting vocational training programs and by emphasizing vocational training in schools. Employers in our state sometime struggle to find employees with the right skills.

Education:

Tedd Nesbit believes that Pennsylvania needs to move the educational system forward by exploring new ways to prepare our children to compete in the global economy.  Pennsylvania needs to invest wisely in new technologies while still maintaining an emphasis on what works.

Tedd Nesbit believes that Harrisburg should not allow Pittsburgh and Philadelphia to dictate to the school boards of Mercer and Butler county schools what programs are important or not important.  Pennsylvania should not force a “one size fits all” approach on our students.

Energy:

Tedd Nesbit believes that Pennsylvania has the opportunity to move forward with new energy production.  Utilizing new technology, energy companies are busy spending money in Pennsylvania.  Tedd Nesbit supports creating jobs in the energy market and believes that we can balance job growth and environmental protection.  “As someone that uses the beautiful woods and Pennsylvania Rivers frequently, I believe that we can protect the environment while still capturing its natural resources.”

Infrastructure:

Tedd Nesbit believes that Pennsylvania should be vigilant in rebuilding our roads, bridges and other public systems.  Many of these systems were created more than 100 years ago and are falling apart.  Tedd believes that Pennsylvania needs to be very vigilant in reigning in the costs of these projects.

Pro life & the 2nd Amendment

Tedd Nesbit is pro-life and believes Pennsylvania needs to create an environment where life is protected.

Tedd Nesbit supports hunters and gun owner’s rights in Pennsylvania.  “I believe there are currently enough laws concerning gun control and do not favor adding any additional burdens to law abiding citizens of Pennsylvania.”
