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.
