INFO & AUDIO FROM BAYLOR CAMPAIGN

The Reading Eagle online edition published “Vote 2010 — A guide to the general election,” including the excerpt below featuring state Representative candidate Dennis Baylor.  All state candidates were asked:

The state’s financial problems continue to grow.  Taxing the Marcellus shale has been suggested as a way to boost revenues.  Why do you think we should or shouldn’t put the need for tax revenue above the potential harm that drilling could cause to the environment?

No party affiliation

Dennis Baylor, 60, Tilden Township

Background: Engineer who worked for several area firms before retiring.

Website: www.dennisbaylor.com

Response: “I’m afraid the Pennsylvania legislature has rendered that question moot. While they cannot agree on how much to tax gas extraction, they’re ready to give away nearly $70 million to industry-related projects. The proposed projects range from a Carnegie Mellon research center that would evaluate the impact of drilling to several wastewater treatment plants for the drillers’ fracking fluids, an enterprise center for Marcellus industries and railway upgrades to accommodate the industry. These are paid for by the taxpayers of Pennsylvania, not by taxes levied on the industry. If the Republicans win in November, there will be no tax.”

1 DAY UNTIL ELECTION DAY

The last of seven promises that Dennis Baylor makes to the constituents of the 125th Legislative District:

As your state Representative, I’ll work to convene a limited constitutional convention, to enable the people to reform their government’s structure, while protecting the rights of the individual.

Mr. Baylor’s first campaign principle is to support Pennsylvania citizens in holding a constitutional convention.  He testified before the Senate State Government Committee to fight for a constitutional convention, and suggested reforms to state government in reaction to the illegal midnight Legislative payraise and unfair redistricting.  He believes that the public has both the right and the obligation to enact changes when they see fit, without which “they will remain unprotected from future failures of government.”  Read his March 26,2007 testimony on his website.
