Former PA Rep, Matt Baker Endorses Owlett for Primary & Special Election
WELLSBORO – Saturday, Matt Baker, former PA State Representative for the 68th District for 25 years, announced his support for Mr. Clint Owlett as the Republican candidate in the Primary and Special Election for PA State Representative. “Clint is a true conservative who will stand for his beliefs and convictions while not forgetting that he works for you, the people,” said Baker.
“I am grateful for Matt Baker’s support,” responded Owlett, “I have the energy, passion and leadership skills to represent the district. I am motivated to serve our constituents well while we go through this change. I want to see solutions to the opioid crisis. I want to see families thrive. I want to see small businesses grow. My children are young and I want to create a place where they want to raise their families. I also have life experience that has taught me how to work hard, long hours to get the job done.”
Owlett is running two campaigns, as he is the nominee for the Republican party in the Special Election to fill the remainder of Matt Baker’s term, as well as running against an opponent in the Primary for the fall election. Both elections will take place this Tuesday, May 15th.
Matt Baker was elected thirteen consecutive terms, is former Chairman of the Health Committee, author of over thirty state laws and recipient of over thirty national and state legislative awards. Baker announced the endorsement on Saturday after meeting with Owlett State Representative Campaign Chair, Ron Butler, former CEO of Laurel Health, to discuss local issues and encourage and support Owlett’s campaign.
