Letter: Griffin Can Take the 12th District to the Head of the Class

on September 28, 2020 4:45 AM

Ahh, report cards. We all remember those, right?  While some might like to forget, it’s fair to say there’s value in knowing how we measure up. 

GovTrack.us, a nonpartisan website, tracks legislation in the U.S. Congress so the public can see how their representative measures up.  With elections just six weeks away, just what kind of job has Fred Keller done representing the needs of our 12th district in Washington

Here are highlights from Fred Keller’s 2019 report card. 

Percentile rank comparing all representatives serving during the same time:

•  Number of bills co-sponsored, indicating a willingness to work with others:  4th percentile.
•  Number of bills introduced:  2nd percentile.
•  Number of bills introduced that became law:  0 percentile.
•  Number of bills that got out of committee:  0 percentile.
•  Number of co-sponsors for a bill:  10th percentile.
•  Number of powerful co-sponsors for Keller’s bills:  0 percentile.
•  Number of bipartisan bills, reflecting working across the aisle:  3rd percentile.
•  Number of leadership positions held:  0 percentile.

If we want to go to the head of the class, we need a representative who quickly learns how to get things done, serves ALL constituents, regardless of party, builds relationships on both sides of the aisle, and focuses on the right solutions to the right problems. 

Lee Griffin, the Democratic candidate for PA’s 12th, has the qualities needed to be an effective legislator. 

Lee Griffin, a native rural Pennsylvanian with a proven work ethic and a stellar academic record, will provide the leadership we need and deserve.
