Bill McSwain speaks to crowd of Johnstown activists: “I will get the government off your back”

Johnstown, Pa. — Bill McSwain today visited Johnstown to speak with local Republican activists about issues facing their community. Also in attendance were former Chairman of the Pennsylvania Republican Party Rob Gleason and Cambria County Republican Party Chairwoman Jackie Kulback. The stop marked McSwain’s third day of campaigning since officially announcing his bid for Governor of Pennsylvania on Monday. Addressing a crowded room, McSwain explained his plan to lower crime rates, restore public faith in election integrity, and repeal burdensome regulations and government mandates: 

We will revive Pennsylvania’s economy by cutting taxes for working families, supporting small businesses, reducing regulations and cutting wasteful government spending. We’re going to promote our energy industries instead of trying to regulate them to death. We’re going to get the government off of your back.

In his introductory remarks, Rob Gleason applauded McSwain’s dedication to constitutional liberties: 

Bill is a leader who is not afraid to make tough decisions, and will never waiver in his defense of our constitutional rights. As governor, Bill will support our beliefs and support law and order in Pennsylvania


Appointed by President Trump, McSwain’s record as US Attorney demonstrates his fierce defense of constitutional rights, dedication to upholding law and order, and history of putting criminals and corrupt politicians in jail. 

Prior to becoming an attorney, Bill served as a scout/sniper platoon commander in the U.S. Marine Corps. He was born in Philadelphia and raised in Chester County, where he lives today with his wife, Stephanie, and their four children.
