Today, State Representative Aaron Bernstine formally endorsed incumbent mayoral candidates Anthony Court of Ellwood City and George Quay of Beaver Falls. Both Court and Quay will be on the Democratic ballot in the primary election to be held on May 16th. Both mayors are also seeking write-in votes to secure positions on the Republican ticket for the general election in November.
Representative Bernstine touted Mayor Courts’ integrity and commitment to marketing Ellwood City to employers. “Immediately after I took office, Mayor Court contacted me to express his support of my plan to bring new jobs to Ellwood City. He is a man with high integrity who works tirelessly for his residents, and I am proud to partner with him to lean forward and bring new, high-paying jobs to the good people of Ellwood City.”
Representative Bernstine also highlighted the work Mayor Quay has done in Beaver Falls to attract new businesses. “Mayor Quay and I are working together, reaching out to prospective employers and encouraging them to consider Beaver Falls for their businesses. In fact, the major development project that was recently announced is primarily due to Mayor Quay’s leadership, and it alone will bring hundreds of jobs to the city. I’m very excited to continue working with Mayor Quay, to build on the strong economic foundation he has established for Beaver Falls.”
While both mayors are registered Democrats, Rep. Bernstine stated that positive results are more important than party affiliation. “My focus has always been on “good government”, regardless of party affiliation. Mayor Court, Mayor Quay and I are all committed to acting on the most important thing I promised during my campaign: to bring great jobs and opportunities to our communities. Working across party lines to achieve a common goal is the way our government is supposed to work. I’m endorsing Mayor Anthony Court and Mayor George Quay because they understand that working together to serve our constituents should be our top priority”.
