Candidate Spotlight

Lou Barletta
for U.S. Senate
(Lou is currently a U.S. Congressman)
Meet Lou Barletta

Running for the United States Senate is the last thing Lou Barletta ever expected to do.

As a kid, Lou hated politics. Lou grew up working in his family’s road construction business, but dreamed of playing centerfield for the New York Yankees. The first in his family to attend college, Lou took a break from studying Elementary Education at Bloomsburg State College (now Bloomsburg University) to tryout for the Cincinnati Reds, but was sent home when the coaches figured out that he could not hit a curve ball. 

Lou returned to school before re-joining his family in road construction. One day, Lou got a card in the mail advertising a kit for striping parking lots. For $29.95, Lou and his wife, Mary Grace, sent away for the materials and started a small line-painting business. In five years, they turned that little company into the largest of its kind in Pennsylvania, and when they sold the company, it was the sixth largest of its kind in the nation.

Frustrated with the direction that local politicians were taking his hometown of Hazleton, Lou successfully ran for City Council before being elected mayor in 1999, in a city where Democrats significantly outnumbered Republicans.

As mayor, Lou inherited a $1.2 million budget deficit. In two years, Lou turned that shortfall into a $500,000 surplus. In 2004, the White House appointed Lou to represent the United States on the United Nations Advisory Committee of Local Authorities, and in 2008, the Pennsylvania State Mayor’s Association voted Lou Pennsylvania’s Mayor of the Year.

Lou gained national attention in 2006 when Lou drafted, introduced, and signed the first local ordinance in the nation cracking down on illegal immigration. Lou’s law has served as a blueprint for other communities across the United States facing problems with illegal immigration.

In 2010, Lou defeated a 28-year incumbent Democrat to represent Pennsylvania’s 11th Congressional District. Lou currently serves on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, where he is Chairman of the Subcommittee on Economic Development, Public Buildings, and Emergency Management and has saved the taxpayers nearly $4 billion by cutting waste and reducing the size of federal real estate; the Committee on Education and the Workforce, where he has been nationally recognized for his bipartisan work in support of afterschool programs; and the Homeland Security Committee, where he has continued to lead the fight to secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws.

A father of four daughters and proud grandfather of eight grandkids, Lou is running for the United States Senate to make sure that the same American Dream he experienced is alive for the next generations of Americans.

Barletta Vs. Casey on the Issues

Tax Relief for Working Families

Working families across Pennsylvania want the same thing: good-paying, family-sustaining jobs. Unfortunately, in recent years, Americans have seen jobs leave our country and wages stagnate, while the federal government continued to take more and more money out of their paychecks. Enough was enough.  Congressman Lou Barletta  stood with working families and  voted for   middle-class tax cuts, which have resulted in millions of Americans seeing bigger paychecks, raises, bonuses, and additional benefits.   Bob Casey, on the other hand, once again sided with Washington liberals, like Chuck Schumer and Bernie Sanders, and  voted no .

Supporting Good-Paying, Family-Sustaining Jobs

Before politics, Congressman Barletta was a small businessman and job creator. Congressman Barletta first ran for Hazleton City Council because he wanted to make government run more like a business.  Congressman Barletta has never stopped fighting for good-paying, family sustaining jobs. Barletta has consistently supported removing unnecessary, burdensome regulations so that businesses can grow and hire workers. As a member of Congress, Barletta has fought to roll-back excessive, job-killing Obama-era regulations – including the Waters of the U.S. rule, which created a massive tangle of bureaucracy that threatened job creation and economic growth for farmers, home builders, manufacturers, contractors, and pretty much anyone who uses land in the course of doing business. Congressman Barletta has led efforts to find new markets for coal while reclaiming coal waste piles, revitalize Pennsylvania’s industrial base, and protect good-paying Pennsylvania jobs.  Bob Casey, however, supported the Obama Administration’s extreme anti-jobs agenda and sided with radical environmentalists over Pennsylvania’s working families. When Bob Casey had the chance to stand-up to President Obama’s attacks on Pennsylvania’s vibrant energy sector, Casey allowed the Obama War on Coal to run over Pennsylvania, killing thousands of jobs and raising energy prices for Pennsylvania’s families.

Sanctuary Cities: An American Nightmare

Sanctuary cities put every American family at risk. Congressman Lou Barletta is leading the effort to end these dangerous policies and protect American lives.

Sanctuary cities are localities which resist or ban enforcement of federal immigration laws, or flatly refuse to cooperate with immigration officials. They create a safe haven for criminals and gang members who are in our country illegally. As a former mayor, Congressman Barletta knows that no mayor in America has the right to pick and choose which laws they wish to enforce.

The first bill Congressman Barletta introduced when he got to Congress, the Mobilizing Against Sanctuary Cities Act, would have cut off all federal funding to sanctuary cities. Congressman Barletta reintroduced his bill following the tragic murder of Kate Steinle, who was shot and killed while walking with her father in San Francisco – also a sanctuary city. Steinle’s accused killer was in the country illegally after being deported five times and committing seven felonies.

When it came time for Bob Casey to stand up for law-abiding Americans, Casey sided with criminal illegal immigrants to  protect  sanctuary cities. Bob Casey even  voted against  Kate’s Law, named after Kate Steinle, which would have increased penalties against illegal immigrants who re-enter the country illegally.

Congressman Lou Barletta is committed to ending dangerous sanctuary cities and securing our borders. While Bob Casey puts illegal immigrants first, Congressman Barletta will never stop fighting to protect American citizens.
