HSUS Sara Speed Runs for PA House

My two cents- the hunters that oppose any move to expand hunting opportunity better rethink their positions and start defending hunting on all levels. HSUS is getting serious.

Sara Speed (HSUS) has announced her candidacy for the PA House.

Quote:
Huge News! Today, a true humane candidate declared her candidacy for the Pennsylvania House of Representatives for District 47 (York County)! Sarah Speed, who has lobbied for animal legislation in Harrisburg and dedicated her life to many worthwhile causes, including making the world a better place for animals, today submitted petitions to run. The citizens of that district will have a true advocate and compassionate leader who is not afraid to work hard. Help us in wishing her luck!

Won't make it. And even if she did, she'd never influence the majority of the legislature or anywhere close anyway.

Non-issue.

Re: HSUS Sara Speed Runs for PA House

If elected she will seek, with backing and lobbying from HSUS HQ, positions on G&F, Justice, and Ag Committee's.

Remember - we are only one election away from having those in opposition to our lifestyle in positions to seriously threaten it. One person can't do it. But if elected she will join others of the same mind already in office.

Is your position a short term gain - or a long term loss? Separate the issues.

Maybe one of the motivated folks here could run against her?

If you enjoy hunting please find a way to give back to the sport. Our children will thank you.

I dont live in the district, and they have only days to get their petition in for filing.

Re: HSUS Sara Speed Runs for PA House

I believe that is Rep. Keith Gillespie's seat. He is on the HG&F Committee, has served since 2003 and as far as I know, is running for re-election? Have spoken with him a few times, pretty good guy in my opinion.

Gillespie is running for re-election and now more than ever hunters need to stand with him.

Re: HSUS Sara Speed Runs for PA House

The rep. in your district does a fair job at hearing and weighing his constituents concerns.

Yep, he's the guy that got the Mentored Youth Doe Tag transfer thing going.

I don't think Sara Speed would do that?
