Dush Takes Oath of Office; Mission Begins on Day One

Dush010615SwearingInDay01HARRISBURG, Pa. – Joined by family, friends and supporters, State Rep. Cris Dush (R-Jefferson/Indiana) was officially sworn into office Tuesday at the state Capitol to begin his first term in the General Assembly serving the people of the 66th Legislative District.

“Taking the oath of office was the thrilling culmination of well over two years of hard work by hundreds of grassroots supporters, many of whom were here to witness this special occasion,” said Dush. “The celebration is over and the mission of serving and keeping my word to the people of the 66th District starts now.”

Dush, who continues to serve as a senior non-commissioned officer with the Pennsylvania Air National Guard and has previously served his country and his Commonwealth with both the U.S. Air Force and the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections, reiterated his commitment to hitting the ground running as a newly elected state lawmaker.

“The responsibility of the Legislature is to put forth legislation that the people want and need, and to do so in an effective and efficient manner,” said Dush. “Effectively governing on behalf of the people of this Commonwealth starts with advancing commonsense legislation that addresses Pennsylvania’s multi-billion dollar pension crisis, completely removes the state from the unconstitutional role of commercial liquor sales, and eliminates the inherently corrupt practice of collecting union membership dues at taxpayers’ expense.”

“The talking heads can carp all they want about how we should wait for Tom Wolf to the set the agenda for the new legislative session, but the governor’s primary job is to manage and enforce the law, not create it,” said Dush. “Setting the tone for what laws are going to be put forth in order to restore our Commonwealth to its rightful place of preeminence is the job of the Legislature. We must immediately seize the opportunity to demonstrate to the people that we are ready, willing and able to complete the mission they have sent us here to accomplish.”

The 66th Legislative District includes all of Jefferson County and the Indiana County communities of Banks, Canoe, East Mahoning, Grant, Green, Montgomery, North Mahoning, Rayne, South Mahoning and West Mahoning townships and Cherry Tree, Ernest, Glen Campbell, Marion Center, Plumville and Smicksburg boroughs.
