Conrad Warner Announces Write-In Campaign for 63rd District State Representative
CLARION, Pa. (EYT) – A new voice rose during Saturday night’s Spring Clarion County Democratic Dinner, announcing his intention to run as a write-in candidate in the spring primary as a Democratic candidate for the 63rd House of Representatives position.
Conrad Warner, a teacher at Keystone Area School District, announced he is running as a write-in candidate in the primary in hopes to challenge incumbent state representative Donna Oberlander in the November general elections.
Also featured during the meeting were the Clarion University College Democrats, and Susan Botzer and Wade Jodun, both primary candidates for the 15th U.S. Congressional District.
“I have spent 11 years in education, and I feel a lot of that transfers over to politics,” said Warner. “Education is about change, and it’s about progress. It’s about becoming more tomorrow than you were yesterday. I think that’s what we need to focus on as a nation. We talked about and complained a lot about politics, and we are a democracy and that belongs to us. What we need to do is take those politics back.”
Warner told an inspiring story about his arrival as an 18-year-old freshman at Clarion University from central Pennsylvania, wanting to play football and follow his girlfriend. What followed is a story is how Clarion County became his home and how his “home” supported him. He ultimately fell in love with Western Pennsylvania and decided to make this area his home.
He explained to the crowd at the Clarion American Legion how those changes helped form him and prepare him for his role as an educator.
Running a campaign focused on unity, Warner said his priorities are:
- Accountability for affecting change in our communities;
- Strengthening quality public education as the foundation to grow our economy;
- Supporting small farmers and small businesses; and
- Uniting our communities and focusing on common issues– not Republican issues, not Democratic issues– rural Pennsylvania issues.
Warner is an active community member, helping organize the Clarion County Special Olympics, and his family is also the Campaign Ambassador for 2017-2018 for the United Way of Clarion County.
He lives in Shippenville with his wife, Hope, and his daughter, Brianna.
