The only medical professional in the race, Gary wants to fix our broken health care system and ultimately establish universal health care coverage. It is time we speak truth to power, including to the health care industry and the pharmaceutical industry.
Supporting our Urban Core
Gary Wegman is running for Congress because he believes we cannot afford the politics as usual that led to the gridlock and bad ideas in Washington which left so many in our region behind while people, small businesses, and entire communities fell through the cracks even as those at the top kept prospering.
Jobs and Economic Investment
Gary understands the difference a good-paying job can make in one life, in one family, and in one community. He is committed to not only increasing the number of jobs in our country and in our region, but making sure a good day’s work earns a good day’s pay.
Supporting Small Business
Gary is the only small business owner in the race. He understands the unique role small businesses play creating jobs and building our economy.
Budget and Taxes
The only small business owner in the race, Gary has balanced budgets, made payroll, and understands the relationship between incoming revenue and outgoing expenses.
The Trump/Smucker Agenda
Gary is running for Congress to take the tough stands that will move our country forward and elevate our region and our communities; but to accomplish that we must work together – we must all be willing to demand something better than just more of the same.
Our nation is a nation of immigrants. Our diversity is what makes us strong, helps us innovative, and fuels the economic engine that powers our country.
Farms and Agriculture
Gary lives the values he learned on the farm growing up, in Lutheran Sunday School, and as a Boy Scout: hard work, fair play, and an equal opportunity to succeed. Those are the values he instilled in his children raising them in Reading, the values he practices today as a businessman and farmer, and those are the values he’ll take with him to Congress.
Environment and Green Thinking
We have a responsibility to preserve our planet from one generation to the next in a sustainable manner. Conservation is more than just an issue for hunters and anglers, it should be an issue for all of us.
Transportation and Infrastructure
Gary knows that adequate transportation and infrastructure are critical for the growth of our regional economy.
