Tarantella Seeks Nomination For The 5th Congressional District


(click for larger)


My name is Thomas Tarantella and I’m seeking the nomination of the Democratic Party for the 5th Congressional District of Pennsylvania.

To introduce myself, I was born and raised in the small town of Renovo, Pennsylvania, located in Clinton County. I have been married 32 years to my wife, Ann Tarantella. Throughout those years we’ve have three children and now five grandchildren. I spent 22 years in the U.S. Army. During my tenure I was a member of the Rapid Deployment Force, a Paratrooper, and a Lite Fighter. I was deployed around the world and was awarded 7 Campaign ribbons, a Bronze Star, 5 Meritorious Service Medals, 4 Army Commendation Medals, 13 Army Achievement Medals, and was honorably discharged in 2002.

I stand for equal opportunity for all citizens. There should be freedom from government interference in our private lives and personal decisions. The people of the United States should feel security in their homes and safety in their streets.

I believe that a strong United States is needed – morally, diplomatically, and militarily. There needs to be more talking on our end and less fighting, at lease without more information. Militarily – our soldiers need better taken care of when at war and when home, they need medical care and should not have to try and survive on food stamps after fighting for our country.

With our current Representative I feel that I must step forward and offer the voters another choice. In order to serve the people of this district and our nation, I must conduct an aggressive campaign. I simply cannot do it without your help and support

That is why I am writing to invite you to get involved in our campaign and help make a difference. A contribution and endorsement is what I need to get this campaign going in the right direction. I need the people of McKean County to get out and vote in the coming election.

If you believe that in today’€™s world we need a government of the people, by the people, and for the people; then I ask for your support as the Democratic Party nominee for the 5th Congressional District of Pennsylvania. I’€™d like to meet with any Democrats at their convenience. My phone number is (570) 923-0209. This is the land of the free because it is the home of the brave.
