“I am grateful for Gov. Rendell’s continued support and 44 other elected officials from 12 counties across the Commonwealth. From school board to the state legislature and every position in between, we are building a grassroots campaign that demonstrates all levels in government are important and all counties—rural, urban, and suburban—matter.

“Since this campaign began in early October, we have traveled to 29 counties and worked hard to earn the support of these elected officials, who work tirelessly for their communities. I am humbled by their confidence in me. As Auditor General, I will continue Auditor General Eugene DePasquale’s great work, protecting your tax dollars, shining a bright light on government spending, and making recommendations for change when it is not used properly.

“These endorsements and the relationships that I’ve built with elected leaders across PA will allow for my recommendations to be taken up by those who can address the issues, and deliver results for all Pennsylvanians.”

“I’m proud to endorse my fellow Lancastrian Christina Hartman for Auditor General. I’ve seen her work up close over the last few years and I can tell you that no one will work harder for you than Christina,” said State Rep. Mike Sturla (D-Lancaster). “She shares our values of hard work, honesty, and respect, and she isn’t afraid to speak out against corruption and abuse. That’s what Christina will bring to Harrisburg and that’s why she’s my choice for Auditor General.”

Montgomery County State Rep. Mary Jo Daley commented, “I’m thrilled to endorse Christina Hartman for Auditor General in the Democratic primary. While we’re making progress, Pennsylvania women are still dramatically underrepresented in government, especially at the statewide level, where not a single woman currently holds office, and I’m tired of it. Christina has the experience to lead this crucial office, and the work ethic and perseverance to win this campaign. One woman can’t shatter Pennsylvania’s glass ceiling alone, and that’s why I’m standing with Christina. Together, we will show the women of Pennsylvania that they deserve to be represented at all levels of government, especially at the top.”
