ChamberPAC Endorses Todd Polinchock for 144th House District

HARRISBURG - ChamberPAC, the political arm of the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry, today announced its endorsement of Todd Polinchock for state representative of the 144th House District.  Polinchock, a Republican, is vying for the seat currently held by retiring Rep. Kathy Watson.  The 144th House District consists of parts of Bucks County.

 

“Todd Polinchock’s diverse career experience will allow him to bring a unique and fresh perspective to Harrisburg,” said PA Chamber President and CEO Gene Barr.  “A core tenant of his campaign platform focuses on growing Pennsylvania’s economy by cutting burdensome regulations; implementing performance-based budgeting and helping to address the state’s unsustainable public pension deficit.  His business and leadership knowledge will make him a great asset in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.”

 

A graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, Polinchock has had a long and distinguished career in the United States Navy.  A Desert Storm Combat Pilot, he retired as a Navy Commander after 20 years of service.  In addition to his naval career, Polinchock also has extensive experience in the private sector working as a realtor.  He is a former president of both the Pennsylvania Association of Realtors (2016) and the Bucks County Association of Realtors (2009).  In 2010, Polinchock was recognized as the Bucks County Realtor of the Year. 

 

This year, each of the 203 seats in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, as well as 25 of the 50 state Senate seats, will be up for election.  More information about ChamberPAC, including a complete list of its 2018 legislative endorsements, can be found on the PA Chamber’s website.
