Residents and community leaders from around the 19th Legislative District spent an evening at The Savoy with Jake to celebrate his leadership through the district and to raise funds for Jake’s re-election campaign.
The Savoy is symbolic of the emerging new Pittsburgh. It’s also a special place forJake as the Savoy is owned and managed by Chuck Sanders and John Bettis – two community leaders who have supported Jake since he began his career in public service more than a decade ago. Jake has worked closely with Chuck and John to develop creative spaces throughout Pittsburgh to server the diverse needs of all its residents.
In the last few years Jake has brought to the Strip district more than $2.3 million for construction of the Signature Boulevard streetscape, construction of the Smithfield Street Multimodal Transportation Center, and for building an intermodal transportation facility in the Three Crossings project. And that’s just a part of the more than $100 million in funding Jake has brought to the 19th over the past decade, which is why so many leaders from throughout the district have joined together to support Jake and his campaign for re-election.
At a time when there is so much dysfunction in Harrisburg, Jake doesn’t get bogged down in the back-and-forth political games. His mission is clear: Lead for my community and get results.
We’ve come a long way, but there is still room to grow. Join Jake today in his campaign for re-election and show everyone in the district you support Jake’s leadership.
