Gary Temple for State Representative

Welcome to another week!

One of Fallowfield’s own is running for State Representative in District 17. Gary Temple of Hartstown is a long-time resident of the Atlantic community.

Gary Temple’s platform includes lowering or eliminating property taxes, creating job opportunities by setting up liquefied natural gas plants using the shale gas formations, providing more education with emphasis on increased math and science studies so that students can participate in a global economy and be able to compete with foreign students, and strengthening our local trade schools, colleges and universities.

Temple is pro-life, believing we need to protect the unborn.

Temple supports the right of self-protection that insures people have the right to defend themselves in all situations.

Temple encourages the preservation of our lakes and water ways in order to promote tourism in our area.

Temple supports local businesses along with all types of farming including dairy, beef, chicken, pork, grain and seed producers.

Most importantly, based on his lifelong experiences, Temple wants to be a voice for the entire 17th District.

I have known Gary since childhood. He is running on the Republican ticket against Parke Wentling of Greenville. Both are vying for Representative Michele Brooks’ seat. She is running for State Senator in light of Bob Robbins’ retirement.
