John’s Plan for a Better Pennsylvania


Cutting Wasteful Spending
John DiSanto spent a lifetime growing a business and finding efficiencies that helped his bottom line. As a State Senator, John has fought to cut wasteful spending rather than raise taxes, opposing budgets that spent too much. State government is bloated with bureaucrats and waste, and John has worked with his colleagues to identify and cut wasteful spending.

Eliminate School Property Taxes
Property taxes are unfair – John DiSanto has been fighting for a plan to eliminate them. When you own your home, you should own your home. The system we have now allows the government to take your house even though you’ve paid it off. Eliminating property taxes will relieve the burden of these taxes, especially on our working families and seniors. It will also boost our economy by removing a significant barrier to home ownership.

Stand Up To Governor Wolf
Governor Wolf has shown that he is a liberal politician whose only answer for the challenges facing our commonwealth is to raise taxes. John DiSanto has been a strong voice opposing Wolf’s efforts. John isn’t at the capitol fighting for liberal special interests – he’s a voice for small business owners and working families who would be crushed under Governor Wolf’s tax increases.

Creating An Environment For Jobs
As a private sector businessman all his life, John DiSanto knows that the government doesn’t create jobs. Instead it’s the hard working small business owners who create jobs in our communities. So John has been fighting hard to lessen burdensome regulations, keep the cost of government low, and make state government a partner with job creators to make sure our community has good paying jobs.

Deliver On Education For All Students
Our education system is broken. Instead of putting students first, our system has put the liberal special interests and unions first. John DiSanto is fighting to reform our public schools including changing seniority rules, reforming charter schools, and putting a quality teacher in every classroom. John is committed to supporting kids trapped in failing schools by allowing them to utilize programs like the EITC and other credits to attend the school that best educates them. John is also working to fix chronically failing schools like Harrisburg, and he was an early advocate for state receivership. John knows we need to spend more money on schools, but we also have to reform our system and the way we spend our tax dollars.

Reform The Pension System
John DiSanto is absolutely committed to saving the pension system that many state retirees count on. That’s why John supported common sense changes to reform the system to mirror the private sector and take on the more than $60 billion in unfunded liabilities.

Reform Government
Harrisburg is broken and a big problem with the system is that career politicians who do not posses any business acumen are more interested in protecting their perks, pensions, and financial compensation than they are in doing what’s right for the people of the commonwealth. John DiSanto support bills for tougher gift and lobbyist disclosure. John has lead by example by turning down the pension and the per diems, and he runs the leanest office of any senator.

Protect Our Constitutional Freedoms
As a State Senator, John DiSanto has taken his oath to uphold the Constitution seriously. John fights every day to protect our constitutional protections that Pennsylvanians value deeply.

John stands up for innocent life by fighting for pro-life legislation that protects the rights of the unborn.

John opposes useless and ineffective gun laws that do more to penalize the law abiding citizen than criminals. He has fought to strengthen penalties for violence that is committed using a firearm in order to get tough on gun violence without the normal gun control “solutions” the left advocates.
