“David’s combined experience in both the private sector and local government give him a unique perspective of what is needed to move Pennsylvania’s economy forward,” PA Chamber President Gene Barr said.  “As a small business owner, David understands the challenges job creators face in the Commonwealth.  He will be a champion for pro-business policies that will help to grow the private sector and increase economic opportunities across the Commonwealth.”

“David Rowe is a well-rounded candidate who will work hard to make Pennsylvania a prime location for employers to invest and grow,” Barr added.  “On behalf of the Pennsylvania Chamber’s broad-based membership, ChamberPAC urges voters in the 85th House District to support David Rowe in the upcoming special election.”


The Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry is the state's largest broad-based business association, with its statewide membership comprising businesses of all sizes and across all industry sectors. The PA Chamber is The Statewide Voice of BusinessTM.
