September 05, 2014 | By Krystal Bonner

Former 130th district representative Dave Kessler has unfinished business. Over the past three years, he's watched his district suffer from Governor Corbett and Harrisburg Republicans' misguided policies that pinch local communities and benefit wealthy corporations. Now, he's running to reclaim his Berks County seat to help rebuild a strong Pennsylvania middle class, strong schools, and a strong workforce.

Before serving as representative, he spent 18 years as an Oley Township supervisor and 15 years as a member of the township's planning commission.
