Trivedi Announces Third Run For PA-06

Manan Trivedi, the last two times the Democratic nominee for Congress in Pennsylvania’s Sixth District, announced this morning he will seek the seat for the third time.  Normally candidates for major office only get two tries at the apple before voters tag them as perennial losers.  Manan will attempt to negate that stereotype.  Since no other actual Democrat is running he has a great shot of winning the primary against an elephant in a donkey suit.

His statement this morning:

Manan Trivedi Launches Bid for Open Pennsylvania 6th  Congressional District

Committed to Pennsylvania’s Working Families – Building a Stronger Middle-Class

BIRDSBORO Pa – Launching a new campaign for the now open 6th congressional seat in Pennsylvania, Manan Trivedi spoke of his commitment and career to public service. As an a Iraq War veteran, primary care physician and father, Trivedi presented an agenda designed to create economic opportunity in Pennsylvania.

“This election is an opportunity for the people of the 6th District to say no to political gridlock, and yes to ideas that strengthen and grow the middle-class. As a father, doctor in the community and Iraq War veteran, I’m tired of politicians who help themselves instead of the people they’re paid to represent. As Congressman, I’ll only answer to Pennsylvanians, not political insiders — and work with local businesses to create jobs; provide strong support for public education so we prepare students to compete in a global economy; make sure we keep our commitment to our veterans and protect Medicare and Social Security for senior citizens.”

In addition to launching his new campaign, Trivedi also rolled out a list of supporters from across the region:

Wendell Young IV, President UFCW Local 1776 – “I was very pleased to hear that Dr. Manan Trivedi has decided to run for Congress representing the 6th Congressional District. Manan, a Primary Care doctor and Iraq War Veteran understands what it takes to put our nation on a path that provides jobs and other opportunities to our members and their children. Over the last eight years, Manan has been there for the people of the Sixth Congressional District and our members have returned that dedication by overwhelmingly supporting him in his last two campaigns.”

Kate Michelman, President Emerita, NARAL Pro-Choice America – “Today in Congress, women’s health and economic security are at risk because of those whose anti-choice ideology threaten a woman’s wellbeing. I know and support Manan because he is committed to defending and protecting the right of every woman to reproductive freedom and choice.  He understands that by ensuring the rights and health of women, you strengthen families and enable better control of their economic security.”

State Senator Andy Dinniman – “I’m supporting Manan Trivedi for Congress. His work ethic and experience in healthcare and the military will serve as strong assets for the people of the 6th District.”

Jake Long, Chairman of the Committee for Political Education and

Dennis Bomberger, Business Agent, BCTGM (Chocolate Workers Local 464) – “Manan grew up the son of two factory workers so he has a deep understanding and connection to the everyday lives of the working women and men of the BCTGM. We know we can always count on Manan to stand-up for our workers and their families. He will be an unwavering ally to them in Congress.”

State Representative Mark Painter – “I’ve known Manan Trivedi for years, and I’ve seen that he not only speaks the truth, but sticks to his beliefs and is willing to fight for what’s right. He has already served his country with honor, and is ready to serve us again in Washington. I am looking forward to working with him when he becomes our Congressman.”

Kathi Cozzone, Chester County Commissioner – “Chester County would benefit greatly from having Manan Trivedi in Congress. I have a great deal of respect for Manan and his service in the Navy, as a doctor in our community and as a wonderful father and husband. His well-rounded experience will suit him well as a public servant.”

John Hellman, Chester County Central Labor Council Delegate, IBEW Local 654 – “Our Pennsylvania working families work hard each and every day to make our commonwealth economically fair and strong. They deserve to have a congressman who will put forth the same amount of effort and in Manan Trivedi, we can be reassured they will.”

Monica Kline, PA Democratic State Committee, Lebanon County – “When Lebanon County was included in the new 6th district, I quickly got to know Manan Trivedi. His character and experience immediately stood out as a qualities that everyone from Lebanon County can respect: Hard work, Iraq War veteran, physician and caring for his young family. Just as I endorse Manan I encourage others to get behind him so that we can all work together to make a positive change in our county.”

Mayor Michael J. Speck, Phoenixville – “My endorsement for Congress is going to Manan Trivedi because I know he will be a strong partner for our borough. Manan understands how to bring people together to get things done and that’s precisely what Phoenixville needs to move forward.”

Cornell Wilson, Vice Chair, City of Lebanon Democrats and Lebanon City School Board Member – “I’m endorsing Manan Trivedi to be our next congressman because his unselfish service to our community and country is exactly what we need more of from our public officials.”

Stephanie Markstein, Chairperson of the West Chester Borough Democratic Committee – “West Chester needs Manan Trivedi in Congress. I fully support him because I know he will stand up for the entire community and will work to create an even stronger place to raise our families.”

Micah Mahjoubian, LGBT Rights Activist – “I support for Manan Trivedi because he believes in basic fairness and opportunity for all Americans.  He is outraged that in much of our country it is perfectly legal to fire someone or deny them housing just because they’re gay.  We need Manan in Washington to finally pass anti-discrimination legislation that protects members of the LGBT community.”

Frank Burstein, Chairman of the Limerick Township Democratic Committee – “Manan Trivedi represents what is best about Pennsylvania and our Democratic Party values.
