    Dan ….. love your campaign and your message for positive change! There’s a large conservative Christian vote out there that could be a difference maker for you! Your message needs to be heard on WCTL 106.3 ….. Doug

    Mr Lauhglin,

    I got a chance to meet you for the first time today at a Veteran’s Day breakfast. Admittedly I’m not sure I’d vote for you this election. However, if you don’t get elected this time and decide to run again there are some things I think that may improve your image and how you’re perceived by the voters.

    1. Anyone can put on a Carhart jacket and take a photo. I didn’t find out until today that you actual were a member of the Steelworkers union. People aren’t going to identify with some guy in a Carhart that looks like it was just pulled off the shelf when they see him in a campaign ad. Putting yourself on a billboard showing you actually working, even if you’ve got some drywall dust on your jeans or some mortar on your hands, could really work towards showing people you’re not just some business owner but actually doing the work.

    2. The only things I’ve heard from you in campaign mailings are how you’re not going to take perks (perks that every other lawmaker takes anyways if if they don’t, it goes into their party’s election fund so you’re not saving taxpayer’s money in the long run). Why didn’t you send mailers that showed your position as pro union or your plans for the Erie School District? Again, this morning is the first time I heard about these things!

    I’m really not sure how I’d vote but I think next time you could really make yourself stand out if you do more than “I’m not taking perks and I’m not a Democrat”. I think you could really appeal to Democrats if you take a different approach.

    How are you an outsider if (from my understanding) one of your main contributors is Republican Senator Scott Wagner? I think your last ad was so horrible having that little old lady be so ashamed of Scott Wiley for negative campaign ads, when that is all you have been doing this campaign, you should be ashamed of yourself! I just want people to be honest with us and themselves, and to stand for the people not corporations and big oil.

    While I respect the fact that I’ve seen you out holding your signs for hours, anyone can stand on a corner in Millcreek and say vote for me. Would be nice to show the bad parts of Erie you care about their vote as well.

    After your debate and reading your position on the issues, you have my vote. Curious though … do you support Trump for President? I really don’t want either candidate to become POTUS but one candidate will win.

    I was fortunate to enjoy the celebration for S.O.N.S of Lake Erie at the Tom Ridge Environmental Center this past Friday. The event was great. However, it galled me to watch Senator Wiley’s pompous strut with two young blond women following him as if they were his trophy’s. I thought he was married but it did not look like it at the event. After watching your TV spot this evening, and remembering how Wiley and his ways disgust me, I had to provide me support and guarantee my vote. Please just do what you say will you do in your adds. Thanks Mark Bliley

    would like to know if you would try and make a bill that all funded cars be taken away and that no state Rep. would get any money if there is no budget passed. I think all schools should have closed instead they all got loans and out taxes are so high it’s getting ridiculous. when your on a fixed income these taxes are getting out of hand. So what will you do to get taxes down in this state.

    I had a subcontract job that changed its policy on reimbursements for auto travel. I first was paid milage to use my own vehicle, then when it got too high they had us use rentals as it turned out cheaper. Reps. in Harrisburgh may be leasing vehicles for travel & charging us for gas & lease costs, but possibly still saving us money. Maby your stand on this should take a closer look at what’s cheaper in the end. Then, please let me know.

    I couldn’t find your contact information on your website while I was conducting my audit, so I thought I would reach out directly. After running a thorough audit on your site, my team has come to the conclusion that you could be performing better in organic searches. There a few major aspects that go into a strong digital marketing campaign, and my team understands how to utilize them all. If you could reply to this email and send the best number to reach you, I could lead you through the basics in about ten minutes.

    Mr Laughlin,

    My name is Julie Hirt, I have lived in the Erie area my entire life. I have voted for candidates I felt would represent the interests of our community best, regardless of party, for the past 46 years. I attended this evenings debate to learn where the candidates for state representative stand, and while I don’t agree with all your views I feel that you have the best interest of the 49th district at heart.

    That being said I was appalled that you brought Senator Wiley’s employment of Mr. Garmin up as an issue. There is an overtone of ugliness to the current election process that I was very sad to see you partake of.

    I spoke with Sean Wiley about street violence and crimes committed with a firearm and the possibility of writing new state laws that mimic existing federal firearm laws.

    Specifically increasing jail time for certain crimes that would take violent people off the streets for longer periods of time. his reply was that, longer periods of incarceration are not effective. I spent 33 years working as a correctional officer and i can tell you that shorter sentences have no effect on inmates either. they actually laugh at the system knowing that if they plea bargain, the gun charges are almost always tossed out.

    what we need are stronger laws such as these:

    It is a federal felony punishable by 10 years in prison for any convicted felon to possess any handgun, rifle or shotgun.

    Or for anyone to possess a stolen firearm.

    Or for anyone to give a firearm to a juvenile for the purpose of committing a crime.

    Or for anyone to possess a firearm with the intention of committing a crime.

    Or for anyone to use a firearm in the commission of a crime.

    Or for anyone to cross state lines with the intention to unlawfully obtain a firearm or to commit a crime.

    All felonies punishable up to 10 years in prison.

    Plea bargains for gun crimes must stop.

    write this into State law and make it mandatory, no minimum and see how much safer you make our streets when you get elected next month.

    its time to stop hugging thugs and protect our citizens.

    I’m a fellow Republican, Army Vet, and also graduate of West Point. I’m working with some politicians this election cycle who are using my proprietary communications platform to garner as many touches as possible for the lowest cost.

    The reason they are using it to get out their message is because it combines both Voice Broadcasting $0.0075/30 sec. msg ( Lower than most political organizations rate of $0.012) and a breakthrough new technology called Ringless Voicemail which let’s you drop crafted messages into your constituents CELL phone voicemail inbox. $0.01/drop

    I’m sure I don’t have to tell you how Voice Broadcasting works. Our main advantage here is that we are less than half the cost of the common rate allowing you to more than 2x your touch with constituents.

    Can you imaging the impact of doubling your touches while not increasing you spend? Powerful advantage.

    Respectfully – If you are not using Ringless Voicemail you are leaving Votes on the table. This technology was not available last election cycle. ($0.01/msg)

    The other part of this package, Ringless Voicemail, is going to revolutionize the way you contact your constituents. We all know that most people, especially voters under 45, no longer have landlines, so how do you touch them effectively? Until now the only means of mass marketing your message to them was through the expensive mediums of radio, TV, and direct mail.

    Enter Ringless Voicemail—Listen rate 96% —$0.01/drop

    A message is dropped into a cell phone’s VM without a ring or a missed call indication. Most people can’t resist listening to a blinking VM notification so they open it and listen to your message. Ringless voicemail has the highest “attention” rate of any medium be it sms, voice broadcast, email or cold call.

    Compare that to Direct Mail costing upwards of $0.60 and you have literally 60x the reach with Ringless Voicemail. TV and radio are much more expensive and target a large percentage of the population that are not your constituents. Wasted Money. Ringless Voicemail can target cell phones by Zip code and/or use your own constituent contact information.

    Wiley started off by having a very expensive dinner party . The theme was to raise money to" launch Sean’s political career" . He has had a couple more over the years. The last thing we need is another career politician pandering to the wealthy….. if anything we need term limits. Erie Schools are getting the short end of the stick and we hear our team in Harrisburg has no clout . A Career of no clout and no action is not what we need at this point.
