Delco United endorses Krueger-Braneky in the 161st Special Election

Delco United endorses Krueger-Braneky in the 161st Special Election


The Steering Committee of Delaware County United for Sensible Gun Policy is excited to announce that Delco United is endorsing Leanne Krueger-Braneky (D) for State Representative in the Pennsylvania 161st House Legislative District.

A special election will be held in the 161st district on Tuesday, August 4, 2015 to replace former State Representative Joe Hackett (R), who resigned from office in April of 2015.

Ms. Krueger-Braneky is a strong gun sense candidate who supports Delco United’s entire legislative agenda that calls for comprehensive background checks on gun sales, mandatory reporting of lost and stolen firearms; banning military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and limiting the purchase of handguns to one per month.

“As a mother, I am committed to keeping all Pennsylvania children safe from gun violence. The above legislation [endorsed by Delco United] represents common sense solutions to curbing the epidemic of gun violence that plagues our nation and devastates communities. As the next Representative of the 161st Legislative District, I will stand up for these proposals and take a stand against the NRA.”
