Bill Goldsworthy Announcement 120th District
Bill Goldsworthy will hold his official campaign kickoff on Monday, March 8 at 7 p.m. at the Black Diamond Post 395 American Legion, 386 Wyoming Avenue in Kingston. Goldsworthy is seeking the Republican nomination for State Representative of the 120th District of Pennsylvania. This event is open to the public and complimentary refreshments will be served.
Goldsworthy has been the Mayor of West Pittston for13 years and serves on such committees as the Wilkes-Barre Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and the Wilkes-Barre Chamber Government Committee. Goldsworthy has also been a member of the Pennsylvania Economy League since 1987 and in 1995 he was appointed to the Luzerne County Board of Assistance by Governor Robert Casey. He was also appointed to the Municipal Police Officers Training and Education Commission in 2002 by Governor Tom Ridge.
Bill Goldsworthy is fed up with the mistreatment of budgets and the neglect of the people of Pennsylvania. He believes a budget submitted 101 days late is unacceptable and the people deserve better.
“This hurt so many people, besides the State employees who didn’t get a paycheck, it hurt dependant agencies that deal with our elderly, our youth and our special need individuals,” Goldsworthy said.
Goldsworthy will also strive to make sure revenues from casino gambling are used toward lowering property tax with his ultimate goal of eliminating property tax. If elected, Bill Goldsworthy vows that he will not accept per diems and he will not be part of any midnight budget deals.
He believes the people of Pennsylvania were lied to concerning the gambling money and his work as State Rep. will be geared toward seeing that money is used properly to protect the people.
“I will work to install the training needed by all of our police officers for the safety and protection of all our residents,” Goldsworthy stated.
Bill graduated from Wyoming Are High School in 1972 and received his bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from Wilkes University in 1976. He and his wife, Jannet, reside in West Pittston and have four children, Brandon, Carrie, Karyn, and Aimee.
