I read “Smoker could see the influence growOn Sunday 16th October LNP | Lancaster The article seems to suggest that our congressman is the best money can buy. In the 11th District of Congress in Pennsylvania, the numbers were staggering!
According to LNP | LancasterOnline, Smucker’s campaign has reported raising and spending nearly $1.1 million during the current Congress. His campaign had enough to send a $400,000 donation to the Republican National Campaign Committee. I find this very annoying, if it is used to elect more representatives like him.
But there is more. The political action committee directed by Lloyd Smucker, JAM PAC, has raised $178,400, and the separate Smucker Triumph Committee has raised approximately $735,000 since 2021.
Given these staggering numbers, it is certainly understandable to me why a congressman wouldn’t have in-person meetings with their constituents. With all that money, why bother spending time with us?
Looks like Bob Hollister meets voters across the county and region, while spending a fraction of the money the incumbent spends! Hollister sure looks a lot better at representing us – and doing so in the most conservative Lancaster County way!
