GOP candidate Anthony Sposato is running against State Representative Tina Davis for the 141st district House seat. Sposato spoke with WBCB in front of the Croydon Train Station Sunday to make his case.
“The reason we are standing in front of the Croydon Train Station is because Davis likes to take credit for having built the station,” Sposato explained. “The truth is she has nothing to do with it. When she was on town council, she was an impediment to having this station built.”
Davis’s voting record shows she voted against both the Croydon and the Levittown-Tullytown train stations’ construction projects.
The author and business owner made his decision to run against Davis earlier this year when she announced her decision to campaign for both her current State House seat and against State Senator Tommy Tomlinson for the State Senate seat.
“Many people think Tina Davis is just running for a Senate seat and not for a House seat, but the reality is she’s running for both,” Sposato said. “Why is she hiding this fact? If she wins, it’s going to cost taxpayers upwards of $250,000 for a special election to win an empty seat.”
The move to run for two seats is unprecedented in Bucks County and Davis’s campaign signs throughout the county only mention her senate run. Sposato and Senator Tomlinson have teamed up, placing their campaign signs together throughout Lower Bucks County.
“It disturbs me and I think there ought to be a law against it,” Sposato said. “You shouldn’t be able to run for two seats. If you leave one open, it’s going to cost taxpayers money, and it’s just typical of the blatant disregard people have for taxpayer’s money when they get in office.”
Sposato is running on his time serving on the Neshaminy School Board from 2012 to 2016, which built a new school for 900 elementary students. The board consolidated the school district, started a STEM program, increased funding for arts programs, and throughout the transition students’ grades improved significantly.
“We accomplished a lot of things. I can’t take all the credit,” Sposato said. “We got together, it was about taxpayers and students. We did everything without raising taxes and I’m very proud of that.”
