TCI-PAC today gave its strong endorsement to incumbent Auditor General Eugene DePasquale as he seeks reelection to that post.

“As a statewide candidate, and before that as a legislator, General DePasquale has been a strong voice for a modern transportation system in Pennsylvania,” said Mark Snyder, chairman of the Transportation Construction Industry Political Action Committee (TCI-PAC) and president/CEO of the Mid-Atlantic Group of Oldcastle Materials. “We’re pleased to endorse his bid for reelection.”

DePasqualep2APC executive vice president Bob Latham reiterated that, “in 2012, General DePasquale was a leading statewide official calling for the passage of comprehensive transportation funding legislation.  The bill (Act 89) eventually was signed into law by Governor Tom Corbett. Mr. DePasquale’ s support demonstrated the bi-partisan nature of the proposal.”

TCI-PAC representatives joined the PEG-PAC representing the statewide business community organization, Pennsylvania Business Counsel in today’s announcement.
