Adam Sedlock for Congress

CHALK HILL, Pa.—February 22, 2018—Isn’t it time that we put an end to the chaos and political backbiting in Washington and get back to serving the needs of the American people? Adam Sedlock thinks so.

Sedlock believes its time to restore political sanity in Washington and therefore is proud to announce his 2018 candidacy for the 14th Congressional District of Pennsylvania, US House of Representatives on the Democratic ticket.

“Political sanity starts with you,” said Sedlock, a licensed psychologist, who is committed to leading the charge toward a better America, where people work across party lines to provide the quality of life expected in a free society.

“We cannot afford to keep sending millionaires to Congress. It’s time Pennsylvania elects someone who can relate to the needs of everyday people and understands the expectations of hard working Americans,” he said.

Sedlock grew up on his grandfather’s farm just outside of Perryopolis. He exemplifies the values, work ethic and humility of real Pennsylvanians and is committed to representing them equally.

In 2016, Sedlock ran as a write-in candidate against Congressman Bill Shuster and Republican Art Halvorson. He garnered 6,000 votes across the 12-county, Pa-9th District. He gained the respect and support of many Democrats and found that most people, regardless of their political affiliation, had concerns regarding the direction this country had turned and a Congress who had an approval rating lower than that of the President.

Sedlock plans to restore Pennsylvanians’ trust in the American Dream by shifting the focus from what divides us to what we share in common. He wants to inspire Pennsylvanians to work together to rebuild the 14th District and create communities that thrive and provide for the needs of all families.

He will restore economic security for the middle class by creating good-paying jobs; fight for economic fairness by reining in Wall Street and fixing our financial system; ensure Civil Rights by fighting poverty and protecting civil liberties and develop a health care system that provides adequate, affordable coverage to all.  

Sedlock is also committed to keeping American children safe, especially in school, and believes that an honest conversation and immediate action to fund a better system of background checks and research on gun safety is inevitable.

“We must end the rampant rage of gun violence. We can do this and still ensure the right to bear arms.  No one is coming to get your guns,” Sedlock said. “Our Congress, over the last decade, has refused to fund research in gun violence.  This must stop.  We must investigate, in a scientific fashion, the who, what, when and where of gun violence, to make an educated decision to stop this public health crisis.”

Sedlock will work tirelessly to help solve the issues that plague this country. He wants to help restore American values and lead this country back on track to being the leader of the free world.

“I will protect the values of our free society, which embraces the dignity of men, women and children regardless of sexual orientation, religion, and race and ensure continuation of a civil society,” Sedlock said.
