February 23, 2014 - Democratic gubernatorial candidate John Hanger met with members of the community at the Erie County Democratic Headquarters Sunday evening to make his case as to why he is the best person for the job.

Hanger discussed many topics, but education, job creation, and the legalization of marijuana are some of the top issues he's campaigning on.

He says he wants to restore funding into public schools and put an end to funding failed charter schools.

Hanger says he wants to restore freedom in the commonwealth: meaning he supports women's rights, marriage equality, and again, legalizing marijuana.

Hanger is one of eight democratic candidates looking to unseat Governor Tom Corbett.
