February 18, 2014 - Pennsylvania state representative Brandon Neuman, democratic candidate for lieutenant governor, visited Erie this afternoon for a meet and greet at the Bayfront Convention Center.

The event was organized by 3rd district representative Ryan Bizzarro and Erie city councilman Bob Merski.

Neuman, a legislator for the 48th district since 2010, is an attorney by trade.

Neuman said in his time working for the state legislature, he's been able to forge good relationships on both sides of the aisle.

His number one priority: education.

"We have to prepare our next generation for the global market," Neuman said.

The spring primary is May 20th.
