ERIE, Pa. — Pennsylvania Senate candidate Dan Laughlin signed a “no perks” pledge Friday and then challenged his incumbent opponent to do the same.
Laughlin signed the pledge at a car wash, a nod to the taxpayer paid lease cars senators are allowed to use.
Laughlin said that serving in office should not be a way to get rich.
Sen. Sean Wiley said that while Laughlin campaigns on perks, he’s focused on other problems.
“We’re focused on some very big issues not only in Erie and this region but across Pennsylvania,” Wiley said.
Wiley added that those issues include education funding, tax reform and battling opioid addiction.
“If i have a receipt or something I’ll turn it in, but it’s going to be good clean accounting like that, and I’m not looking to get rich,” Laughlin said.
