Selected candidates relevant to Newtown Township District 5 are shown below.

US Representative, 1st Congressional District
Christina Finello Website
Christina's Message: "When I was 6 months pregnant with my first child, my husband changed jobs and his new insurance provider told me that I might not be able to receive coverage because my pregnancy was considered a 'pre-existing condition.'
"Our family’s experience has driven my passion for fixing broken systems — from ensuring veterans have access to quality care to improving outcomes for people struggling with substance abuse and mental health issues. My work has shown me firsthand how America’s health care system is slanted in favor of insurance and drug companies, instead of the people seeking the care they deserve.
"I understand that families in our district are forced to make tough choices every day — between paying for necessary health care or paying off a student loan bill or putting food on the table — because I’ve been there with my own family.
"My promise to you is that I’ll go to Congress to change Washington and put PA-01 families first again. I’ll fight to lower the cost of insurance and prescription drugs, decrease the burden of student debt, and provide real retirement security for our seniors. And I’ll never forget the community I came from."

PA State Representative, 31st District
Perry Warren Website
As his campaign slogan states, Perry is indeed a "No Flash, Just Work" politician, who has done an outstanding job for our community.
Before representing the district in Harrisburg, Perry served in local office as a member of the Newtown Borough Council for almost seven years. During his time on council, Perry helped pass bipartisan budgets, worked to preserve our parks and open space, and helped write the Borough's anti-discrimination ordinance, which defends the LBGT community from discrimination in employment and access to public accommodations.
Perry was first elected to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives in 2016. Since being elected, Perry has helped pass legislation increasing funding towards our education system and treating Pennsylvania's opioid epidemic. Perry has also fought to end partisan gerrymandering, supporting recent efforts to reform voting districts within Pennsylvania. As state representative, Perry has made it his goal to better our community in a number of ways --- by working to improve infrastructure, reducing the cost of flood insurance, and preserving our environment.

PA Attorney General
Josh Shapiro Website
Josh Shapiro is a rare public servant who has risen above politics time and again to take on the status quo and protect everyday Pennsylvanians.
As a State Representative, Josh wrote and passed some of the toughest ethics laws in state history. Philadelphia Magazine wrote that Josh was “a blast of oxygen in the smoke-choked back rooms of quid-pro-quo Harrisburg,” and his work earned him a national reputation as a bipartisan consensus builder.
Then, as Chairman of the Montgomery County Commissioners, he led a fiscal and ethical turnaround, took early steps to combat the heroin epidemic, helped the first LGBT couples in Pennsylvania marry and fired Wall Street money managers to save retirees millions. His work on behalf of victims and for criminal justice reform as the Chairman of the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency earned him the trust of law enforcement leaders from both parties.
As Attorney General, Josh has restored integrity to the office and is standing up for the rule of law and safeguarding Pennsylvanians’ rights — no matter what they look like, who they love, or who they pray or don’t pray to.
He has taken on child sexual abuse in the Catholic Church, identifying 301 predator priests and thousands of victims and spurring investigation across the United States. He has twice secured national injunctions protecting women’s access to no-cost contraception as required by the Affordable Care Act. He is fighting our country’s opioid epidemic on every front– including leading a multistate investigation into pharmaceutical manufacturers and distributors.
Josh Shapiro earned his law degree at night from Georgetown University, and is a member of the Pennsylvania Bar. Josh was raised in Montgomery County, where he met his high school sweetheart, Lori, and where they are raising their four young children.

I will fight for equal rights for all women and make sure they have the same freedoms and opportunities men have enjoyed for millenia. I will fight to ensure LGBTQ+ people are treated with respect and dignity and no longer have to live in fear because of who they are or who they love.
