Candidates for Govenor and Lt Govenor




On day one, Doug Mastriano will put an end to Wolf’s mask mandates, vaccine mandates, and his draconian covid restrictions. Mastriano will reject unconstitutional edicts that come down from the CDC and the Biden administration, and he’ll expand access to effective covid therapies.


Doug Mastriano believes government’s top job is to provide for the safety of its citizens. As governor, he’ll hold elected officials accountable for enforcing the law and prosecuting crime. If they won’t do their jobs, Mastriano will remove them.

Mastriano will support law enforcement by ensuring they have adequate funding. He’ll keep violent criminals behind bars where they belong and he’ll strengthen penalties for repeat offenders and those convicted of violent crime. He’ll also support funding for additional prosecutors in high-crime areas.

Mastriano will clean up PA’s worst neighborhoods and he won’t hesitate to assist local law enforcement with State Police and National Guard to protect law-abiding citizens and businesses during periods of mass unrest and riots.

Candidate for US Senate


As a child, I grew up just a few miles south of Kennett Square, the mushroom capital of the world. This fact was never lost on my father who would often say, “don’t be a mushroom.” By that, he meant: don’t sit in the dark and be fed manure your whole life, just to get canned at the end of it all.

I learned a lot from my father who grew up on a dirt floor in Turkey. His story demonstrated how lucky I was to be born and raised in America: the land of freedom, opportunity, and justice for all. It was he and my mother who taught me that America was the shining city on the hill and that through hard work, perseverance, and a little bit of luck, I could achieve my own version of the American Dream.

After graduating from medical and business school in Philadelphia, I operated on thousands of patients and invented a tool to fix heart valves that has saved many lives while cutting medical costs. And, as a television host, I focused on empowering individuals to take control of their own health and pursue their dreams.


Candidate for Congress

Create Good Jobs

The people of Northeast Pennsylvania are hardworking and resilient. They deserve more job opportunities and better-paying jobs. Through increased business taxes, regulation and red tape, Democrats in the House are stifling job growth and economic development. Having started and run a small business, I know how hard it can be to make ends meet. Pennsylvanians know it too, but Democrats in Congress do not.

Northeast Pennsylvania was built through hard work. By getting government out of the way, we can create good jobs, with good wages, for working people. This area was built by people like my grandfather working in coal mines, contractors like my dad building schools, or our neighbors working at manufacturing companies. I will push to cut regulations, support small businesses, and create jobs in NEPA so our children can stay here to work and live.

Stop Illegal Immigration

There is a crisis at our southern border. We need to end illegal immigration and clean up Biden’s weak border policies which have resulted in a flood of illegal immigrants. The crisis has gotten so out of control that Joe Biden and Matt Cartwright allow ghost flights packed with illegal immigrants to fly into Wilkes-Barre/Scranton airport in the middle of the night. We recently found out that Biden plans to bring unvetted Afghan refugees to rural Pennsylvania. We don’t know who these people are or what their criminal records are. Just like with the Ghost Flights of illegals, Biden and Cartwright refuse to disclose what is going on, answer questions from the public, or coordinate with local law enforcement.

We must resume President Trump’s strong border policies and demand funding from Congress to finish the wall, hire more Border Patrol agents, and increase interior enforcement.

The Biden-Harris-Cartwright agenda has failed the American people and their refusal to act has only made the problem worse. Biden’s open border policies have allowed cartels to use the border to bring in drugs that poison our citizens. We know the damage illegal immigration can do to communities and I will fight to stop the surge of illegal immigration under Biden.

STOP the Tax and Spending Avalanche

President Trump’s administration passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in 2017 which bolstered the U.S. economy, helped small businesses grow, and returned money into the pockets of hardworking Americans across the country. Democrats today are fighting to reverse historic progress by spending trillions of dollars on a socialist wish list that will increase taxes on the middle class and hurt businesses here in NEPA.

The Democrats’ spending spree has already caused sky-high inflation on many products and has increased the cost of gas at the pump to jaw-dropping numbers. I will never support a bill filled with trillions of dollars of woke nonsense and tax increases. I will fight against the Democrats proposed tax increases and push for lower taxes that will help small businesses thrive and bolster the middle class.

Improve Health Care

Every American deserves high quality health care they can afford. Democrats in Congress want to double down on the disaster that was Obamacare and usher in a new era of higher prices, less access and greater control by government bureaucrats. Socialized medicine is not the answer to our health care challenges.

In Congress, I will fight to protect Americans with pre-existing conditions, and make sure they are not denied insurance and health care. I will work to stop the skyrocketing increases brought on by Biden, Pelosi, and Cartwright’s doomed policies, ensuring every American has access to affordable health care. I believe that we need more transparency in health care pricing, and better cost controls throughout the system, while expanding options and choices for patients.

Defend Parents’ Rights and Stop CRT

In Congress, I will fight to ban teaching kids to hate one another and not allow liberals to indoctrinate students with their “woke” Critical Race Theory. CRT is used to divide students, teach them to distrust and divide them from their classmates, and it has no place in the classroom. We must defend our children from “woke” indoctrination in their schools.

I believe parents have a right to have a strong voice on what their children get taught in school. We need to make sure parents are the key decision makers in their children’s education and make sure we hire great teachers who put children first, not loyalty to a progresive ideology. From failing school districts to divisive curriculum to COVID mandates, liberals have politicized our education system and I will fight to return freedom and choice to parents and students.

Secure Our Elections

The United States is supposed to be the gold standard for democracy, and we must have fair elections to live up to our Constitution. Election Integrity should not be a blue or red issue; every American deserves fair and honest elections. Unfortunately, some liberal politicians in Pennsylvania like Tom Wolf and former Sec. of State Kathy Boockvar used COVID as a way to manipulate our election in 2020, allow non-secure mail-in ballots, and create an election environment vulnerable to dirty tricks and outright fraud.

I have fought against Tom Wolf and Kathy Boockvar all the way up to the U.S. Supreme Court over the mail-in vote in Pennsylvania. I have continued to push to secure our elections and audit the 2020 vote. I will fight to require a strong voter-ID for all ballots, and audit the vote. No drop boxes, no non-signature verified mail-in ballots, and no more rigged elections!

Defend Our Second Amendment Rights

Our Founding Fathers believed Second Amendment rights were central to preventing tyranny and an oppressive central government. Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and their liberal friends want to take those rights away. Their gun-grabbing policies endanger the Constitution and make our communities less safe.

I am a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, and I will fight to protect each American’s right to bear arms. Second Amendment protections are especially important to women, and I will fight to make sure they can defend themselves and their homes by exercising their fundamental constitutional rights. In Congress, I will work tirelessly to guarantee that law-abiding citizens maintain the right to protect themselves and their families.


Candidate for State Representative

Joe Adams is the Pike and Wayne County Republican Primary Winner for the 139
th PA House of Representatives and as such is endorsed by Both Pike and Wayne County Republican Committees.

Joe Adams has integrity and proven leadership, and is the most qualified, most experienced, fiscally responsible and trusted candidate for the 139th House Seat. His professional work experience in public education, private sector banking, and County government has had direct and constant dealings with five of the top six categories of the PA State Budget: Public Education, Human Services (Children and Youth, Mental Health, Department of Aging, and Drug and Alcohol), Corrections and Law enforcement, Roads and Bridge Construction and Repair, and Economic Development. He has implemented real solutions in all of these areas locally – here in Pike and Wayne Counties.
His most overlooked quality is one of giving so much time and effort over the past 40 years to volunteer organizations and community and civic duties.  If you want to see how much someone cares about the community and its people, just look at how they give, not only with their checkbook, but more importantly, with their time. Joe Adams’ giving is significant.  Go to the website –  to see the 28 events/groups/memberships/accomplishments.  Joe Adams has walked the walk of community service and giving… and dedicated his life to making Pike and Wayne County a better place to live, work, and raise a family.
As to Bob Beierle’s claims. Bob is the writer, publisher and distributor of his own magazine – Our Town. He can write whatever he wants, unchecked, and can misrepresent to benefit his own positions or election. 
Here are some of those Beierle misrepresentations: 
  1. He claims the reassessment was illegal and done in 2020 to take advantage of COVID-19 real estate values.
FACT: The reassessment started in 2019 and nobody had any idea what COVID-19 was then. The appeal process for those who felt the value was too high has 1,500 taxpayers getting reductions due to their legal appeal.
  1. He claims that Joe Adams was the architect of the reassessment as the Chairman of the Board of Assessment
FACT: All 4 Commissioners (one changed due to the election) voted unanimously to approve and conduct the reassessment. And Joe Adams was NOT the Chairman of the Board of Assessment at that time of approval.
  1. He claims that all Wayne County taxpayers will pay more in real estate taxes due to the reassessment.
FACT: As of October 20, 2022, the breakdown by Grandjean and Associates (the independent software company) is as follows: 17,930 taxpayers will pay LESS in real estate taxes in 2023, 
17,282 taxpayers will pay the SAME in real estate taxes in 2023 and 24,389 taxpayers will pay MORE in 2023.  35,212 taxpayers will pay the SAME or LESS in taxes in 2023. By law, the reassessment is Revenue Neutral – no new tax revenue to be generated.
  1. He claims to be endorsed by Gun Owners of America for the general election.  He is NOT.
Joe Adams is endorsed by the NRA and Firearms Owners Against Crime for the general election.
  1. Bob’s Platform is supposedly great, but has no plan to implement real solutions – If you think gas prices could be capped at $3.00 per gallon,,, don’t you think it would already have been done?
  2. FACT: Write-in votes will split conservative votes and may result in a Democrat winning the seat.
Joe Adams Endorsements:
  1. PA State Police Association
  2. Fraternal Order of Police Local Lodge #49
  3. PA Realtor Association
  4. National Rifle Association (NRA)
  5. Firearms Owners Against Crime
  6. National Federation of Independent Businesses
  7. PA Chamber of Business and Industry PAC
  8. Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation
Joe Adams is our candidate for the 139th House Seat as determined by constituent voting in the primaries and we ask you to support and vote for him on November 8.
If you are unhappy with the way things are, then tell all your friends and family to get out and VOTE RED!! That is how you stop this runaway train!  
Thank you,
Steven Adams
Wayne County Republican Committee Chairman
