A dysfunctional political system ruled by entrenched special interests and career politicians has saddled us with enormous debt, high taxes, a weak economy, underperforming schools, and embarrassing scandals. That’s why Pennsylvanians in droves have voted with their feet by moving to prosperous, well-run states.
Governor Tom Wolf promised us a Fresh Start, but he and the entrenched political class have done nothing to reverse course. In fact, they’ve given us more of the same by continuing the failure of Harrisburg’s tax, borrow, and spend mentality that has kept Pennsylvania BROKE and BROKEN.
In November 2017, Jeff Bartos joined the Scott Wagner for Governor team as the Lieutenant Governor candidate. In an era where the opioid crisis is devastating Pennsylvania families and family-sustaining jobs remain in short supply, Scott and Jeff are focused on restoring hope and opportunity for all Pennsylvanians. At town halls and meetings across the Commonwealth, Scott and Jeff are promoting economic policies that will help make the staples of a middle class life – home ownership, healthcare, and education – more affordable. They are also fighting for every child in Pennsylvania to have the opportunity to attend an outstanding school of their choice. Jeff is certain that Scott Wagner is the right leader at the right time for Pennsylvania, and he is proud to join Scott’s team.
Jeff is a proven business and community leader. Born and raised in Berks County, Jeff has been a Pennsylvania resident his entire life. Jeff owns a contracting company and several real estate acquisition and development companies active in the Greater Philadelphia market, and has previously served as a senior executive at Toll Brothers, Inc. and Mark Group, Inc.
Jeff and his wife, Sheryl, have two daughters, Emily and Sarah. Jeff and his family are deeply committed to community service. Their charitable work is focused on education and supporting at-risk children. In 2016, Jeff and his wife Sheryl led the fundraising to build a new kindergarten on an Air Force Base in Israel. Jeff has served on the Board of the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts and is a leader in the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia. Jeff supports the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, an organization dedicated to disrupting the financing of terrorist networks around the world.
