Jenny Brown (Ward 2), Phil Rosenzweig (Ward 6), Scott Zelov (Ward 10) and Lew Gould (Ward 11), support Rogers in the April 22 Republican primary over challenger Lisa Paolino.
Lower Merion is the largest municipality in the 17th Senate District.
The winner of the GOP contest will take on state Rep. Daylin Leach, a Democrat who is running unopposed for the Senate seat.
Rogers was elected to the Lower Merion Board of Commissioners as an independent. He switched his party registration to Republican in anticipation of running for the 17th District state Senate seat.
The four GOP township commissioners issued the following joint statement:
"We have had the pleasure of serving with Lance on the Board of Commissioners for the past two years. We know Lance to be a principled, dedicated, articulate, and courageous public servant and believe he is the best candidate to represent our Party in the 17th District race. Each of us has been impressed with, and appreciative of, Lance's support and leadership on important Republican issues, such as promoting spending restraint, protecting private property rights, preserving the quality of life in Lower Merion and fighting tax increases. He has been named a 'Budget Hawk' two years in a row by Citizens for Responsible Budgeting.With Williams' retirement, the Republican Party has a very good opportunity to pick up another seat in the state Senate, which Republicans now control by a 29-21 margin.
"In addition to his reliable support and leadership on these issues, Lance has been a strong advocate for first responders as Chair of the Board's Fire Committee and Vice-Chair of the Police Committee. He proposed several pieces of legislation to provide Lower Merion fire fighters with valuable benefits which will also enhance recruitment and retention of our volunteer force.
"As Republican representatives of the largest town in the district, we fully support Lance Rogers because he is the best candidate over the course of the entire campaign."
Leach has had an undistinguished career in the state House and is considered the most liberal member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.
