Citizen activist Dennis Baylor spent April 1 touring the 29th state Senate District dressed as WAM-MY (an oversize cardboard check, on roller-skates) to urge Pennsylvania's taxpayers not to be fooled by the costliest Legislature in the nation's claims that there is a less agonizing way to fund its reckless spending.
"Harrisburg has got to wake up to the fact that the 'gilded-age' of state government is long past, and has got to quit trying to hoodwink the public into believing that there is some less painful way to pay for the most extravagant state government in America," Baylor said.
Baylor's publicity tour is intended to draw attention to two longtime Harrisburg insiders, state Sen. Jim Rhoades and state Rep. Dave Argall, both Republicans.
WAM-MY's tour began outside The Pocono Record in Stroudsburg, and continued with stops at Rep. Argall's District office in Tamaqua, state Sen. Jim Rhoades' offices in Mahanoy City, Pottsville and Hamburg and concludes in Reading.
The 29th District includes Schuylkill County and parts of Berks County.
Baylor is an independent candidate for the 29th District seat held by Sen. Rhoades.
