Joe Peters rose from street cop to serving Presidents Clinton and Bush 43 as a leader in the efforts to combat drug trafficking and battle international terrorism. Joe oversaw the country’s 26 High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) programs and their budget of $250 million, and he represented the White House with police, prosecutors, governors, mayors and non-governmental organizations.
As a Federal Prosecutor, Joe’s accomplishments include the convictions of Philadelphia Mob Boss “Little Nicky” Scarfo, his underboss, and 16 mob soldiers. This trial, conducted by Joe and four other Federal Prosecutors, resulted in one of the most significant Mafia family convictions in U.S. history. As a result, he received the U.S. Department of Justice’s John Marshall Award. The Associated Press called Joe and his fellow prosecutors the “Modern Day Untouchables.” (to learn more about Joe, click here)
Republican party officials explain role of Pennsylvania delegates
April 13, 2016
BELLEVILLE – Three individuals seeking to serve as Republican delegates from Pennsylvania’s 10th Congressional District were able to speak Tuesday night during the Mifflin County Republican Committee’s Spring Banquet at the Belleville Community Hall. A representative from the state Republican committee also was on hand to help shed some light on the role delegates play in the election process.
Mark J. Harris is running for the position of delegate in the 10th Congressional District. He is self- employed, former Snyder County Republican Chairman, former Snyder County Republican Committeeman, and currently active in the PA Ag Republicans. Mark had the pleasure of representing the people of the 10th district as a delegate in 2012 and hopes to have the honor of doing so again in 2016.
Although Pennsylvania has uncommitted delegates, should Mark be elected, he believes this is not about him. It is about being a voice for the republican voters in the 10th district. Although personally he is a Cruz supporter, and would hope Cruz would be the top vote getter in the PA 10th district, if he does not, Mark would have to honor the wishes of the voter and his first vote at convention would be for the top vote getter. Any votes after that first vote Mark would be supportive of Cruz until the end.
The delegate process can be very confusing. Being a former delegate has given him the opportunity to understand how the process works and be the best advocate for the voters in Pennsylvania.
Irene is seeking the position of alternate delegate for the 10th Congressional District. An Administrative Assistant, Irene is also the President of the SUN Area Council of Republican Women, a Director of Pennsylvania Federation of Republican Women, Sergeant-at-Arms of National Federation of Republican Women, and Secretary of the Ag Republicans. As a grassroot advocate, Irene feels just as strongly as her husband Mark, this is about the voters, not about herself. The wishes of the voter needs to be honored for the first vote, but is a Cruz supporter after that if she is given the chance.
Mark and Irene are both grassroots advocates; believe in pro-life issues, and one man one women marriage.
Cruz: “We shouldn’t be talking about punishing women; we should affirm their dignity and the incredible gift they have to bring life into the world.”
HOUSTON, Texas – Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz issued the following statement in response to Donald Trump stating that if abortions were banned, women should be punished if they get an abortion:
“Once again Donald Trump has demonstrated that he hasn’t seriously thought through the issues, and he’ll say anything just to get attention. On the important issue of the sanctity of life, what’s far too often neglected is that being pro-life is not simply about the unborn child; it’s also about the mother — and creating a culture that respects her and embraces life. Of course we shouldn’t be talking about punishing women; we should affirm their dignity and the incredible gift they have to bring life into the world.”
