My family has spent generations in public service. I was taught that a community is always stronger when it sticks together, and that is why I am running as the first Hispanic Candidate for Lieutenant Governor in the history of the State of Pennsylvania. I want to work with all Pennsylvanians to create good-paying jobs, improve our school system, pass a budget, build a government that works for everyone.
It is time to put Pennsylvania Above Politics!
Improve the lives of all Pennsylvanians by instituting best practices in the areas of:
Good paying jobs and revitalizing the middle class. Develop a fair tax structure. Pass a budget. Invest in infrastructure.
New funding formula that protects our schools and homeowners. Increase state subsidies. Develop and implement best practices.
Compulsory education for prisoners. Post-prison opportunities for those who deserve a second chance. Break the poverty to prison pipeline.
Our Farmers and Rural Development.
Reform our subsidies and tax structure to give our farmers the upper hand. Fix our rural infrastructure. Access to broadband and internet.
Ray Sosa, bringing a new leadership approach to PA politics
Bio and Experience
Ray Sosa has over 20 years of experience in the private sector providing support and advice to big and small companies, and he wants to use that experience to create a more efficient and effective government in Pennsylvania. He currently resides with his wife, Nikki Sosa, in Montgomery County and has lived in both Buck and Montgomery Counties over the last 8 years. The Sosa family is blessed to be expecting their first child after the primary election, in July.
For too long, the powers and resources of the Lieutenant Governor's office have been underutilized, even though Ray is a political outsider, he is uniquely qualified to serve in these positions. Ray was appointed by three different U.S. Governors to lead districts in coordinating Emergency Management and Response. Ray was Chairman of the Governor's Human Rights Advocacy Committee for 10 years, fighting for hospitals, juvenile justice centers, foster care homes, and nursing homes. For 10 years, Ray provided legislative policy support for three governors and wants to continue to do so in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania by supporting both Governor Wolf and Senator Casey during their campaigns.
Ray is currently the President for Round Hills Investments and Services, and is a career banker and insurance agent. The Lieutenant Governor serves as Chairman for the Board of Pardons, Member of the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Council, the Military Base Community Enhancement Commission Chair, the Local Government Advisory Committee, and President of the Pennsylvania State Senate. Ray’s previous appointments in the public and private sectors have prepared him for the role of Lieutenant Governor in the Commonwealth of Pennyslvania.
