Fryburg Man Seeks District 12 House Seat

| February 17, 2019

CLARION COUNTY, Pa. (EYT) – Clarion County resident Robert Noerr will seek the Republican nomination for the 12th Congressional seat in the United States House of Representatives.

A special election will be held on May 21, 2019, to fill the remainder of the term for Pennsylvania’s 12th congressional district in the United States House of Representatives for the 116th United States Congress. Tom Marino, a Republican, resigned from office effective January 23.

Noerr, 34, of Fryburg, currently works in the home health care field for InVision Human Services.

He is a graduate of the Clarion University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Liberal Arts and received a Master’s degree in Speech Communication from Tiffin University.

“I am running because I feel the regular people’s voices are not being heard enough In Washington,” said Noerr in a release issued Saturday. “I am not wealthy or well connected, but I have a great understanding of policy and how it affects the everyday lives of the average constituent in District 12 and other areas of the country.”

“I believe the United States is the greatest country in the history of the world because it was founded on the idea of the individual and personal liberty. My generation has been blessed to have such great ones come before me, that sacrificed so much to continue to make this the greatest country in the world, and I feel we as a country are losing sight of that. I want to get our government back to focusing on the Constitution and the concept of personal liberty, while ending the corruption that has led to normal everyday Americans in District 12 and the rest of the country having their voices overshadowed by unelected bureaucrats and interests that can buy influence.”

Noerr says he’s not running to “have a career or gain status,” but to serve District 12 and the country.

“My story is interesting because I am young, and quite possibly the financially poorest person to be running for Congress in recent memory, having never made over 15 dollars an hour my entire life,” said Noerr. “Despite that, I am refusing to take money from big businesses, and will instead rely only on small donations from individuals. I also view being a congressperson as a service, and not a career. That is why I will be doing things such as refusing to accept a taxpayer-funded pension, if I win, and advocating for term limits.”

Noerr is a member of the Clarion County Republican Committee and the Fraternal Order of Eagles in New Bethlehem.

Although Noerr is a resident of Clarion County, which is not part of the 12th Congressional District, he plans to move to the district, if he wins.
