A Democratic activist from Bloomfield announced Tuesday he will seek the state House seat being vacated by Rep. Lisa Bennington, D-Morningside.
Paul McKrell, former state executive director of the Young Democrats of America, said he’s running to push “for needed reforms in our state government.” He pledged “to fight against midnight pay raises, extravagant perks and bonuses, and kickback schemes where political work is paid for by your taxpayer dollar.”
McKrell, 32, is a graduate of Schenley High School and the University of Pittsburgh, where he received a bachelor’s degree in public service administration.
Bennington, who was elected in November 2006, has announced she will not seek re-election this year at the end of her first two-year term.
