Damsker challenges greenleaf to Debate


Upper Gwynedd, PA, Wednesday May 28th— Two term Montgomery County Commissioner Ruth Damsker is a candidate for Pennsylvania’s 12th Senatorial District.  She has issued a challenge to 36 year incumbent Republican Stewart Greenleaf to debate her on major issues impacting the lives of Pennsylvanians,  prior to November’s election.


Damsker hopes that Greenleaf will embrace the democratic principle of debate which allows the constituents to assess what each candidate’s views are on any and all issues.


She would like to debate topics of interest to the citizens of Pennsylvania’s 12th Senatorial District, such as:

  1. Educational opportunities and costs for all our children.

  2. Fracking, taxing the drillers and the environmental concerns that surround it.

  3. Recovering the $3.3 billion1 in medicaid dollars for 682,0002 Pennsylvanians.

  4. Stand Your Ground/Guns Everywhere legislation and how it was narrowly avoided in Pennsylvania, by a Rendell veto,  in 2010.3

  5. Equal Pay for women.

  6. Women’s healthcare and reproductive rights.

  7. Small business tax relief and economic growth.

  8. Net Neutrality and the impact on Pennsylvania business and consumers.

  9. Gerrymandering and voter access.

  10. Comprehensive non discrimination protection.


Ruth’s views on many of these topics may be found on her web-site at


“I hope that Greenleaf will give the constituents of Pennsylvania’s 12th Senatorial District the ability to explore our respective positions on these major issues facing them and debate me. We are willing to make an accommodation on time and venue in order to make this happen.” - Says Damsker
