PEG PAC, Pa.'s Oldest Pro-Business PAC, Endorses Jason Ortitay


OFFICE: 717-238-1764           APRIL 16, 2014

CELL: 717-574-6674


HARRISBURG - PEG PAC, the affiliated political action committee of the
Pennsylvania Business Council (PBC) and the state's oldest pro-business
PAC, endorsed seven incumbent members of the state House for re-election
- three Republicans and four Democrats. In addition, PEG PAC backed
three GOP candidates in House districts across the state.

PEG PAC endorsed:

 * GOP incumbents Mike Fleck [1] (81st) of Huntingdon County, Seth Grove
[2] (196th) of York County and Karen Boback [3] (117th) of Luzerne
County; and,

 * Democratic incumbents Margo Davidson [4] (164th) of Delaware County,
Patty Kim [5] (103rd) of Dauphin County, Jake Wheatley [6] (19th) of
Allegheny County and Jim Roebuck (188th) of Philadelphia.

"These seven House members all supported both the recent Transportation
overhaul legislation and the 'Apology' bill, a tort reform measure which
prohibits plaintiffs from using most physician apologies against them in
court," said PBC President & CEO David W. Patti. All but Fleck are
engaged in competitive primaries - his primary opponent was recently
removed from the May ballot.

PEG PAC also endorsed these non-incumbents:

 * Republican Jason Ortitay [7], a small business owner and member of
the Burgettstown Area Community Development Corporation, from the 46th
District in Washington and Allegheny counties who is vying to take on
incumbent Rep. Jessie White;

 * East Marlborough Township Supervisor and former Chairman of the
Pennsylvania Horse Racing Commission, Republican Cuyler Walker [8],
business owner and Partner at Pepper Hamilton LLP, running in the open
158th District in southern Chester County; and,

 * Former Rep. Tom Quigley, running to reclaim his seat in the 146th
District in Montgomery County.

"We believe Ortitay, Walker and Quigley will be strong pro-business
voices in the state House," said Patti, who noted that all of the
candidates also received a financial contribution from PEG PAC.

Since its founding in 1972, PEG PAC has worked to build a better
Pennsylvania by electing candidates for office who offer the best
capacity to create and sustain a better Pennsylvania. PEG PAC supports
candidates who are best for the business community without regard to
political party membership. PEG PAC supports candidates for office with
financial contributions, campaign consulting, and grassroots action.

Republican candidate announces run for State Representative in 46th District


Jason Ortitay announced his candidacy for the Republican Party nomination for Pennsylvania State Representative in the 46th District. Ortitay is the Owner and President of “Jason’s Cheesecake Company LLC,” a fundraising enterprise serving Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Prior to starting his own business, he spent just under five years at PNC Bank as a Relationship Manager and a Treasury Management Analyst.

He promises to bring leadership and integrity to the office, and to help make education, business, and financial opportunities more accessible to the people of the 46th District.

“We all have an important role to play in the development of these opportunities,” says Ortitay. “I will ensure that your voices, interests, and concerns are heard and addressed.”

      Ortitay, currently resides in Bridgeville, and is a graduate of Avella Area High School (Class of 2002). He received his B.S. in Business Administration from Robert Morris University in 2004, and an MBA from Stetson University in 2005. He is a Board Member of the Burgettstown Area Community Development Corporation, and a Committee Member of Project Bundle Up. He is also the founder of both the “Speaker Survivor Series,” which promotes several charitable causes (including cancer awareness), and the “John J. Ortitay Entrepreneur Scholarship,” a program geared toward developing business acumen in local high school seniors.
