Thank you for visiting my website, Ruggieri for Mayor 2013. I'm running for Mayor of Lancaster because I love this city and I feel that I can make a positive difference in the lives of Lancastrians.
I have worked in this community in sales, as a manager for a Fortune 500 company, bartender and as a community organizer. I know what it is like to lose a good paying job and have to work 3 jobs make ends meet. I have been involved with multi-million dollar projects and I've had to decide whether to pay the electric bill while letting the cable get suspended. It is time for the people to be represented by someone who is in touch with the daily struggles of this city, but also someone who has experience in working with others on large projects and has the leadership ability to guide this city forward.
I am a fiscal conservative who is liberal. What does that mean? It means that I will keep government out of your lives as much as possible, respecting your personal freedoms while allowing businesses the free-market they need to grow.
I am NOT endorsed by the Republican Party.
I am NOT endorsed by the Democratic Party.
These are good things, because as your Mayor - I'll be YOUR MAYOR, not the Mayor for the Party bosses. The Democratic and Republican parties tend to look at every issue as a black-and-white decision, however I'll look at each issue on what is best for Lancaster. - Pete Ruggieri
