Daniel Smith, Jr.

As a native of PA House District 12, Daniel has resided in Butler County since the age of 1, growing up in Zelienople and graduating from Seneca Valley High School in 1993. His 25-year career in the finance industry provided a strong foundation for working with others, ensuring departmental growth, and ensuring employees had the correct tools to succeed. Putting those same strengths to work toward the betterment of the district he grew up in for the past 44 years, prompted him to enter the race for PA House for District 12. Daniel, now living in Adams Township, believes that as growth in our area continues, our leaders (no matter what level) need to be able to work together for a common cause; ‘Building Our Communities Together’.

One of Daniel’s priorities will be on education within our area, strengthening alternative funding measurements from within in each school district and bringing an end to the stress and burdens PSSAs and Keystone testing put on our children and teachers.

Another priority will be on transportation. Daniel believes in the prospects of a county-wide transportation system. He will work with local and municipal leaders to ensure those without a vehicle (or any form of transportation) can have every chance possible to make a decent living.

A third priority will be to fight each day, side-by-side with local leaders to ensure our fair share of state taxes are coming back to us.

All this, while adhering to his final priority, which is to serve no more than 5 terms in the General Assembly.

I feel that as with any private sector job, a person reaches  maturity in his/her position around 10 years, then they move on to something new.  I feel that a person can do the same in government; to be a true leader, do all you can with the time you have, and recognize when to make way for new ideas and vision.
