Patrick Leyland is a 2014 Democratic candidate for District 54 of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.


Campaign themes

Leyland has stated: "My campaign will keep this great state thriving with jobs, keeping education a priority and taxpayers at mind. Another area of importance to all is the Marcellus Shale. This area could give financial stability and create local jobs; however it must be done correctly with appropriate fees, zoning control and safe guards to keep Pennsylvania safe and prosperous."[1]
