Campaign themes


Hearn's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Business & Job Growth

  • Excerpt: "As your state senator, Zack will heavily advocate for the reduction of the CNI to make Pennsylvania an attractive location to relocate or expand business."

Education & Property Taxes

  • Excerpt: "As state senator, Zack would approve tax structures that would support local control of school districts while limiting the overall impact upon the most vulnerable of the district’s residents. He would provide consideration to results derived from a study regarding county consolidations, however, he supports the belief of local control. By implementing a lower CNI and pro-business tax policies, Zack believes some relief to property tax concerns could occur through the introduction of new business in a school district causing a reduction of school tax burden on the individual property owner."

Pension Reform

  • Excerpt: "As state senator, Zack would encourage passage of legislation to eliminate the current retirement structure for future employees and replace it with a 401 (k) style of retirement system."


  • Excerpt: "With four years of employment as an advocate for veterans’ benefits at the national level, Zack has a firm understanding of concerns that face the millions of veterans nationwide. As state senator, he will continue to support the efforts of the veteran community and their dependents."

2nd Amendment

  • Excerpt: "I am a member of the National Rifle Association (NRA). It is evident within both the United States and Pennsylvania Constitutions that this is a right for its citizens. Additionally, I do not believe that there should be a strengthening of gun laws; instead, I feel that the government should enforce the thousands of laws that already exist."
