State Rep. O'Neill Faces Challenge from Munroe

Democratic nominee Brian Munroe seeks to unseat nine-year Republican incumbent Bernie O'Neill in the 29th district.

Voters in the 29th district have to decide one of the few contested state represented races in Bucks County.

Nine-year Republican incumbent Bernie O'Neill faces a challenge by Democratic nominee Brian Munroe.

The candidates' wives stumped for their husbands Tuesday morning at Ann's Choice in Warminster. Each greeted voters as they entered the polling place at the Keystone Clubhouse and asked for their support. 

"Brian has a lot to give to his district," said Natalie Munroe. "He's been a public servant his whole life, from serving in the Navy, as a firefighter, EMT and a police officer."

Linda O'Neill felt confident that her husband would hold onto his seat at the ened of the day because his opponent went too negative and turned voters off.

"Bernie is a good, honest politician who has always been a strong supporter of public education," she said.

O'Neill was elected to the state assembly in 2002. He formerly served as a Warminster Township supervisor from 1998 to 2003. Munroe is a former member of the United States Navy and served as a police officer for 10 years in Radnor. Both candidates reside in Warminster.

The 29th district includes New Hope, Solebury, parts of Warminster, Warwick, Buckingham and Upper Southampton.

Brian Munroe is on Taxpayer disability because he, cannot “work” (he is not retired), yet is able to walk the streets and knock doors everyday! Brian Munroe is not being supported financially by the Democratic Party. Brian is being supported by out of state (and in state) extremist who want to take Bucks County tax dollars out of Bucks County for their (for profit) schools. BRIAN MUNROE AND HIS WIFE (Blogging teacher “fired” by Central Bucks SD) HAVE SOLD THEIR SOULS TO THESE ORGANIZATIONS!!! Example: One school (belonging to these organizations that support Munroe) made a $72 million dollar profit last year off of our taxpayers and paid their CEO (Superintendent) $5 million in salary. BERNIE BELIEVES THESE SCHOOLS AND ORGANIZATIONS SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE AND RETURN THESE PROFITS TO THE TAXPAYER. This is what Bernie fights for in Harrisburg on behalf of our taxpayers and these extremist groups want Bernie out!!! *** BERNIE was awarded in 2012 by the “AMERICAN CONSERVATIVE UNION” (a conservative taxpayer watch dog group) their HIGHEST RATING FOR STANDING TALL FOR OUR LOCAL Taxpayers ***

Brian Munroe’s Lies: Honesty: Bernie DID NOT LIE on the House Floor about Voter ID. A reporter misrepresented the facts. This is why the Intelligencer did not cover this story (and Endorsed Bernie). Perks: Bernie never got a “free” state car and currently drives his “own” car! Bernie does not receive or qualify for 2 pensions. There is ‘no” loophole , Munroe does not know what he is talking about. Education: Bernie has been a leader in Harrisburg fighting for Basic, Higher, Special Ed Education funding. Bernie is endorsed by almost every major Education group in the State and again, was endorsed by the Intelligencer / Courier for his leadership on Education. Taxes: Bernie helped form a House bi-partisan “Property Tax Relief Caucus” and introduced legislation with Rep. Scott Petri to help our senior citizens.
