A Lifetime of Service
Ready To Serve The 31st District
Rick Coplen's lifetime of leadership and service to community and country will enable him to partner with Governor Wolf and like-minded legislators to improve everyone’s quality of life in the 31st District. Rick led in combat (Panama) and peacekeeping (Bosnia) as a career Army Intelligence officer, organized the Central PA response to Superstorm Sandy as President of the Carlisle Rotary Club, and continues to put all our children first as a Carlisle Area School District Board Director since 2015. Educated at West Point, Princeton, and Georgetown, Rick has public policy analysis and facilitation skills sorely needed in the PA State Senate.
Rick is the best candidate to defeat the incumbent and serve the interests of ALL the people of the 31st District. Like you, Rick knows that our PA legislature can do a much better job for us. Rick will work hard to improve ‘people-building’ systems in the 31st --- to strengthen and fully fund our public schools and job-training programs, create new jobs with family sustaining wages, ensure affordable and accessible healthcare, enhance programs for our seniors, and provide a habitable environment with clean air and water. Rick believes that the first question for every government policy decision should be, “How will this affect ALL our children … and their children … and their children?”
