West Norriton Commissioner Announces Candidacy for Pennsylvanias 150th House District

Posted: Updated:

Former Deputy District Attorney and puppy mill prosecutor, David McKenzie, cites need for a change to the failed leadership of Gov Corbett and state legislature.

West Norriton, United States – March 21, 2014 /MarketersMedia/ —

West Norriton Commissioner David McKenzie today announced his candidacy to represent Montgomery County’s 150th House District.

Having focused on creating jobs, passing a balanced budget, and advocating for hard working families while serving as Commissioner, McKenzie wants to use his experience to address the failed leadership coming out of the Capitol.

“Throughout my career I have been a passionate advocate,” McKenzie said, “whether fighting on behalf of victims of crime, giving a voice to those canine souls forced to live in the deplorable conditions of puppy mills or working hard for the citizens of West Norriton. Governor Corbett and the state legislature have failed Pennsylvania and it’s time for a change. We need proactive state legislators who work to create real jobs, invest in education, protect women’s rights and promote sensible solutions to address the Marcellus Shale situation. I will serve the constituents of the 150th with the same passion for advocacy I have brought to West Norriton and that I displayed during my time as a prosecutor and defense attorney.”

McKenzie recently received the unanimous endorsement of the Montgomery County Democratic Committee. “David is a wonderful candidate and we look forward to supporting his campaign to win the 150th House District,” said Chairman Marcel Groen. “He is hard-working, dedicated, and compassionate,” Groen added.

McKenzie founded and is the owner of the McKenzie Law Firm, P.C., based in Fairview Village where he focusses on DUI defense and Criminal defense. His legal career began as a Deputy District Attorney at the Dauphin County District Attorney’s Office following his graduation from law school. During his tenure McKenzie’s special assignment was the Juvenile Section where he witnessed first-hand how positive reinforcement and quality education could change the direction of a child’s life.

In 2008 McKenzie joined the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture serving as Assistant Counsel. Following the passage of the Rendell Administration’s historic Pennsylvania Dog Law, McKenzie was tapped to become the lead prosecutor of violations committed under that law, fighting Pennsylvania’s notorious puppy mills.

McKenzie holds a Bachelor of Arts from Franklin & Marshall College and received his Juris Doctorate from the Dickinson School of Law. He is married to his college sweetheart Chrissy, and they live in West Norriton with their 2-year-old son.
