My name is Jeremy Shaffer – I live in Gibsonia with my wife Stacey and our five children. I am a problem-solver and entrepreneur at heart, while earning my Ph.D. in Electrical & Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon, I co-founded a company committed to improving our crumbling roads and bridges. As a successful small business owner, I understand the importance and challenges of dealing with government regulations and taxes while growing revenue and managing personnel. As a Ross Township Commissioner and Board President, I was a conservative voice that fought for taxpayers, led the fight for common-sense reforms that saved taxpayers money while improving public services for all residents. Giving back to the community is at the core of my character from coaching youth sports to serving in my church. As a Commissioner, I earned the reputation of working relentlessly on behalf of my constituents. I will bring that same passion to serving you in Washington D.C.!
Why are you running for office? (click to expand)
Rising from having nothing to starting a successful company and creating 35 high-paying jobs, I have been blessed to live the American Dream - but today that Dream is under attack. The hope of millions is being torn asunder by a stark failure of leadership causing crippling fear, rapidly rising inflation, and violations of individual rights bowing to the cancel culture of the radical left. I'm running for Congress to preserve the American Dream for our children and future generations. As your Congressman I will fight for you, this region, and our great Country. I do want to hear what issues are most important to you as well as ideas you might have. Please reach out to me via email ([email protected]) and sign up for updates on our website (www.JeremyShaffer.com), and I hope to meet you on the campaign trail!
