White Kicks Off “Less Talk, More Action” Listening Tour With Visits To Carbon, Columbia, Luzerne, and Schuylkill Counties


November 9, 2021

RIDLEY PARK, PA – Republican candidate for Governor of Pennsylvania Dave White (R-Ridley Park) visited Northeast Pennsylvania on the first day of his “Less Talk, More Action” listening tour of the Commonwealth.  On Monday, White made stops in Schuylkill, Carbon, and Luzerne counties, capping off his day meeting with Republican activists in Columbia County.

Bill O’Boyle of the Wilkes-Barre Times Leader profiled White during his stop in Luzerne County:


“… White, who launched his “Less Talk, More Action” listening tour on Saturday, is a business owner and former Delaware County councilman.


He said at each stop across the state, he will listen to the concerns and frustrations of Pennsylvania voters and businesses, and he will discuss his plans to improve the lives of hard working Pennsylvania families and expand opportunities for Pennsylvania businesses to grow and prosper.


“I intend to bring enthusiasm and optimism to this race,” White said. “I believe in the future of Pennsylvania,”


White said the improving the state’s economy will be at the top of his priority list, and he said expanding education, funding police and keeping our streets safe are also major areas of his focus.


“This campaign will provide the opportunity for me to share my story,” he said. “I intend to meet with everyone I can in every part of the state to let them know who I am and what I’m about.”


White said Northeastern Pennsylvania has many natural resources. He cited the big news that broke last week regarding a $6 billion project announced by Nacero Inc. that will eventually open a plant that will transform natural gas to clean gasoline.


“That is Pennsylvania’s future,” he said. “It will drive our economy to a better tomorrow.”


When he announced his candidacy on Saturday, White said, “Together we can put this Commonwealth back on the right track — the day when the working men and women,  parents, seniors, veterans, teachers, doctors, farmers — the blue-collar workers and the white collar workers, this is the day we all stand up and demand results.”


He said his campaign will be about “less Crime, safer streets, more funding for our police, fewer kids trapped in failing schools, more choices for our parents and children, increased parental involvement in our children’s curriculum, lower taxes, better jobs, less regulation, more freedom.”


“I am for restoring faith in the electoral process,” White said. “Smaller government, more accountability, lower gas prices, more Pennsylvania energy production, protecting life, and those who can’t speak for themselves. I’m for fewer excuses, but more results. … The bottom line is Pennsylvanians need less talk and more action.”


White said he has invested $2 million of his own money for his campaign, and he is expecting to receive more donations once he gets his message out.


”If you are looking for a candidate with a fancy resume or with decades of experience in Harrisburg or Washington, degrees from expensive schools, I’m just not the right candidate for you,” he said. “But if you are looking for a candidate who has real-life experience working to build a company, will take an inclusive, commonsense approach to dealing with the problems our commonwealth is facing, who will make decisions with the best intentions for hardworking Pennsylvanians, I’m your best choice.”


White said he is a third-generation steamfitter, with more than 40 years of experience in HVAC installation and servicing. After working decades as a union pipe-fitter, in 2005, White took his background and knowledge of mechanical systems and founded DWD Mechanical Contractor Inc.


After starting his own company, White said he helped build it from a small HVAC company into one of the “go-to” HVAC companies in southeastern Pennsylvania and employs over 80 hardworking people in family-sustaining jobs.”
