John Schlegel Candidate for GOP Nomination of 101 st House of Representatives

MARCH 8, 2022

John Schlegel, former high school teacher, coach, school administrator, and active community volunteer,
announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination to represent the 101 st District for Pennsylvania’s House
of Representatives. The 101 st has been represented by State Representative Frank Ryan, who recently
announced his retirement.

I am running to ensure that our area continues to have a strong voice in the State House of Representatives. We
must carry on with the work to safeguard that the values of the hardworking families and American loving
residents of the 101 st District are represented in Harrisburg.

Public service has always been the primary emphasis of my work, whether as an educator, coach, or as part of
my volunteer service in the community. My view is that public service and the opportunity to represent my
neighbors in the legislature would be an honor and extension of my lifetime contributions to our local area.

My entire adult life has been focused on positively impacting the lives of others and working with the residents
of our community. I will be visible and accessible to the people of the 101 st District. I will treat everyone with
respect and execute the duties of my office with integrity. Being supportive of our local leaders and working
collaboratively with them for the betterment of the constituents will be a priority.

After graduating from Kutztown University, I taught American History and coached at Northern Lebanon High
School. Since then, my experience includes working as an administrator at Lebanon High School and Director
of Secondary Education in the Cornwall Lebanon School District. I earned a master’s degree in Counselor
Education at Millersville University in 1982 and a doctoral degree at Temple University in 2000. I am a
contributor to a textbook on ethical leadership and decision making that is used at Penn State University.

My volunteer service includes chairing the 2017 Heart Ball with my wife, the former Ruth Ann Carpenter, after
a decade of volunteer leadership in the Lebanon Division of The American Heart Association. Other volunteer
activities include the Lebanon County Christian Ministries Noon Meal Program, the Lebanon County
Community Health Council, Lebanon County Communities That Care Committee, HACC’s Lebanon Campus
Education Committee, co-coordinator of the mentor initiative for the film entitled Life After You, chair of my
church’s Administrative Council and Staff Parish Relations Committee, and coach in the Cornwall youth
athletic program.

I have lived in the 101st District for 42 years. My wife and I have been married for 41 years and are the parents
of two sons and have five grandchildren.
