Veterans for Mango Initiative launches

We are honored to announce the launch of the Veterans for Mango initiative which is aimed at supporting the Commonwealth’s nearly 1 million veterans. 

The Veterans for Mango initiative will be a key component for our campaign – not just because Paul Mango is a West Point graduate and Veteran of the storied 82nd Airborne Division, but because the Commonwealth’s Veterans deserve to be represented by a Governor who prioritizes them and their unique needs.

Over the coming weeks, Veterans for Mango will be rolling out additional endorsements of support from the Commonwealth’s Veteran community. Among those prominent Pennsylvania Veterans standing with Paul Mango in his campaign for Governor include:

Maj. Gen. Wes Craig, US Army (ret): "I am pleased to support Paul Mango's run for Governor of Pennsylvania. Paul has years of experience as an officer in the US Army, is married to a Veteran and has a daughter who is on active duty. He understands Veterans issues and service before self. He has had a very successful business career that followed his military service. He has the intelligence, drive, experience, and ability to be a true servant leader and outstanding Governor. "

BGen. Dave Papak, USMC (ret): “I am a retired Marine Corps Senior Officer and recently met Paul Mango, a fellow Veteran who served his country.   I’ve learned about his values, what he stands for and what he intends to fight for if elected as our next Governor, and that’s what has compelled me to engage and wholeheartedly support his efforts. I’m aligned with his priorities, especially promoting economic growth by establishing the long-term climate for consistent job creation, and his focus on our state’s large Veteran population to building strong, lasting Veteran’s initiatives and programs. In my opinion, he's overwhelmingly qualified with his Military and business background to be the leader that our state so urgently needs and deserves."
