Pennsylvania’s Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman has been a voice for change in his state since his first successful bid for local office in 2011. As he ran for reelection in 2018, he was unbridled and could be said to have unleashed a power long dormant in the Keystone state. In a recent interview, Fetterman was unafraid to express his controversial opinions.
John Fetterman has championed progressive causes ever since he burst onto the scene. He has pushed for fair wages, a higher minimum wage, medical marijuana, the abolition of the death penalty, and criminal justice reform. His impact on the state of Pennsylvania even beyond the political realm has been immense and he appears to embody a spirit of change.
When asked about his remarkable rise to power, Fetterman reflected, “I’ve already been dead once.” The Lieutenant Governor is referring to his near-fatal car crash back in 2015 that he believes gave him a new perspective on life. “Life is precious,” says Fetterman, “I’m here by the grace of God. I have a duty to make the world a better place.”
John Fetterman has certainly taken that to heart and his passion for making positive change does not show any signs of abating. He has been lauded by friends and foes alike for his willingness to speak his mind, his enthusiastic willingness to engage in dialogue, and his steadfast commitment to the social and economic issues he feels passionately about.
The Lieutenant Governor’s remarkable journey from small-town mayor to a political powerhouse in the state of Pennsylvania is a testament to his passion, resolve, and dedication to doing what’s best for his constituents. Even those who disagree with his politics can still recognize his impressive traits. “I’ve already been dead once,” John Fetterman says, “I have a duty to make the world a better place.” Clearly, Fetterman certainly takes that to heart.
