Stroudsburg, PA (November 16, 2017) – Tarah Probst announced her candidacy on Thursday, November 16, 2017 at 5:30 PM at The Charcuterie restaurant in Stroudsburg.

Tarah hosted the press, local officials and citizens to announce her campaign. She is seeking election to the 40th Senate District in the 2018 general election in order to serve the people of Monroe and Northampton Counties. She has served for two years as mayor of Stroudsburg Borough and was recently re-elected to another four year term with 66% of the vote.

Tarah explains, “I have served as mayor for two years and look forward to serving as mayor for another 4 years. I have worked diligently to bring many positive changes to our town and to our region, and I have decided to run for higher office in order to do more for the citizens of our region. We have many issues facing our region, from education funding and infrastructure to tax reform, planning and budgeting. I will continue to work tirelessly for the citizens of our region.”

Tarah has confronted and has had success with many issues including challenging the planning of the Interstate 80 widening project though Stroudsburg. She has been working with Congressman Matt Cartwright’s office in supporting the reestablishment of passenger train service to the Poconos. She has been fiscally responsible in procuring competitive bids for
borough expenses and has provided significant savings to the taxpayers. She has addressed panhandling and speeding in the borough and has implemented PennDOT signage directing tourists to Historic Downtown Stroudsburg. Tarah has promoted and supported Stroudsburg’s local news, events and businesses through press coverage and through the social media outlets she helped to create.
