People Above Politics

Litz brings Local Government, Small Business, and Conservation Experience to the Table.

   Jo Ellen is a 5-term Lebanon County Commissioner who is the Boots on the Ground for local government implementing programs to Protect Children, Serve Families, Secure Justice, Manage Emergencies, and Safeguard Elections.  In short, Commissioner Litz Safeguards the Public Trust.

Whether it was the 2004 Campbelltown Tornado, Tropical Storm Lee in 2011, Jonas 30" Snowstorm 2016 , or the Summer Storm of 2018,

I've been here for you.

Litz was elected by her peers from across the state of Pennsylvania to serve as the 2012 president and 2013 chairman of the Board for the statewide commissioner's association. 

Litz is about starting a conversation from public structures like roads and bridges, water and sewer, schools, and energy.  A sound infrastructure is the basis of a sound economy.  Litz believes we need these Economy Boosting Jobs to put money into the pockets of people so that they can buy homes, cars, and goods.  Litz supports a transportation plan to make our roads and bridges safe.  In this way, we will create good paying jobs, get people to these jobs, our goods to market, and children to schools. 

Jo Ellen served as the chair of the MPO (2012-15)--Metropolitan Planning Organization for Lebanon County--where she helps to prioritize local road and bridge projects with PennDOT and the Federal Highway Administration. 

Keep Litz doing the People's Business.

A person can never rest on their laurels and expect people to vote for them.  They have to ask for your vote, and I respectfully ask for your vote.  Contacting voters in person is not always possible.  It takes mailers, phone calls, signs, and media to communicate a message.  This is where you can help.  If youíve been around politics, you know that Iím going to ask you for money. So here goes.  Please consider writing me a check for $5, $50, or $500 every month between now and the election.   This way, it might work into your budget better and give me a steady stream of donations to print door-to-door literature, reserve media buys, order signsÖ.  You can use PayPal to donate from my web site.  If you want to do more financially, Iím looking for 100 friends to each commit to  raising at least $10,000 for me.  Please think about it, and let me know if you are able help at this level. 

Thank you for your support!


To donate online using PayPal, please click on the Donate button (to the left) or if you prefer, send a check to Team Litz, 2302 Guilford St., Lebanon PA  17046.  In addition, the law requires that I document certain donor information.  Therefore, please also complete and submit the form below either by copying and pasting the "form" into an email or printing it out to complete and send along with your check.  Thank you!
