Harrisburg – This week, the Libertarian Party of Pennsylvania (LPPA) nominated Demo Agoris (pronounced Dee-mo) to fill the seat of the late John Murtha in the 12th Congressional District. Mr. Agoris will appear on the ballot with the Republican and Democratic nominees for the special election to be conducted in conjunction with the publicly funded nomination process for the two older political parties on May 18.

Mr. Agoris, a resident of Houston Borough, Washington County, has owned and managed several businesses including Agoris Candies and Agoris Real Estate. He served on the Houston Borough Council in the 1990's then served as the chairman of a Government Study Commission in 2000. He also served as an electronics repairman in the Pennsylvania Air National Guard.

Born in Canonsburg, Washington County, Mr. Agoris believes in open government, tax and spending cuts, government reform, and Positive Leadership ( Demo Agoris states "Government is established by and gets its authority from the consent of the people. Both Democrats and Republicans are moving our government away from its foundation and working for special interests. On May 18th there is a chance for all voters of the 12th District to come together to send a message that we want government to secure the rights of the people not promote special interests, that we want government that is open and honest, and limited to its delegated authority. I will be honored to work for the Liberty and individual rights of the residents of the 12th Congressional District."

"Mr. Agoris offers real change to the voters of the 12th District" Michael Robertson, LPPA Chairman noted. "The Libertarian Party is honored to offer voters a choice in this election to change from politics-as-usual. The path of a limited government focused to secure the rights of the individual and not promote special interests is the best way forward for our nation. Demo Agoris can bring that vision to Washington DC for the people of the 12th Congressional District."

The Libertarian Party is the third largest political party in Pennsylvania and the United States . More than 200,000 people across the country are registered Libertarians, and Libertarians serve in hundreds of elected offices. Please visit or for more information.
