McCormick Shares Plan to Shake Up Washington at Philly Event with Senator Ernst

You have to be fearless about going to Washington and making a difference’

PHILADELPHIA, PA. — Dave McCormick, a combat veteran and Pennsylvania job creator who served in the highest levels of government, today spoke at a roundtable in Philadelphia with Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa on the need to shake up Washington and ensure our government works for the people. 

“When we say shake up Washington, we mean ensure that Washington is serving the people. I think we all are feeling like [Washington] isn’t serving the people. To serve the people well, you have to care. You have to listen. And then you have to be fearless about going to Washington and making a difference,” said McCormick. 

McCormick and Ernst were joined by Philadelphia community leader Drew Murray, former U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District Bill McSwain, former Chief of Staff to the 77th Secretary of the Navy Jeremy Ibrahim, South Philadelphia community leader Josh Novotney, and small business owners from the Philadelphia area. 

McCormick’s three-part plan to shake up Washington and make government work for the American people includes: 

1. Take On the Culture of Washington

2. Rein in Federal Overreach

3. Improve Congress
