efforts directly resulted in changes that have saved Pennsylvania taxpayers more
than $1 billion. Bob will bring this same accountability to Washington. Official

eldest son of the late Governor Robert P. Casey and his wife, Ellen. Throughout
his public career, Bob has been guided by the legacy of his father, and the principle
that, "All public service is a trust, given in faith and accepted in honor."
