Jason Richey is a fighter. Born and raised in Aliquippa, he experienced the downturn in the town’s fortunes when the steel mills closed. A stand out student and athlete, Jason was a 3-time Academic All-American wrestler at Allegheny College – becoming just the third wrestler in school history to earn 100 wins.
After college, Jason worked in the steel mills to pay for law school. He joined K&L Gates LLP in 1996 and quickly rose through the ranks, becoming a partner by representing large and small manufacturing and energy companies. He has also worked to uncover government corruption and procurement irregularities throughout the country.
Now Jason wants to take that drive, work ethic and experience to Harrisburg to lead the Great Pennsylvania Comeback.
