State's handling of pandemic spurred Republican Dave White's bid for governor, he says in Johnstown

When asked what inspired him to run, White said he became “frustrated” with how the state government handled the COVID-19 pandemic, specifically business closures.

“Just over the past 18 months, with the way government has really overreached and I believe has done things that they shouldn’t have, I believe they put so many businesses out of business that will never return – and these are businesses that could have operated safely,” White said. “We were all concerned about the COVID virus, but we could have opened safely, like my business eventually did.”
