A candidate for governor stopped in Erie on Tuesday.
Max Myers officially announced he will be running for governor in next May's democratic primary race.
He's a pastor from central Pennsylvania and is running on four major issues: poverty, education, business, and leadership.
He says it's time for a change in Harrisburg, and believes it's time for someone who is not a career politician to do it.
"I believe that it isn't about passing bills, it's about leadership and inspiring people and shifting the vision," said Myers at the Erie County Democratic Headquarters. "I believe the governor can have an incredible impact on the Pennsylvania culture without passing one bill, if he just sets the standards and tone."
Myers said he wanted to announce his candidacy early, so he could get his message out to voters.
