Jonathan Tamari and Angela Couloumbis:

On the Democratic side, Michael D. Parrish, a businessman and former Army aviator from Malvern, has filed to run. In the past, he has donated money to Republicans, including $2,000 to Corbett’s 2010 campaign and a total of $3,000 to GOP presidential candidates Romney and John McCain, records show.

Parrish was a registered Republican, but changed parties in December, said his campaign manager, Jocelyn Steinberg. Asked about the switch, Steinberg referred to a statement on Parrish’s campaign website.

“There’s no excuse for shutting down the government to make a political point,” he said in a statement on the site. “. . . And there’s no excuse for failing to create a better economic environment to help businesses grow and create jobs.”

Parrish, a graduate of West Point, Stanford University, and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, heads Daleco Resources, an energy company with offices in West Chester.
