INITIATIVES

"I come from a proud family that has been involved with public service for as long as I can remember. I want to represent you in Harrisburg and fight for our local communities. We need to make public safety a priority, improve our schools and have jobs that provide a living wage for our residents. I have taken difficult issues head on in the past and I know what it will take to get things done in the future. I will never take "no" for an answer."
