The most pressing issues facing Pennsylvanians are affordable housing, accessible and affordable healthcare, and equitable funding for public education.

The housing crisis has reached alarming levels, requiring urgent action through comprehensive housing policies to curb speculative practices and promote affordable housing and mixed-income neighborhoods.

Our healthcare system, marked by exclusion, inefficiency, and price gouging, highlights the need for a single-payer system for affordability and accessibility.

Additionally, our school districts are underfunded by the state, relying heavily on homeowners to make up the deficit. It is crucial to ensure fair funding for our schools to provide quality education for all students.
As a State Representative, I would support same-day voter registration at polling places on Election Day. I would also endorse legislation to make Election Day a legal holiday in Pennsylvania and ensure that essential workers have time off to vote. Additionally, I support expanding access to secure ballot drop boxes, which are already standard in many counties in PA. This would provide early voters with an alternative to mailing their ballots. Finally, I would oppose any attempt to disenfranchise marginalized communities through voter ID laws without providing free, easily accessible IDs to all eligible voters.
I would review the Basic Education Funding formula to ensure that public schools in the 41st district and all of Lancaster County receive their fair share. I support legislation that reduces reliance on property taxes by correcting the funding disparity that currently allows Pennsylvania to pay 10% less into K-12 education than other states. It is essential to enhance transparency in the allocation of these funds and track their impact on student outcomes. This will enable us to accurately assess the damage caused by decades of inequitable funding and determine the best ways to support schools and students who are struggling as a result.
All people should have the rights, freedoms, and opportunities to control their lives at the most basic level, including their bodies and their healthcare choices, and I would fight ANY attempt to take those healthcare choices out of the hands of individual Pennsylvanians and put them into the hands of lawmakers. We need to pass laws that respect, support, and empower people, ensuring that everyone has access to the care they need, including a full range of reproductive healthcare services and contraception options. I would support a single-payer healthcare system that fully covers reproductive healthcare and I would oppose any attempt to pass burdensome regulations designed to limit people’s reproductive choices.
