John will fight to protect the reproductive freedoms of Pennsylvanians by codifying this right into our state Constitution. John believes that we should raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour and have the minimum wage adjusted annually based on the annual increase by the Social Security Inflation Index. John believes that we must reform how we fund our schools. We must stop kicking the can down the road, work to support our schools fairly, and stop making mandates on our local school districts without fully funding them. He also believes we must reform and hold our charter schools to the same standard as our public schools. Finally, he believes we must provide property tax relief to our communities.
