In my view, the most pressing issues facing Pennsylvanians are income inequality and lack of access to an equitable education for all. We need to raise the minimum wage so work has more value. Every one of PA’s neighboring states has a higher minimum wage. The free market has spoken on this issue and PA needs to join in this too. Secondly, a child’s zip code should not determine the quality of their education. We need to infuse more funding into schools that have been chronically underfunded so they can afford modern textbooks, computers, and great teachers. We also need to address the capital needs of school districts so kids aren’t attending schools racked with lead and asbestos. We have the resources to make these things a reality.
I would love to see pre-canvassing which would allow counties to tabulate and count mail-in votes as they come in. That would ensure a much faster process of getting election results out more quickly and cast less doubt on our voting operations. We should pay election workers more money and have a uniform standard based upon the cost of living in different regions of PA. We should also allow state workers to serve in certain capacities on Election Day, maybe they couldn’t serve as the Judge of Elections but they could be a poll worker or have another job. They already have the day off and I think this could expand our pool of election workers.
I would support legislation that establishes a Redevelopment and Capital Assistance Program for school buildings and facilities. In addition, I think we should do a bond issue for the billions of dollars that we have short-changed school districts over decades. We need to drive that funding out particularly to the most under-resourced schools and provide targeted tax relief to people (especially older Pennsylvanians) so it’s easier to stay in their homes.
I do support a bill that would get rid of onerous regulations that were passed more than 10 years ago which severely limited the number of abortion providers we have in the state. Abortion is healthcare and access to abortion is critical to ensuring the health of women across the commonwealth. I also favor legislation that shields women who seek to have an abortion in PA from prosecution in other states.
