We need to decrease property and local tax burdens on families and seniors. My opponent voted against a 50% property tax rebate up to $1,000 for the entire district.

Deliver quality education: protect children, empower parents, fully and fairly fund our schools.

Combat record high inflation to help Pennsylvanians struggling with rising prices.

Fight for our veterans just as they have fought for us.

Fully fund and support our law enforcement.
We need to enact voter id laws to ensure our elections are safe and secure. Recent polling shows 79% of voters support this. We should expand early in-person voting, which 76% of voters support and we should make Election Day a national holiday which 72% of voters support.
I would work with representatives on either side to rectify the current unfair school funding system which my district in particular suffers under. My opponent has completely failed on this, resulting in high local school taxes.
