Public Education is under threat. I am committed to securing adequate funding for quality public education, safeguarding schools from extremist influences, and ensuring a balanced and inclusive learning environment for all students.

People are struggling financially. I will support increasing the minimum wage to a livable wage, advance policies to offset the high cost of living, and foster economic growth to benefit everyone.

Healthcare costs are too high. I will work to make quality healthcare and prescription medications more affordable and accessible for everyone.

Access to reproductive healthcare is under threat. I will fight to protect choice and keep the government out of womens’ health decisions.
Voting needs to be accessible, convenient, and secure for all those who are eligible to vote. Pennsylvania’s voting laws can be changed to (a) modernize Pennsylvania’s voter registration system, (b) require counties to provide equitable and convenient access to secure drop box locations, (c) allow counties to process mail in ballots and absentee ballots before Election Day, (d) make it harder to disqualify legal votes for minor voter errors, (e) protect election workers from harassment and threats, and (f) establish standards for post-election audits to ensure accurate election results reporting.
I firmly believe every child deserves a meaningful opportunity to succeed in school and in life, and that all children must have access to a comprehensive and effective public education. I would support legislation that advances the recommendations identified in the January 11, 2024 Majority Report adopted by the Basic Education Funding Commission.
I support access to safe, legal abortion, and strongly oppose restrictions on a woman's right to choose.
