Description of office: The US Constitution requires that the House of Representatives be composed of Representatives from each state, elected in proportion to population. There are 435 members of the House of Representatives, with 17 Representatives allotted to Pennsylvania after the 2020 census. A US Representative must be at least 25 years old, have been a citizen of the United States for the past seven years, and be a resident of the state they seek to represent at the time of the election (though not necessarily the same district). The House of Representatives is responsible for introducing and voting on bills, resolutions and amendments, and for approving the budget. Representatives also serve on various policy committees. The House may send Articles of Impeachment of elected officials to the Senate and elects the President if there is a tie in the Electoral College.Term: 2 yearsSalary: $174,000Vote for ONE.

You deserve a Representative in Congress who will fight for your freedoms and work hard to make life more affordable for everyone. Women must be able to make their own health care decisions with their doctors. In Congress, I will fight to ensure the protections guaranteed under Roe are once again the law of the land. Big Pharma and insurance companies have jacked up prices and put lives at risk. I will fight for high-quality, affordable health care. Central Pennsylvanians also deserve a Representative who will advocate for policies that create good-paying jobs, and support our hard-working families with a living wage. You should never have to decide between putting food on the table or paying for the care you need.
When our elected leaders vote in accordance with their benefactors, instead of those they represent, it is hard for government to function. I’ve prioritized discussing the outsized role that money plays in politics at nearly every juncture of my campaign. On top of taking money out of politics, we need to prioritize bipartisanship and collaboration. Too often, gridlock and partisanship have paralyzed Congress, preventing meaningful progress on the issues that matter most to voters. Scott Perry has time and again been the only member of Congress from Pennsylvania – in either party - to vote against bipartisan legislation that would move our country forward. I will do the opposite.
Any effort to undermine the right to vote is an affront to the core principles of our country. Given Congressman Perry’s efforts to overturn our votes in the 2020 election, voting rights and democracy will be central issues in this election. I stand firm in opposing all forms of voter suppression, intimidation, and restrictions on ballot access. In Congress, I will use my position to actively work toward expanding voting opportunities in Pennsylvania. It is vital that every voice is heard — and that our government truly represents the diverse perspectives and needs of all of us.
The US is a leader on the global stage in addressing international conflicts and humanitarian crises. Our leadership must set the tone for international cooperation through aggressive diplomacy. We should continue to promote peace, stability, and prosperity globally. The US has an important role in global economic policies and diplomatic relations, which also have a real impact on the price we pay for a gallon of gas or milk at home. The impact of international challenges must be considered not only on the global stage, as we work toward lowering the cost of living here in Pennsylvania.
