There are many pressing issues facing our commonwealth. They include: - state funding for public schools and how the state's failure to fund appropriately and fairly has led to overwhelming disparities. All children deserve access to a quality education. - healthcare reimbursement rates for providers, hospital closures and consolidation of services are negatively impacting patients and providers. - first responders - particularly fire & EMS - are facing staffing and funding shortages - Infrastructure needs - PennDOT staffing & funding shortfalls in SEPA is contributing to growing issues on our roads & bridges - need for gun safety legislation to help protect the community and responsible gun owners - protections for reproductive rights
I support mail in voting and the addition of more ballot drop boxes and allowing people to drop their ballots at polling places on the day of the election. I fully support the Governor's executive order to allow for people to register to vote when applying for a drivers license. I support prohibiting the misuse of AI in our elections. I also support legislation which would allow for early voting. I believe we should be making it easier for people to vote, not harder, and have co-sponsored several pieces of legislation which address that issue. As a commissioner, I supported the installation of video cameras to monitor ballot boxes because I do believe in safe & secure elections.
I am interested to see the legislation which will be driven by the BEFC report. I do believe our schools have not been fairly funded because there has been lack of will to identify a sustained funding source for our schools. It is time to create dedicated funding, make smart investments into facilities, and provide the funding necessary to ensure all children have access to the best possible education in a safe comfortable environment conducive to learning. My hope is we will soon see legislation which will put the funding in place to support our public school teachers and staff.
I would not change anything. I think it is and has been working. I would codify our current abortion laws and reproductive rights in the state constitution.
