Voting rights and I would expand voting, not restrict it. Reproductive Rights and the Right to Choose for women, I will always fight for the rights of all people. Raising minimum wage by supporting any senate bill that proposes to. Broadband access in rural Pennsylvania to bring all Pennsylvania residents access to connection. Health care and stopping hospital closures in rural communities by introducing legislation to address the concern.
Mail in voting is safe. It's been tested time and time again and the courts have stated no fraud has been identified. Legislation to place the responsibility on county election offices and allowing them to do the job they are tasked with. I would support exploring easier voting by technology use of PCs and cell phone.
Education is to important to leave to chance, we need comprehensive funding reform in order to protect equal educational opportunities all across Pennsylvania for all students.
Pennsylvania needs to lead on this topic and protect choice by realizing abortion is Healthcare and allowing women, their partners, family, doctors and their clergy to advice them. Doctors are the experts in this issue not religion and definitely not government.
