Candidate Name: Judi Reiss
What office are you running for?
Pennsylvania 1st Congressional District
With which party are you running for office?
Primary: April 28, 2020; General: November 3, 2020
Why are you running for office?
I’m tired of Washington prioritizing profits over our families. I believe we can and have to chart a new path forward for our country, where we restore trust in our government and faith in our institutions, where we unite over our common goals, and above all else, we demand truth from our leaders.
What is the biggest issue facing your community and how do you propose helping?
Equal Opportunity, which includes affordable housing, access to quality healthcare, an education that prepares our students for a 21st century workforce, and upholding the right to clean air and water. We need to prioritize ensuring equal opportunity not only through increased funding but also by building partnerships with state and local governments and organizations to better the lives of everyday people.
How do we fix the partisan divide in our country and start working together again?
Simple, we just do it. We find common ground where we can and where we disagree we go to the table. We just have to get the work done. If Congress is working on things that actually have a positive affect on people’s lives, the divide will fade. We will always be divided on certain issues, but we all have to come to the table and unite over our common goals.
