Why are you running for office?
I know firsthand how hardworking Pennsylvanians live and the kinds of sacrifices they make every day to provide for their families. I understand the value of a living wage and what it means to work hard – often at multiple jobs – to afford health care and medications. I want all of our kids and grandkids to have safe schools to attend and strong tools to succeed in a changing economy. I understand that Pennsylvanians deserve a member of Congress who will be present and fight for our families every day.
What is the biggest issue facing your community and how do you propose helping?
Economy- I promote retooling individuals and preparing those entering the work field or re-entering for new jobs. Some will be in new energy, manufacturing, digital, and science.
How do we fix the partisan divide in our country and start working together again?
We must recognize we are all equal and we all deserve the ability to succeed. We have to start opening up conversation across party lines to come together for true solutions that work for everyone.
Who is your hero?
My mother and my two children.
Do you have any kids/pets/talking houseplants?
Two girls, Zoey 14, and Josephine 11.
