It’s time for a senator who supports working people and is not beholden to wealthy donors or party bosses!

It’s time for a senator who supports the residents of the district who worked so hard for independent redistricting!

It’s time for a senator who sees the fracking ban in the Delaware River Basin as a protection, not a taking!

My Positions:

Combined reporting of corporate income is necessary to stop revenue loss through the “Delaware” and other loopholes.

Schools should be equitably funded from the General Fund on a per student basis.

I support voter verifiable paper ballots, open primaries, ranked choice voting and all measures to ensure free, fair and open elections that promote a strong democracy and a healthy community.

I support:

A transition to a 21st century energy policy based on solar, wind, hydro, and geothermal power.Healthcare for all of PA

Healthcare for all of PA

A living wage

Legalization of cannabis with regulations identical to those currently in place for alcohol.

Medical marijuana should be available in pharmacies or over the counter like other medications
