-Listen to you and work on behalf of all residents

Public education is one of the only mandates of our PA Constitution and our children deserve the opportunities that rich, forward-thinking education can provide. We should be putting a greater emphasis on early childhood learning, fully supporting the schools and professional educators who teach our school age children and continuing that responsibility to include the faculties and students in our state system of higher education. More emphasis must be put on teaching and opportunity and less on testing and evaluating.
We must be stewards of our environment. It is time to end our reliance on fossil fuels. We have the technology available to switch to clean energy, but the commitment needed to transition our infrastructure is lacking in Harrisburg and Washington D.C. Our inability to switch to cleaner energy sources is mainly because of the monetary stronghold the fossil fuel industry has on our so called representatives. I will not be beholden to this industry and will promote forward thinking initiatives to fully utilize renewable energy. We owe this to our children.
We here in Lancaster have some of the best farming in the country. If that is something that we hold dear, it is important to understand our impact on the land around us. From the application of herbicides to home lawns to pesticide applications in large scale farming, we are all responsible for pollution. But it doesn’t stop there. We have the opportunity to make an impact in reversing Climate Change. That starts with recognizing that humans are in fact causing the problem. We made the problem through technology advancement. We can find the solution.
