Welcome to my website. During the past eleven years it has been a privilege to serve the community as a school director for the Exeter Township Schools, a member of the Joint Operating Committee of the Berks Career and Technology Center, and a member of the Berks County Planning Team for Good Schools PA. During board meetings, our last campaign, and community events I have had the pleasure of meeting so many of you in the 130th legislative district. I take my responsibilities as a public servant seriously and I am truly dedicated to finding solutions to the problems that people face.
We need to create and provide adequate financial support for a world class education system and build an economy that works for all Pennsylvanians. This legislature is too interested in promoting their party’s narrow agenda and the narrow agenda of special interests whose campaign contributions have come to control too many members of the state house. Creating a better future for all who make Pennsylvania their home has become of secondary importance to those serving in Harrisburg.
Our state faces a number of challenges that our legislature has failed to address. Pennsylvania’s homeowners have been crying out for over 25 years for property tax reform. Our leaders in Harrisburg have ignored the pleas in deference to the influence of special interests against real property tax reform. The legislature has turned its back to new revenue streams in order to pander to special interests. They have failed to act on important issues because they vote according to the instructions of their political caucus. The resulting ineffectiveness from partisanship and the influence of special interest groups is not a path to prosperity.
If you agree with me in the direction our state must take in order to insure a better life for all of Pennsylvania's citizens then join me in my campaign. I promise to take the fight for a new direction to Harrisburg!
