Issues & Resources

Below you will find an enumeration of the issues which I believe to be the most important to the future of Pennsylvania. If there is one consistent theme to what motivates me I think it would best be summed up by the word “access”. I believe we are in a long-term, continuing struggle to expand access to the things that make life both livable and meaningful. This could be access to health care, or enough to eat, or basic civil rights or clean air to breathe. Access for some is not enough. Our goal must be access for all, and that’s what I’m fighting for.
