Frank Ryan wants to tax retirement income, but I will protect seniors' livelihood to save dignity after work
Harrisburg has more representatives than we can afford or need, so I support shrinking its membership
Frank Ryan wants to tax staples like food and clothing, but I will work to keep that burden off of PA families
I have spent decades building a good reputation in the community, and my integrity will remain after the election
Until last year, I would have been content to enjoy leisure and quality time with family in retirement, staying out of the bustle that had dominated my decades looking after pets as a local veterinarian.
Now, after seeing what passes for representation in Harrisburg, I have decided to run for office on a platform of fiscal responsibility and protecting senior from economic assault. I have two big ideas to increase the purchasing power of Pennsylvanians.
We can effect significant savings by cutting the size of the PA House . The 101 districts that remain could have more staff to meet constituent needs and still save taxpayers millions of dollars.
After working for decades and paying into the system, Pennsylvanians deserve to hold on to the income that allows them to retire with dignity. Legislators should not bleed seniors dry to pay down unnecessary debt.
You are joining a group of people invested in making Pennsylvania more fair, more responsive, and more sensible. My constituents are my only interest group, and I need volunteers to ensure that I know what those interests include. I don't expect anyone to do anything I wouldn't.
I promise to use the money you contribute wisely. I have found a team that will employ evidence-based techniques to bring you the election you deserve. I ask you to look at this election like an investment, and I will do everyting in my power to deliver a return.
Most people have some kind of online presence, and putting my campaign in their feeds can help.
People like to be heard and receive good information, and you can do both over the phone.
Text messaging is an engaging way to reach voters, and we tend to get more responses.
To help make the case for some of my policies and my race, you can write to local papers.
