I will represent all of you!
I am running a grass roots campaign. I want to meet and talk to you and get your opinions on these issues. I will be knocking on your door.
When it comes time to vote, I will be in touch. I know how it feels be ignored and I want to be your voice in Harrisburg!
As an average citizen of District 19 and the United States, I am fed up with the way money influences our politics. On issues across the board, voters are being ignored because many of our leaders are being held accountable by the financial power impacting our elections. When it's time to make decisions for my district, I will be held accountable only by the people that voted me in.
I know how it feels to be ignored, and I want to be a voice in Harrisburg for neighborhoods that have been just that by politicians for far too long!
LET'S DO IT TOGETHER, FOR DISTRICT 19! WE ARE DISTRICT 19!
WE ARE D19!
