Common Sense Leadership
Time for a Change
Ethics and Good Government
Since House Republicans took control of the State House, there have been 6 credit downgrades, costing taxpayers more than $100,000,000 each year. They continue to raid state programs and agencies extend a history of falling short on funding education. Republicans continue to obstruct sustainable solutions by opposing any revenue measure levied against their political donors, including the fracking industry.
A history of underfunding and unfair politically driven funding formulas have created an unjust structure that relies too heavily on property taxes and creates social inequality across the state. Our legislature is constitutionally mandated to fulfill its responsibility to equitably provide a thorough and efficient system for funding public education. The PA Supreme Court ruled in September 2017 that our current leadership is falling short of this responsibility.

Clean Energy Jobs
Clean, sustainable energy jobs pay dividends in market growth, family-sustaining careers at all skill and education levels and a solid future economically and environmentally; providing a safer, healthier life for Pennsylvanians. If we truly want to grow our economy, reduce air and water pollution, protect public health and build a wealth of jobs for Pennsylvania workers, we must invest in clean energy.
