If reincarnation does exist, I want to come back as one of Jerry’s birds. My husband, Jerry, is for the birds. As soon as the first leaf of autumn had fallen, Jerry was looking for the best prices on bird seed and getting his thermal spa ready for winter bathing. I have never used Jerry’s spa. It’s in our back yard just past our deck in prime real estate location for a bird’s eye view while sitting at our kitchen table. It could probably handle my foot and big toe… possibly. I don’t have a spa, but Jerry’s birds do.

Neilson accepts nomination for City Council run

When my family and I first decided that I would run for elective office, we hit the streets hard. I personally knocked on thousands of doors with my family and friends throughout my Northeast district and beyond. My message was simple: We needed to make certain that the 169th district continued to have a strong voice in Harrisburg, and I was the best candidate to serve you. The efforts paid off. I gained your support and won the election to serve in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. I will be forever grateful for your friendship and support.
