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.

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.
