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.
