Endorsements

Pennsylvania State Education Association - Political Action Committee for Education


I’m proud to announce an endorsement from PSEA-PACE, the political arm of the PA State Education Association. PSEA represents over 181,000 members and serves over 1.5 million school children. Protecting public education is a cornerstone of my campaign. As a product of my district’s public schools, I know the value of a good public education. In the legislature, I’ll fight to make sure our schools are properly funded and to make sure every Pennsylvania kid gets the public education he or she deserves. I’ll fight against harmful bills that hurt our schools, like my opponent’s HB 1213 - a bill which would strip billions of dollars from our already underfunded schools. Thank you, PSEA!
