I’m running to represent you in the PA House in 2020, and between now and then, there’s a lot of work to do. It’s time to put our house in order and I stand ready to help restore order in Harrisburg.
152nd Legislative District
I grew up the youngest of 5 in a blue collar, hardworking household where I was taught to get my own house in order first and then to go out and give back to others that needed help. In 1976 I gave back to our country by joining the US Army where I served as a Communications analyst and German translator at Field Station Berlin. My time in service was incredibly rewarding and those experiences will stay with me forever.
When I came back home, I started my own family and strived to keep my house in order once again. I‘ve been married to my husband Steve for over 25 years and I have an amazing daughter Andrea.
In 2006 I again felt the calling to give back to my community and ran for Council to help improve my town, Hatboro. We were dominated by Republicans and I felt it was time for a change. I served on Council for 2 terms, working hard across the aisle to improve our parks, our finances and our infrastructure.
On Council, I lead the effort to pass a Human Relations ordinance to help protect our LGBTQ community, but the measure was vetoed by our mayor. I patiently waited for his term to expire, so I could replace him and work to improve life for all Hatboro citizens. We needed to work harder to get Hatboro’s house back in order.
Upon becoming the first female Mayor of Hatboro, I immediately signed the Human Relations ordinance into law and I have never stopped fighting for what is right. As your State Representative, I’ll fight like hell, just as I’ve always done.
We must cut through the gridlock and work together. But, I need your help to get me to the table. I’m asking you to take part in this campaign to get me there. Volunteer, vote and get involved, talk to your neighbors, attend meetings and never give up.
