Being a union sheetmetal worker for the past 40 years has shaped me into the person and candidate that I am today. I have learned how to work collectively to achieve a common goal. I have also learned that no one person is more important than any other. I have seen the significant impact that livable wages, quality health insurance, and dignified retirement has on people. As the President of my union the last 12 years I have been fighting for the rights of workers across the Tri state area. Unions are essential to our society as a whole and I will bring that perspective ti benefit the lives of the residents of the 10th district.
Public Safety, Jobs, and Education
I have a track record for getting things accomplished. I have negotiated many contracts, served on several committees and boards across the city and commonwealth, and progressed the lives of the people who elected me to serve them. I plan to do that for Northeast Philadelphia. It is time that we had proven leadership in our community. One with the experience with working together to achieve a common goal.
I believe if the goals are shared that a solution can be found. I have worked with members of every party throughout my career to pass legislation. I have vast experience in negotiating with opposing parties and reaching meaningful solutions. My goals are common sense goals. I want safer streets, jobs that pay livable wages, and to invest in our schools. I am confident I can work across any ideological lines to achieve those goals.
