This section details my involvement in Harrisburg from 1985 to 2012 and beyond, including my prior experience to being a legislator. It also details my main initiatives of the past and present with legislation and Pennsylvania policy. Lastly, I have also included recognitions I have received from the community for my dedicated service.
I support raising the minimum wage, appropriating state funds for embryonic stem cell research, finding a dedicated funding source for mass transit, and taxing all tobacco products, not just cigarettes. I have a proud history in the struggle to end discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender, race, religion, age, income, and disability.
