|I joined a rally with Fair Districts to show my support for H.B. 22 and H.B. 23, which would provide for an independent redistricting commission.
New maps for all districts for the state and federal government will be drawn after the 2020 census. These bills intend to make sure that politicians don't draw the lines - and that the districts are fair. This means better representation for you, the voters.
I believe that we can put an end to gerrymandering and use a nonpartisan and independent redistricting commission to ensure that all Pennsylvanians have their voices heard. I'm proud to support this effort and am looking forward to continuing my work for you in Harrisburg.

|Recreational Marijuana Listening Tour
|Last night, I joined Lt. Gov John Fetterman on his Recreational Marijuana Listening Tour stop in Delco. I was joined by other Delco state representatives and Congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon. Thank you to all the residents who attended to share their opinions. We had opinions voiced from both sides of the issue and a few people who are undecided also spoke up.
We had 38 residents share their thoughts and a few themes were shared by many of our speakers, including decriminalization and releasing people who have been incarcerated as part of legalization. Other speakers shared frustration that no research can be done until the federal government removes marijuana from schedule 1 and their hopes that we can find way to regulate responsibly.
I thank Lt. Gov. John Fetterman for visiting Delco and hearing the opinions of residents here. If you weren’t able to attend, but would like to share your thoughts with the lieutenant governor, please visit this link.
