Many families understand the struggle to balance work and family-related expenses, especially if you’re paying for your child’s daycare or you’re a caregiver of an adult or an elderly loved one. Families shouldn’t have to choose between going to work and having quality care for a loved one. Families shouldn’t have to work just to pay for care.My colleagues and I fought and won for working families by easing that cost burden through a significant increase in the Child and Dependent Care Enhancement Tax Credit, which we just passed in the legislature this week with bipartisan support. This was part of a larger package of state budget-related bills that we passed and that Governor Shapiro signed into law this week. Read more

As we near the end of the year, it’s easy to get swept up in the hustle and bustle of the holidays. But if you’re a pet parent, it’s important that you don’t neglect to have your dog licensed. All dogs three months or older must be licensed by Jan. 1 of each year. Licensing your dog is the law and the most effective way to ensure their safety. Need help with the licensing process? My office is here to help! I’m teaming up with the Office of Montgomery County Treasurer Jason Salus to host two dog licensing events. Read more

I enjoyed seeing everyone at this community event and participating in the longstanding housing tradition of leading a new vehicle into the station. Read more
