August 30 Update: Gerrymandering, FDA Approves First COVID-19 Vaccine, and Federal Pandemic Unemployment Benefits Program Ending

(Aug 30, 2021)

STAY INFORMED HOW WE VOTED CONTACT ME Dear Neighbor, I hope you are well! I wanted to take this opportunity to update you on a few happenings in the district and in Harrisburg. As always, I hope you find this informative and useful. Gerrymandering Yesterday, the Legislative Reapportionment Commission voted in favor of House Democratic Leader Joanna McClinton’s resolution to end the practice of prison gerrymandering. The commission’s action changes the current practice of counting incarcerated individuals as residents of the prison location rather than their previous residential address for drawing state House and Senate districts. Prison gerrymandering was a poor practice from the beginning, and this change is a vital step towards fairness and equity in Pennsylvania elections. Prison gerrymandering is advantageous politically for those who would prefer to have control even when they are in the minority. In 1980, there were a handful of state prisons in Pennsylvania. In 2021, there are 24. Mass incarceration is already bad policy – it shouldn’t be used to undermine the fairness of elections, Read more
