I have enjoyed over 40 years of service to our community. I served multiple terms on the Souderton School Board and as Montgomery County Controller before being elected to the PA House of Representatives.
I am currently the Chair of the House Consumer Affairs Committee, dealing with consumer and energy issues. We recently passed a decisive bill, 12 years in the making, that enables utilities to upgrade crumbling infrastructure. Presently our efforts are geared towards weather related outages and substantial changes aimed at variable rates.
I have been recognized for numerous pro-taxpayer votes in the legislature and am widely recognized as one of the premier advocates for sportsmen’s issues in the General Assembly. I was a leader in addressing our highway and bridge problems in the enactment of the 2013 Transportation Bill.
My top priorities for the next legislative session are property tax reform, pension reform, and improving our job situation by reforming Pennsylvania’s business tax image.
