Re-Elected to Leadership

On November 14th, I had the honor of being re-elected to the Pennsylvania Senate Democratic Leadership Team as Caucus Secretary for the 2019-2020 Legislative Session. I look forward to working with current and new Senate Democratic members on legislative priorities that are important to our caucus and issues that are important to Senator’s districts. As part of the Leadership Team, I believe it is important to work with all members to make sure everyone’s voice is heard in Pennsylvania.
