This involvement has turned me into the man I am today – prepared to serve all of the people in the 68th District of Pennsylvania.

He stated, “From the opioid crisis, to our struggling dairy industry and creating more jobs in our area, I plan to get directly involved and take action for the sake of our communities and our children. As the great Ronald Reagan once said, ‘Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.’”
