Issue Position: Preserving Open Space

Issue Position

Open space and farmland are among the most valuable assets of our region, but they are threatened by development. As a former farmer and lifelong outdoorsman, this concerns me as well, and I have made farmland preservation and protecting the outdoors one of my main legislative goals.

Since 1988, state and county programs have preserved over 3500 Pennsylvania farms with over 395,000 acres, with more than 100 farms and almost 7285 acres preserved in Montgomery County alone. I have always been a strong advocate and leading voice for this very valuable conservation easement program that is saving open space in our community.
