As citizens of this Commonwealth, we should have the protection and services of the government. We should know that our property rights will be protected. We all worked too hard to purchase our homes to feel they can be easily in jeopardy. The government should be protecting these rights, not denying them.
When an individual makes a mistake, he or she must pay the price. We have a fair, honest and tough justice system and we support that. But when someone has paid his or her debt to society, comes back to their family, works to get a job and be a contributing member to society, our responsibility is to aid in that. We can start by restoring his or her voting rights automatically and I will work for that. When the debt is paid, everyone deserves a new slate.
I also want to increase the job opportunities in our district. We need good paying jobs so citizens can support themselves and their families. I want to see companies choose this area and I want to make sure that our residents have the training and skills for those jobs.
