For too long our schools have underperformed even with dedicated teachers, coaches and parents who are trying their hardest under difficult circumstances. Dave will work with school districts to ensure every child receives a quality education and is on a path towards success. Dave will listen to parents and work toward creating more equitable funding for school districts with limited resources and work tirelessly to expand Pre-K to all school districts.
Dave knows what it means to have a good paying union job. In his role at the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO, Dave works with non-profits like United Way to connect unemployed or underemployed individuals with good paying jobs. Dave will work on policies to project union jobs in the district and will also work on workforce development programs that lead towards family sustaining wage
Environment/ Green Infrastructure:
Pennsylvania’s roads and bridges are in dire need of repair and we need to think of innovative ways to fund our infrastructure needs. Dave will work with PennDOT, Dauphin County, and local governments to bring much needed investment to our infrastructure, to address flooding from the Paxtang Creek, provide more resources to stop the pollution cascading into the Susquehanna River, and to beautify places such as the Cameron Street corridor.
