I am humbled to have the opportunity to represent Blair, Huntingdon, Franklin, Fulton and Cumberland counties in the Pennsylvania Senate. Over the past four years as a State Representative, I have had thousands of conversations with local residents at community events throughout the region. The input I receive from these discussions is extremely valuable. Knowing how you feel about the issues facing our communities helps me better represent you.
Serving in the Senate is a solemn responsibility, and one I take very seriously. Part of that responsibility means keeping the lines of communication open between myself, my office, and the communities I represent. To help meet that responsibility, I plan to send out electronic newsletter updates on a regular basis to ensure local residents know what is happening both in Harrisburg and in the communities of the 30th Senatorial District.
I appreciate hearing your perspectives on the issues facing our region. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like to share your thoughts, or if I can assist you with any problems related to state government. I look forward to hearing from you.

I appreciated the chance to tour the Greater Altoona Career and Technology Center alongside Eileen Cipriani, Deputy Secretary for the Department of Labor Workforce Development, and Carol Kilko, Deputy Secretary for Department of Community and Economic Development.
Programs Available to Assist Pennsylvania’s Military and Veterans
The brave men and women who have served our nation in the military deserve our deepest respect and most sincere appreciation. The Department of Military and Veterans Affairs administers four programs that allow state residents to support veterans, active duty military members and their families by making tax-deductible donations.
More information about the Military Family Relief Assistance Program, the Veterans’ Trust Fund, Residents’ Welfare Funds, and the Pennsylvania Veterans’ Memorial Trust Fund is available here.
