PERRY'S PRIORITIES

OUR ENVIRONMENT

As a lifelong environmentalist, Perry understands that protecting our environment is vital to public health and safety.  As your State Representative and a member of the House Environmental Resources and Energy Committee, Perry has advocated and will continue to advocate for the environment by

  • Protecting our water:  Keep fracking out of the Delaware River Basin to guarantee the safety of our drinking water.

  • Protecting our parks:  Support Governor Wolf's moratorium on leasing state park and forest land for the purposes of natural gas extraction.  

  • Supporting green energy and green jobs: Approach environmental problems by finding solutions that are both environmentally and economically sustainable.

 

OUR EDUCATION

As a former public school teacher and a proud public school parent, Perry knows the importance of supporting our area’s award-winning school districts.  As your State Representative, Perry has advocated and will continue to advocate for:

  • Early childhood education: Assure equal access to quality education.  In Perry’s first term, he helped pass bipartisan funding for education in the state budget for fiscal year 2017/18.

  • College affordability: Guarantee affordable post-secondary education that reduces the necessity and life-long financial burden of student loans

  • Job training: Provide relevant job training for members of our community to allow for an easier transition from education into the workforce.  

 

OUR DEMOCRACY

Perry knows that now more than ever, we need legislation that protects our rights as voters and citizens. As your State Representative, Perry has advocated and will continue to advocate for:

  • An end to gerrymandering: Allow the voters to choose their politicians, and not the other way around. Perry was a co-sponsor of the original House Bill 722, which called for a independent redistricting commission.

  • Election reforms: Keep corporations out of our elections and make it easier, not harder, for members of our community to vote.

  • Free press: Guarantee protection of a free press that allows us to have a reliable source of information for what’s happening in our community, in Harrisburg, and in our nation.
