ECONOMY 

For too long, Harrisburg has put the needs of Wall Street over Main Street. Paul will fight for good-paying jobs in our communities, he’ll work to ensure that small businesses have the support they need to thrive and support smart fiscal management of taxpayer dollars as we continue to recover from the economic impact of COVID-19

  • Balance our budget through closing tax loopholes, not with reckless cuts

HEALTHCARE

To make healthcare accessible and more affordable, Paul believes there must be investments in accessible preventative care, affordable copays, lower costs for prescription drugs, and caps on premiums and costs for services. Paul wants residents to have a public option for health insurance and believes patients should have the freedom to choose their healthcare services. Investing in and integrating our healthcare system will ensure better care, more coverage, and greater overall efficiency. The COVID-19 crisis has clearly demonstrated the weaknesses in our healthcare infrastructure, now is the time to invest in a stronger system for the future.

ENVIRONMENT

For eight years, Paul owned PACE Environmental, an environmental testing and engineering firm, and he believes that we can take a science-based approach to combat climate change and create a greener economy here in Pennsylvania. Paul supports a transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy by incentivizing green jobs and making renewable energy more competitive. Paul is dedicated to protecting the well-being of our communities and will work for policies that support open spaces, along with clean air and water.

EDUCATION

He will pursue full and fair funding for school districts and work to close the budget gaps that place children of color and children in poor communities at a disadvantage. Paul is an advocate for increasing our investment in higher education so students can attend college without going into crippling debt.

FAMILY AGRICULTURE & RURAL PENNSYLVANIA

Agriculture is a vital and vibrant industry in Pennsylvania, and prioritizing rural issues is important to Paul. The agricultural community in Chester County has been steadily shrinking in recent years, whether in terms of the number and size of farms, or share of the county made up of farmland. The character of our state is at stake, and Paul is committed to fighting for family farms and local agriculture businesses. In addition to supporting the agriculture industry, he knows we must strengthen our rural communities by investing in infrastructure and making government services available and accessible to everyone in the district.

  • Increase access to rural broadband

  • Create fair environmental policy & storm-water regulation

  • Support land leasing for solar projects

  • Protect state agriculture and invest in family farms that grow food we eat vs industrial farms producing crops for federal subsidies

  • Increase access to quality healthcare in rural communities

GOOD GOVERNANCE

Pennsylvania has been one of the most gerrymandered states in the country, and too many of our policy decisions have been informed by bad-faith partisanship and political games at the expense of taxpayers and communities. Paul believes in reforming campaign finance, ending gerrymandering, and establishing term limits to improve transparency and accountability from elected officials. He’s committed to making voting easier and more accessible, and knows we must allow communities to vote together and stop them from being split up for partisan interests. 

  • Create transparency and accountability in government

  • Demand fair representation and an end to gerrymandering

  • Establish term limits for legislators for greater accountability and responsiveness

  • Make voting and voter registration more accessible

  • Support common-sense reforms like “No budget, no Pay” to ensure that state budgets are passed on time
