State and National

What is your view on Climate Change?

Additional Comments: We should not be arguing whether climate change is a real issue facing our society. It is caused by human activity and we need to address this immediately as a society. One such step is transitioning to a renewable energy sector here in Pennsylvania and this is why I support being to 100% renewable energy by 2050.
State and National

Regarding gun laws, what generally do you support from the choices below?

Additional Comments: We need to be fighting for common sense gun control as a society, and this includes banning military style assault weapons. I'm supportive of the 2nd Amendment when it comes to a hunting or home protection, but see no need for someone having to own military style assault weapons that were designed to kill. My political career got started in the wake of gun violence in Braddock when two of my students were violently gunned down. I have seen firsthand the destruction that assault weapons cause and what gun violence does to families, neighbors, and communities. We need to do more together to make sure common sense gun control, including the banning of military style assault weapons, is enacted.
State and National

How should marijuana be regulated?

Additional Comments: I am for full marijuana legalization and the full commuting of all non-violent marijuana sentences that are currently being served. When I ran for US Senate, before that, and still today, I say we go "Full Colorado" and use the revenue from a taxed marijuana system for whatever we decide on as a commonwealth.
