As someone who commuted to work over 100 miles per day for almost ten years, I understand the toll it takes on your body and mind. When the weekend comes, you simply want to “check out” until Monday morning and begin the cycle all over again.
Making matters worse, our area was given the distinction of having America's Lousiest Commute. We need you to get involved and let your voice be heard. Don't leave your seat at the table. Tell us how to make the 189th District better!
Thanks to a bipartisan effort from U.S. Rep. Matt Cartwright (D-Pennsylvania) and Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-NJ), these two are working together to secure the necessary funding for the long-awaited railroad project to help ease traffic on Route 80 and give commuters. It may not happen overnight, but it’s good to know work is being done on our behalf, and I applaud their joint effort.
I want the commuters of my district to stay connected to our area and fully enjoy the community they chose to live in.
If elected, I pledge to create a commuter/resident council made up of everyday hard-working citizens and high-school students who will meet with me quarterly to discuss current events and suggest ways to make our neighborhood more unified and productive.
If you have a solution for wasteful spending, I want to hear from you. We are all in this together. Council members will be chosen by lottery and serve one-year terms.
Let’s make the 189th District all that it can be by listening to the people who live and work here on a consistent basis.
