                        Ribbon Cutting for My New Office

 

We held the official ribbon cutting of my second district office at 10501 Academy Road, Unit E. It is now open for business.

Having a second office right on Academy Road will be much more convenient for residents who live in Parkwood, Chalfont and Milbrook.

The new district office can be reached at 215-632-3237. Office hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. My staff will be on hand to help constituents with all state issues.

I will also maintain her office at 10752 Bustleton Ave., Suite C. The number there is 215-330-2711.

Report Potholes to PennDOT

You can also call one of my offices at 215-632-3237 or 215-330-3711.

Matching Good-Paying Jobs with the Right Training

I believe we must improve workforce development and career and technical education (CTE) opportunities for students in Pennsylvania. This week, a package of bills that will help us achieve these goals earned committee approval and will now advance to the full House for a vote.

This package includes bills that would boost awareness of workforce needs and increase the flexibility for secondary CTE programs. Bills would also create a comprehensive online CTE resource center and coordinate a state-level career exploration and workforce development opportunities.

Improving the way CTE works in Pennsylvania also would include putting at least one K-12 career and technical center administrator on each Workforce Development Board and creating a database with information on where courses, programs, certificates, and diplomas transfer among public schools and institutions of higher education.

Health Committee Hearing Focuses on Employment Issues in Health Care

This week, the House Health Committee heard testimony about difficulty in attracting doctors and other health care employees to Pennsylvania.

Experts from across the state who testified said burdensome government regulations have contributed to “burnout” and pushed younger doctors and nurses to move out of Pennsylvania. They also discussed issues with finding qualified candidates to fill important roles, including nurses and technicians.

As the session continues, the House will look at ways we can remove these barriers and help improve training for these important positions.

Keep PA Beautiful!

Volunteers are being sought for this year’s Great American Cleanup of Pennsylvania, which began March 1 and runs through May 31. A comprehensive webpage that includes all volunteer opportunities available, from the Great American Cleanup of PA and Adopt-A-Highway to Safety Training, Litter Brigades and more, is available here.

The cleanup is sponsored each year by PennDOT, the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful and other partners.

During last year’s cleanup, 108,638 volunteers collected over 7.7 million pounds of litter from Pennsylvania’s roads, trails and shorelines. Over 5,300 events were held, with every county participating.

Groups participating in PennDOT’s Adopt-A-Highway (AAH) program, which involves volunteers cleaning roadsides year-round, are also encouraged to participate in the cleanup, with gloves, trash bags and safety vests provided. In addition, during “Pick It Up, PA Days,” set for April 13 to May 6, registered cleanup events have access to reduced or free disposal at participating landfills, through support from DEP and the Pennsylvania Waste Industries Association.
