A Note from Valerie
I am often asked why I want to run for elective office in this terribly divisive environment.
The short answer is that I care about our people, our community, our state and our country. I’m Qualified. Experienced. Accountable. Dedicated. Hardworking. I want to be your next Representative in Harrisburg to get things done for YOU!
I’ve been successful in business and have had many life and businesses experiences both in Pennsylvania and throughout the country. As such, I know how Pennsylvania can do better and I wish to make a difference. I’ve had my career and now I want to give back.
I’m tired of career politicians and public officials who spend too much time mudslinging and collecting their own paychecks while taxing and spending our hard earned dollars.
After being a patient advocate and caregiver for my late husband with lung cancer and an aging parent with Parkinson's Disease for 15 years, I understand how life's challenges can add hurdles in our lives and that government shouldn't be one of them.
As your Representative, I pledge to fight for fiscal accountability, educational initiatives to prepare our students for their futures and economic policies to strengthen PA's business climate.
I also pledge to protect and preserve our personal rights and freedoms as guaranteed under The Constitution.
A legislator should be knowledgeable about business but should also be compassionate, experienced, mature and well rounded. I am all of that!
