Investing in Rural Communities

When I say “Every County, Every Vote,” I mean it. For too long, politicians in Washington have promised to fight for rural America but have repeatedly failed to deliver. A lot of talk, and little action. Small towns and rural communities are the heart and soul of this country – it’s time we invest in them. When I’m your senator, I’ll bring that commitment to everything I do. 

In the Senate, I’ll fight for farmers’ rights to repair their own equipment and take on Big Ag so Pennsylvania’s small farmers can have a fair shot; this includes fighting for improved grant and loan opportunities for farmers of color. I’ll also make sure that long-promised investments in rural broadband and other critical infrastructure make their way to where they’re actually needed, because in this day and age, broadband internet access is almost as fundamental as electricity or running water. We can’t let red tape and bureaucracy get in the way of lifting up our communities that have been left behind.
