New Office Open for Business

This was the first week of operation of my new district office, located at 204 Bridge St. in Weissport. I would like to thank everyone for your patience as we made the move.

Hats off to my staff for working all last week to get the office ready. Special thanks to Jay Frey for providing us with a great location to serve the residents of Carbon County.

I’d also like to give a shout-out to Jeff Elder for helping to get us in the office a few days ahead of schedule, as well as Weissport Borough Council and area residents for the warm welcome. We love it here!

What a pleasant surprise on Thursday when one of our new neighbors showed up with a cake and a card! Thank you, Anita Wisler, and everyone who signed the card for making us feel so welcome in our new home.

Budget Address Starts the Process

Gov. Tom Wolf delivered his budget proposal for the 2019-20 fiscal year before a joint session of the General Assembly on Tuesday.

House Republicans have been, and will continue to be, leaders when it comes to education funding, having increased spending for PreK-12 education by $3.4 billion since 2011.

We will also continue our commitment to building the economy through a better tax and regulatory climate, as well as ensuring our students are trained for the jobs of today and tomorrow. We are equally committed to removing the barriers to employment and self-sufficiency.

The budget process continues next week with the first in a series of House Appropriations Committee hearings, which I will be attending as a committee member, to delve into the details of the governor’s plan. For a schedule and live streaming of the hearings, visit

Students must have attained a minimum 3.0 cumulative grade point average in high school in order to be eligible for a scholarship. Other factors taken into consideration for the awards are a student’s commitment to community, leadership qualities, extracurricular activities and financial need.

The application deadline is March 1, 2019. Learn more here, including how to apply.
