Our Solutions: Keeping the Community Clean

Cedarbrook Plaza has reported illegal dumping along with the theft of shopping carts. Walmart reports that they have spent over $100,000 to replace the carts and has recovered many carts in our neighborhoods. Please contact my office with any information about illegal dumping and shopping cart theft at Cedarbrook Plaza. If you see something, say something to protect our communities and businesses.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

coronavirusThe Department of Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine issued the following statement about the Coronavirus:

“Since the start of this outbreak, we’ve taken a proactive approach to prepare and carefully monitor potential cases of COVID-19 in Pennsylvania. We are working to make sure our health systems, first responders and county and municipal health departments have the resources they need to respond.”

To date, there are no cases of Coronavirus in Pennsylvania. However, in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), I urge you to wash your hands frequently, blow your nose into a tissue, disinfect surfaces, and stay home if you are sick.

Fannie Lou HamerWomen’s History Month

March is Women’s History Month. While there are many women to highlight for their accomplishments in American history, Fannie Lou Hamer stands out. Ms. Hamer used her valiant efforts to ensure the civil rights of minorities, women, and low-income families. She also dedicated her life to fight for civil rights while working with the Regional Council of Negro Leadership and the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. Ms. Hamer even organized acts of civil disobedience to fight racial segregation and injustice. Thanks to Fannie Lou Hamer and women like her who changed the world for the better.

Gun Violence Prevention Legislation Announced

SenatorArt Haywood

Gun violence is a tragedy across the Commonwealth. Everyone knows of someone affected by gun violence, whether suicide, homicide or a shooting. In February, I introduced legislation providing grants to support community-based violence reduction initiatives. This legislation will help prevent further violence. Experience proves selected community-based gun violence reduction programs are part of the solution.
