Attention Voters In the New 12th Congressional District
The Republicans have put up a candidate for the newly formed 12th District that has the same name as the retiring (Dem) Rep. Mike Doyle! They have tried this before!!
Our Candidate is Summer Lee and she will work hard for the people in the 12th District. We need to get the word out that if our values are to be represented in Congress, WE NEED TO VOTE FOR SUMMER LEE

Go to Capitol Assault Hearings
The presidential election was held November 3, 2020, and more than a year later, our fellow citizens still believe false results.
President Biden's Agenda
Infrastructure & Jobs Act
Passed with bipartisan support. How did your representatives vote?
Senator Bob Casey voted YES
Senator Pat Toomey voted NO
Representative Reschenthaler voted NO
What this Bill will do for Pennsylvanians
$11.3 billion for roads and highways and $1.6 billion for bridge repair and replacement
$2.8 billion for public transportation
replacement of the 160,000 lead service lines in Pennsylvania
$171 million to expand electric vehicle charging networks
Expand broadband internet
More than $3 billion for abandoned mine reclamation
What does this mean for you and your family?
The 2018 Report Card for Pennsylvania's infrastructure gave the Commonwealth an overall grade of C-, which reflects that PA has some of the worst roads and bridges in the country. This bill will help repair more than 3,300 structurally-deficient bridges and over 7,540 miles of highway in poor condition.
This bill will also expand broadband internet to the more than 390,000 Pennsylvanians who lack access-meaning more kids can do their homework and more families can stay connected.

Letter of the Week
We Need Action On Guns....
Gun violence is now the leading cause of death in children ("Gunfire taking toll on children," June 1).
On May 24, 19 children were massacred in school...where we expect kids to be safe and cared for.
We deserve to live in communities that are safe and secure, where all can thrive and prosper. Until this epidemic of gun violence ends, the American ideals of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are lost to senseless killings.
The time has come when thoughts and prayers are not enough. We need action.
Tell Congress that we have seen enough. We must ban assault weapons and high-capacity ammunitions, reinstate universal background checks, enact red flag laws, close gun show loopholes and hold the gun industry and NRA accountable.
Let's band together to address the root causes of violence. Eliminate poverty and promote acceptance, kindness, equity and diversity. Enhance mental health care. Demand government investment in helping our communities thrive. Restore our ability to live in a safe society where we can shop, worship and attend school and gatherings without fearing for our lives.
Join Voice of Westmoreland on the nationwide day of action, June 11, Rally Against Gun Violence at 6:30p.m. at St. Clair Park, Greensburg.
