Too many legislators serve too long, building their pensions instead of building their districts. I promise to turn down the perks and accept no pension until every Pennsylvanian’s retirement is secure.
Citizens First Ethics Pledge
Mary has committed to adhere to Governor Tom Wolf’s Citizens First Ethics Pledge, which includes banning gifts to public officials, withholding legislator’s pay until a budget is passed, limiting campaign contributions from special interests, and requiring itemized receipts for expenses.
American Anti-Corruption Act
Mary supports the American Anti-Corruption Act, a model policy that sets a framework for city, state and federal laws to fix our broken political system. It fundamentally reshapes the rules of American politics and restores the people as the most important stakeholders in our political system.
Fair Redistricting Legislation
Mary supports the original versions of HB722 and SB22, which would create an independent commission of regular PA citizens tasked with creating district boundaries for state and federal districts, removing the influence of partisanship, and giving citizens a more responsive legislature.
No Fossil Fuel Money
Mary has signed the No Fossil Fuel Money Pledge, and has committed to putting the health of our families, climate, and democracy ahead of fossil fuel profits.
