Cindy Frich and Joe Statler Voted AGAINST

Adequate Raises for teachers and other public employees UNTIL the teachers forced them to join DEMOCRATS in supporting raises and to FIX PEIA.
The DEMOCRATS' Proposal to Eliminate of the state income tax on Social Security. (Most states do not tax Social Security income!)
And PEIA STILL isn't Fixed!

At a recent forum, each candidate was asked how they would fix PEIA funding. Cindy and Joe's answers?
"Wait and see what the task force comes up with."

Every Democrat in attendance, however, had a plan for raising revenue either through new streams of tax revenue by legalizing cannabis, raising the severance tax on natural gas to 8%, or through modest increases in tobacco or "sugary drink" taxes.  
 

We shouldn't be WAITING to fix a problem that literally effects people's lives.
 
Let's find real solutions. Vote Democrat.
