Career politicians in Harrisburg have had their turn. Katie Muth is stepping up to put working families first.
Katie is a health care provider and educator who is fed-up with the career politicians in Harrisburg who are serving themselves at our expense. As our State Senator, Katie has made it a priority to ensure that working families have a seat at the table.
ISSUES & PRIORITIES
Property Tax Relief
Hardworking people and families have been burdened by outrageous property taxes, due to poor leadership in Harrisburg by our current elected officials. This is something that hits very close to home for me, since my grandmother was forced to sell her home in Western PA because she could no longer afford to pay the property tax on her home that she owned for over 40 years. I support initiatives such as rebate programs to decrease the burden of property taxes, especially amongst Seniors, so that they do not have to sell their homes and can retire with dignity and financial security. I will fight to make sure that wealthy corporations and the oil and gas industry pay their fair share and put an end to skyrocketing property taxes.
Quality & Affordable Healthcare For All
Adequate and affordable healthcare for families is not a privilege that state legislators should use as a bargaining chip. It is a public resource that should be provided to all working families. I support state-sponsored healthcare for all, so that every Pennsylvanian has access to affordable and quality healthcare services.
Rejuvenating Our Public School System
We must choose to invest in our future by rejuvenating the Pennsylvania public school system and provide educators the resources necessary to succeed. My goal is to ensure this becomes the standard without overtaxing hardworking Pennsylvanians, particularly those within the 44th District.
For too long Harrisburg has been mired in bureaucracy and special interests, resulting in imbalance and inefficiency. Harrisburg is run by a state legislature controlled by career politicians that answer only to special interests. We need to put Harrisburg back to work, so that we can put forth positive and impactful legislation that will benefit all Pennsylvanians.
Government should act to protect all of the people, especially those who cannot protect themselves. This includes insuring the sick and elderly, preserving the environment, promoting safe schools and communities and ensuring job and retirement security for the hardworking people of the Commonwealth.
Harrisburg needs values-based leaders who will fight for freedom and fairness for all. I am one of those leaders and I will work with others to make our state a place of progress and prosperity. I will work hard to make Pennsylvania a truly free, safe, and fair place where everyone can succeed and prosper.
