Create a Robust Economy

We need a smart growth and development plan that invests in our unique and historically valuable communities.

A:
  • Generate new, fiscally responsible revenue streams balanced with careful, calculated spending

  • Develop and support specialty farming and agriculture-based entrepreneurship opportunities

  • Strengthen our small businesses and expand our “PA Preferred” program prioritizing Pennsylvania industry

  • Adopt fair taxation for corporations and incentivize reward programs for hardworking employees

  • Create new, equal opportunities for students and workers with wages that are fair for employees and employers

  • Restore revitalization funding allowing municipal leaders to complete neighborhood projects

 

No doubt, warehouse development provides good, secure employment opportunities, but in the wrong places are destroying the unique and historically valuable communities we’ve worked so hard to build. We aren’t doing enough to help farmers cope with a changing economy or help municipal leaders to protect farmland and the open spaces we value. Development that isn’t strategically planned exacerbates a crumbling infrastructure, which taxpayers end up on the hook for.

Developers will stop at nothing until every last piece of land in the Lehigh Valley is developed unless we elect leaders to balance jobs and growth. Jason is working hard with community leaders in surrounding municipalities as Slatington’s representative to updating our Northern Lehigh Region’s Comprehensive Plan that would plan for smart development. Unfortunately, our incumbent votes to open our community roadways up to even more truck traffic, rather than act on citizen’s demands to reduce it.
