“I believe that it’s time we’re represented in Harrisburg by real people, not career politicians. Restoring public service to the politics in Harrisburg through a bipartisan effort is something I believe is very important. During my 2016 campaign, I was fortunate to meet many individuals, learning a lot about the needs and hardships facing residents of the 109th Legislative District. I want everyone to know that no matter what side of the political spectrum you may be, on I’m here to listen to you, fight for you and help improve your quality of life at every level.”

As State Representative, Sanders will advocate for a stronger economy, higher wage – family sustaining jobs, stronger schools for our children, legislative reform, public safety and improved care and assistance for veterans and elders. In addition, Sanders hopes to bring more resources and services to the District to help those who suffer from substance abuse disorder.
