What a Saturday! It was an incredible day surrounded by fellow Democrats and strong women, supporting the community’s effort to stop bullying, and sharing why I am running for office and what qualifications are needed for the Prothonotary’s office.
Saturday morning started with the 2019 Governor Tom W. Wolf Breakfast Annual State of the County Committee Speech. What a morning! So many great people in one room to hear how the county is moving the Democratic ideal forward. We also had the opportunity to hear from Rabiya Khan, who spoke of her experience being a Muslim in America. She is so inspirational and I am feel privileged to have heard her speak.
From there, it was over to the Championship Club in York for the Women Empowering Women Expo and Rally, hosted by the York NAACP and the York County Federation of Democratic Women. A great afternoon to help build up women through women-owned businesses, ways to help in the community, and a business clothing give away. Thank you to everyone who were a part of planning this incredible event!
The Movement in York hosted a Stop the Bullying Rally at the Union Lutheran Church. This event allowed children and parents to come together to learn more about bullying, as well as finding ways to stop it. We all need to be a part of the solution to bullying. Thank you to The Movement for organizing such a powerful and important rally. They will be hosting these rallies monthly to keep this topic on the top of mind. Please look to their Facebook page for more information.
I then had the opportunity to go on Joe Live to talk about why I am running for York County Prothonotary and why I am the best candidate for the position. We chatted for an hour about how I want to give York County a choice on the ballot, so Democrats know there are people in the community who want to be a progressive voice. With 20 years of experience in non-profit fundraising and government recordkeeping, I have experience in management, I have worked with hundreds of board and committee members, volunteer, event participants, and co-workers, and prepared millions of birth and death records for patron access at the Pennsylvania State Archives using best practices and adjusted access as needed with new procedures. I have a BA in Communications from Elizabethtown College and an MA in American Studies from Penn State University. My experience and education make me the best candidate to be the next York County Prothonotary.
Saturday may have been busy, but it was a great day! I enjoyed meeting people and telling them about the Prothonotary position and my unique qualifications that make me the right choice for York County Prothonotary. I look forward to meeting you too!
