On the Trail, 4/30/22

Hey, Team Shapiro here — and we’ve got a lot to catch up on! 

We’ve been on the road traveling from county to county across Pennsylvania, meeting folks where they are, and hearing about the challenges they’re facing in their communities.

We want to share some of our favorite memories from the past few weeks with you, just in case you missed them. 

Let’s start in Stroudsburg, where we rallied together with the Monroe County Democratic Committee to fight for everything on the ballot this November — and folks showed up in force!

We spoke about the challenges we’re facing in Pennsylvania, from rising costs to building an economy that works for everyone — and Josh talked about his plans to tackle those issues as Governor.

If there’s one thing we can all agree on, whether you’re from Monroe County or Allegheny County, rising costs have affected every one of us.

Team Shapiro then met between Monroe and Allegheny — in Enola, Pennsylvania, in Cumberland County — where Josh announced his plan to cut taxes, lower costs, and put money back into the pockets of Pennsylvanians. He’s going to eliminate the cell phone tax, expand the Property Tax Rent Rebate program, and give every Pennsylvanian with a personal car a $250 gas refund (per car, for up to four cars!).

A few hours later, Josh and Austin were rallying supporters in Lebanon County, where folks from across Central Pennsylvania turned out to hear more about Josh’s vision for our Commonwealth — and how they could get involved.

The message that Josh kept hearing was all too familiar: Pennsylvanians need a leader they can count on.

These are uncertain times to say the least — and amid a crushing rise in prices, unprecedented attacks on the right to choose, and attacks on our democracy from the GOP every day, Josh will not stop taking on those big fights for Pennsylvania families.

Josh has made clear that he’ll always uphold a woman’s right to choose — and his record proves that he’ll be a champion for women’s rights as Governor.

And that brings us to Philadelphia, where Josh was endorsed by the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) at the National Constitution Center, where he met with activists to discuss what’s on the line this November — from the right to choose to expanding reproductive health care.

From there, Team Shapiro traveled to Harrisburg, the Capital of Pennsylvania to share Josh’s message of solidarity with the Association of Pennsylvania State College & University Faculties (APSCUF) — a union led by and for faculty, teachers, and coaches from across Pennsylvania.

Workers’ rights are on the ballot this November, and Josh is ready to fight for them.

Later that week, Team Shapiro met with environmental activists and leaders from across the Commonwealth to discuss Josh’s vision for Pennsylvania — and Josh was honored to stand by their side, and to receive their endorsements for Governor of Pennsylvania.

Then, Team Shapiro was back on the road to Dauphin County — to share the big news about Josh’s endorsements and to hear about what’s on the minds of voters.

Team Shapiro is leaving no community behind — and is traveling all across Pennsylvania to take everyone along in this fight.

There’s a lot of work ahead of us, and thousands of miles to track — but Josh and the people of Pennsylvania are ready to get it done.

Six months down. Six to go. Let’s win.
