1. What do you do for living?
I work at McKesson Pharmacy Automation and Technology Services as an EDI Specialist. I help Pharmacy’s communicate their daily stock uses to their suppliers so those drugs are refilled for the next business day.
2. When did you get involved in politics?
I have been in politics as long as I can remember. I used to work the polls as a teenager, been a regional director for the statewide Young Democrats, and I have been a committee man for the last 7 years.
3. Describe your current role with the Beaver County Democratic Party.
I am acting as a mentor to the Young Democrats, and I was recently asked to serve on the executive board as the Parliamentarian. I am also a Hopewell Township committee person.
4. How has chairman Gentile re-energized the party since he came on board?
Lou has reached out to bring people, and has cautioned the dangers of thinking small when it comes to politics. He has made it a priority to get new people involved with the party, fill vacancy’s on the committee, and restore the Young Democrats of Beaver County.
5. What do you see as the biggest issue facing this generation (politically speaking) and how can we fix it?
I believe that today’s youngest voting generation has forgotten what we can accomplish together as Americans. They see themselves alone in this country against other Americans fighting for an “American Dream” that is really been sabotaged by the wealthiest 1 percent. The 1 percent that wants to divide us as a people and culture by crushing unions, and keeping wages low. We fix this by coming together and voting for strong democratic candidates to help the growth of unions, reverse unfair trade practices, and raise the standard of living in this country so that we can all prosper together.
