Swearing-In Day Begins 2021-22 Legislative Session on January 5

New and returning members of the Pennsylvania Senate will be sworn into office to begin the 2021-22 Legislative Session on January 5.

Swearing-in day will look a bit different this year due to COVID-19. Only a limited number of guests will be permitted on the Senate Floor and in the Senate Gallery for the ceremony, and the usual television viewing areas in the Capitol Complex will be closed.

I’m grateful and honored to have been elected to represent the people of the 25th District.  Thank you for the honor.

A live stream of the ceremony will be available at

Property Tax Rent Rebate Deadline is December 31

Time is running out for eligible seniors and individuals with disabilities to submit applications for the state’s popular Property Tax Rent Rebate program for taxes or rent paid in 2019. Applications must be completed and postmarked by December 31 in order to be considered.

Applicants can file online or print claim forms to be mailed to the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue.

If you have already submitted an application, you can check the status of your claim at by selecting “Where’s my Property Tax/Rent Rebate” or by calling 1-888-222-9190.

Virtual PA Farm Show Kicks Off January 9

I’ve always enjoyed the Pennsylvania Farm Show and learned new things every time I’ve attended. 

Although all in-person events for the 2021 Pennsylvania Farm Show have been cancelled due to COVID-19, many exhibits and events will still take place virtually.  This is an opportunity for those who have not been able to attend in the past a little bit of an idea about what the Farm Show is about.  A schedule of events details the exhibits that will be available each day from January 9-16.

The exhibits will be focused on education and awareness, and the competitive events will not require the purchase of an animal. Forms and registration information are available here.

Like all of the competitors and exhibitors as well as other regular attendees I look forward to getting this show back up and running at the Farm Show Complex next year.

Goodbye 2020! — Happy New Year!

After one of the most challenging and tumultuous years in recent history, many Pennsylvanians are anxious to turn the page on 2020 and begin looking forward to a brighter year ahead. As we close the book on this year, I extend my warmest wishes to all of the people of the 25th District, Pennsylvania and around the country for a happier, healthier and more successful year in 2021!
