I recently visited Domestic Abuse Project (DAP) of Delaware County, which provides a number of services for victims of domestic violence, including counseling and educational programs, housing and legal services. Pictured with me are Mary Capuzzi, DAP board president (left); and Kathy Stone, DAP executive director.
On Jan. 14, I had the opportunity to honor members of the Army’s 978th Composite Supply Company at a formal send-off ceremony prior to their impending overseas deployment. In addition to thanking them for the important work they do in support of our military, I presented them with a Pennsylvania flag to take with them. Pictured from left are: Spc. Derek Gibson; Sgt. Austin Herrara; me; 1st Sgt. Matthew Krug; Sgt. Jason Stott and Sgt. Nicholas Direnzo.
On Jan. 3, I took the oath of office for the 2017-18 legislative session -- my first full term in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. In all 200 members, including 23 first-term members were sworn in.
I recently toured the Delaware County Children’s Advocacy Center (DCCAC) in Media, which provides a safe environment for abused and neglected children to share their experiences and begin to heal. I am pictured with Patricia Kosinski, the executive director of Family Support Line, which offers prevention programs, specialized treatment, training and advocacy in the prevention of child sexual abuse.
