Our mission Our vision

We need to work together today to tackle tough issues and create a better tomorrow.


A moderate, commonsense leader, Carolyn builds coalitions with politicians and community leaders to get things done. As a legislator, she works with both parties to affect change.

Commonsense Gun Reform

Carolyn is fighting to reduce gun violence through commonsense changes, including universal background checks. In addition to serving as a founding member of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, Carolyn is also a member of the Chester County chapter of Moms Demand Action, and works with Everytown and Chester County Gun Sense.


As Mayor of West Chester, Carolyn worked to revitalize the downtown area by cleaning up the borough, improving parking, and supporting local small business owners. Carolyn worked with community leaders to ensure West Chester continues to grow while preserving its historic resources and small town feel.


As a former educator, and as a mother, Carolyn has prepared hundreds of kids for college, and knows what they need to succeed. Carolyn fights to ensure our schools receive fair funding from pre-k to college. Every child should have access to pre-k, as well as affordable college so our children are not burdened with debt.


Carolyn is a longtime environmental champion. She sits on the Board of Directors for the World Information Transfer, an environmental NGO to the United Nations. Carolyn advocates drastic climate change prevention, so we have a healthy planet to pass on to future generations.

Gerrymandering and Redistricting Reform

Carolyn is an independent voice in Harrisburg, a reformer who makes sure our tax dollars are spent wisely. Carolyn seeks to strengthen ethics laws by banning gifts to legislators and even pledging to refuse her own pay if the legislature fails to pass a budget. Carolyn is a huge supporter of Fair Districts PA, a nonpartisan, statewide coalition of organizations and individuals working to create a process for redistricting that is transparent, impartial, and fair.
