The Fightin’ 45th
The 45th district consists of the following municipalities: Coraopolis, Neville, Emsworth, Ben Avon, Robinson, Stowe, Kennedy, Carnegie, and parts of Scott Township. It almost follows the I-79 corridor west of Pittsburgh, although the odd shapes in the southern tip and the fact that it includes only parts of Scott Township seem like evidence of gerrymandering, which is one issue I will fight once elected your representative.
Here is an interactive map of the 45th district:
While my legislative priorities would of course focus on issues facing the 45th, I intend to represent everyone in the Pittsburgh area that feels they aren’t currently represented.
