Issues

Campaign themes

Binder's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Education

  • Excerpt:"As your State Representative I will fight to restore funding to ensure that the children of Pennsylvania and the businesses of Pennsylvania can thrive by Harrisburg properly investing in education."

Environment

  • Excerpt:"I believe in protecting the environment and allocating appropriate funds to compensate Pennsylvanians for the extraction of Pennsylvania’s natural resources."

Economy

  • Excerpt:"As your State Representative, I will look for ways to create more jobs for Pennsylvanians while improving our infrastructure. Chester County has many of our state’s beautiful historic bridges, many of which are in need of repair, as are bridges and roads across Pennsylvania. Harrisburg should be creating jobs for Pennsylvanians, repairing Pennsylvania’s infrastructure, and looking to new sources for the funds to do so."

Voter Rights

  • Excerpt:"I am opposed to creating solutions to problems that don’t exist. Indeed, there is not one instance shown of voter fraud that this Voter ID bill would address. By requiring identification prior to voting, Republicans are merely attempting to create roadblocks to voting by specific groups, an action akin to a modern day poll tax. In fact, as found in other states, the bill could be unconstitutional."
