Position Papers
Natural Gas Drilling
"As a scientist, I'm trained to form opinions using evidence-based research. Unfortunately, there is still too much we don't know about fracking. That leads me to conclude that we should not allow natural gas drilling until we are sure that it is no longer a public health concern. As a Member of Congress, I will work hard to keep the fracking moratorium in Bucks and Montgomery Counties in place."

Democratic Candidate, PA-08

Science Research & Development
"We need scientific research to find cures, bring forth new technologies, create new industries, and grow our economy. The United States is at a crossroads, and it is time for there to be a leader in Congress who will stand up and work towards creating a pro-science policy agenda."

NSA and National Security
"I support the intelligence agencies working hard to protect our safety, but I am deeply concerned that the federal government has gotten too big since September 11th. It is important to maintain security without trampling civil liberties."
