Senador John Kane

Artículo de opinión del Senador John I. Kane

Ha pasado poco más de un año desde que juré el cargo de Senador estatal por el Distrito Senatorial, que representa partes de los condados de Delaware y Chester. Durante ese tiempo, me he reunido con propietarios de negocios, líderes comunitarios, veteranos, educadores, enfermeras y vecinos. He conectado con ustedes en eventos del distrito y jornadas de puertas abiertas, a través de llamadas telefónicas y sobre Zoom. Y ha sido un honor para aprender acerca de los temas que más importan a usted y conectar con usted y sus familias sobre el trabajo que estoy haciendo aquí en el distrito y de vuelta en Harrisburg.

It’s sometimes easiest to talk about this job by the numbers – and there are a lot of numbers I’m proud of. We’ve resolved almost 1000 constituent cases and answered over 8,000 constituent questions. I’ve hosted 30 events and cosponsored over 400 bills and resolutions. Two bills that I fought hard for, the 5G Deployment Bill and the bill creating the Broadband Development Authority, were signed into law. Thanks to your generosity, we collected nearly 300 pounds of food for the Chester County Food Bank, over $500 worth of items for the Domestic Abuse Project of Delaware County, and 3,000 diapers for local parents.

Behind each of these numbers is a conversation – something I’ve learned from you, a suggestion for legislation, a struggle you or your family might have been facing. I’ve introduced bills because of emails you’ve sent and pushed for changes you’ve suggested from the windows of your cars during shredder events. That’s important to me, because I know what it feels like to see a government that isn’t working for you. I know what it’s like to wait in line for unemployment and to wonder how you were going to put food on the table. I’ve been there. And I want you to know that while I can’t promise to agree with you on every issue, I can promise to hear your side of the story and be honest with you about mine. That’s what I’ve worked hard to do in my first year as a legislator.

My office and I are always here to help with any state-related issues. Even if you’re not sure we can help, reach out – if we can’t, we’ll connect you to someone who can. Call or email my district offices to schedule an appointment or with any questions you might have. It’s the honor of a lifetime to work for you.
