The Plumber’s Perspective

Op-ed By Senator John Kane

Senator John I. Kane shares his thoughts on Governor Shapiros Proposed Budget and its impact on District 9.

Folks, let me tell you something: if being a plumber and union business manager has taught me anything, it taught me about being responsible for the finances of others. It taught me to invest in yourself, your trade, your people, and your community. Every year, Pennsylvania’s budget is a statement of who we are and what we want to be. Governor Shapiro’s budget proposal is exactly what our 9th Senate District needs to keep moving forward.
