Tara Zrinski - Candidate for State House

Pennsylvania ranks 45th for women in elected politics -- and it’s disgraceful. I’m proud to be one of the women running for state representative this year. But it’s not just about being a woman, it’s about supporting legislation that protects things like a woman’s right to a fair wages. Add your name to the link below and stand with the women who are fighting to serve the communities of Pennsylvania if you agree that it's long overdue to raise our 'D' grade!
