Remembering Private Edwin Tubbs

It was an honor to take part in the ceremony dedicating the West Chestnut Street Bridge in Coudersport as the Private Edwin Tubbs Memorial Bridge. Private Tubbs died serving our country in Vietnam in January 1969. For his bravery and sacrifice, he received both the Bronze Star and Purple Heart. Pictured with me, left to right, are Brittany Freer, Laura Tubbs Hemphill, Sen. Joe Scarnati, Kristine Fessendin, Richard “Critter” Hemphill Jr. and Russell Tubbs Jr. Additional photos from the event are posted here


Reminder: Kane Open House Dec. 11

Please join me for an Open House at my new legislative office in Kane on Thursday, Dec. 11, from 3-6 p.m.

As a result of the legislative redistricting process, Kane and Mount Jewett, as well as the townships of Hamilton, Hamlin, Lafayette and Wetmore, were added to the 67th Legislative District. To ensure your continued access to state government services, the Kane office, formerly operated by Rep. Kathy Rapp, will remain open and staffed by Jill Thompson, who has served the area for more than 18 years.

All are welcome to stop by to say hello and learn more about services available. The office is located at 55 Fraley St. and can be reached by phone at 814-837-0880.

I will continue to operate offices in Bradford and Coudersport and hold regular outreach hours in Emporium and Port Allegany. Stay up to date on legislative news by visiting me on Facebook or stopping by my website

State Should Fund Rural Community College Now

As you may remember, this summer the General Assembly passed legislation to allow for the creation of a rural regional community college to serve our area. As part of the budget process, we appropriated $1.2 million in funding to help establish the college. Unfortunately, the administration and the Department of Education are interpreting the law in such a way that they believe the funds can’t be released until the college is actually established. Read my statement calling for the release of the funds here.


I stopped by the IU9 in Port Allegany this week to talk with teachers and staff about early education funding. I also took the opportunity to visit with the kids, who were very happy to show me what they could make with their toys!
