Past:State Representative—District 44
Michele Knoll’s priorities are: jobs, education, fiscal responsibility, health care, the environment and women’s role in government. As an educator in elementary schools, preschools and university level, as well as serving as School Board Director some 20 years ago, she understand the needs of students and educators and the concerns of parents from academics to health care issues. She believes in advocating for families so that supports for both child and adult education will lead to future meaningful employment as this is critical for the future, overall welfare of our region. In line with employment, work should be done to build fiscal responsibility and balance the state budget, especially in the areas of health care and the environment. Michele is well informed about environmental issues and concerned that changes in Washington will affect states negatively. She feels it is essential that we adequately fund and staff the Department of Environmental Protection in the State of Pennsylvania, to protect our regions clean air and water for generations to come.
Michele is ready to tackle a host of issues, such as education, the environment, and Veterans Affairs. These are all issues that she is concerned that the current administration in Washington is in the process of dismantling with great prejudice. Being in Pennsylvania’s General Assembly will give her the ability to directly influence, for the good and welfare of the people, legislation that impacts Pennsylvania and the nation.
