CHRIS PIELLI for PA State Representative 156th District.

Public Service

Long ago I pledged to support, obey, and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic and I am resolved to make that pledge again to all of you. As your State Representative of the 156th I will fight with every fiber of my being to give us a living wage, protect our environment, our voting rights, a woman’s right to choose, a citizen’s right to enjoy the equal protection of the law no matter their race, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or religion, and I will fight to insure the strength and stability of our Republic for years to come. My promise is that I will give you my all, knowing that in these trying times, I can offer you no less. And so, I am ready, able and willing to pick up the banner and continue the good fight fully knowing that either we will win, or we will continue the struggle with determination in our hearts to fight the good fight until freedom, equality, and liberty is won by us all.
