US Representative
Christina Finello Website
Christina's Message: "When I was 6 months pregnant with my first child, my husband changed jobs and his new insurance provider told me that I might not be able to receive coverage because my pregnancy was considered a 'pre-existing condition.'
"Our family’s experience has driven my passion for fixing broken systems — from ensuring veterans have access to quality care to improving outcomes for people struggling with substance abuse and mental health issues. My work has shown me firsthand how America’s health care system is slanted in favor of insurance and drug companies, instead of the people seeking the care they deserve.
"I understand that families in our district are forced to make tough choices every day — between paying for necessary health care or paying off a student loan bill or putting food on the table — because I’ve been there with my own family.
"My promise to you is that I’ll go to Congress to change Washington and put PA-01 families first again. I’ll fight to lower the cost of insurance and prescription drugs, decrease the burden of student debt, and provide real retirement security for our seniors. And I’ll never forget the community I came from."
US Representative
Skylar Hurwitz Website
Skylar Hurwitz is a technology consultant and environmentalist born and raised in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. He split his youth equally between Yardley and New Hope-Solebury, worked in Washington, DC for nearly a decade, and has been running a small business in his hometown since 2018. His time in DC provided key insights into what is broken in Washington - and what must be done to fix the government so it starts working for everyday Americans again.
Skylar gained experience working directly on Capitol Hill briefly serving in the office of Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney of New York and working on a SunShot initiative grant at the National Association of Regional Councils that focused on lowering the bureaucratic costs of solar installations. Skylar then spent nearly three years managing a $30 million grant portfolio and doing extensive international travel for Conservation International in Arlington, Virginia. The program protected the most vulnerable biodiverse regions on Earth by building the capacity of locals in those countries to manage problems self-sufficiently.
Skylar's campaign is about uniting for a Fair Tax Platform that protects our planet and provides a more secure future for every American. Every policy proposed by this campaign can be paid for in a way that increases the annual disposable income for individuals making $250,000 or less and couples making $500,000 or less. Together, we can provide all Americans with a baseline level of security and stability that makes our communities safer.
