Battle-Tested and Committed to Protecting Our Rights
In an era where our democratic values are at risk, it's crucial to have leaders who are not only experienced but also resilient in the face of adversity. Lisa Gephart is battle-tested and unwavering in her commitment to protect our most fundamental rights, especially the right to vote.
Lisa's resilience was put to the test when she endured an attack while volunteering at the polls in 2021. This harrowing experience would have deterred many, but not Lisa. She emerged more committed than ever to ensuring that every citizen can vote safely and without fear. As your County Commissioner, Lisa will count every vote, work to provide drop boxes and, most importantly, certify election results.
In today's changing landscape, the ability to vote by mail has become increasingly important. Lisa is a strong advocate for mail-in ballots as a secure and accessible voting option. She understands that for many, especially the elderly and those with mobility issues, mail-in ballots are not just a convenience but a necessity. Lisa is committed to fighting any attempts to restrict this essential voting method, ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to exercise their right to vote, whether in person or by mail.
Champion for Mail-In Ballots
A Voice for the Underrepresented
Lisa understands the importance of giving a voice to those who often go unheard. With her working-class roots and years of public service, she brings a unique perspective that is sorely needed in Westmoreland County. Lisa is committed to ensuring that everyone has a seat at the table, not just the privileged few.
No Empty Promises
We've all seen politicians make grand campaign promises, only to break them once they get what they want. Lisa is different. She's not in this for personal gain or political clout. She's in it to make a real difference in the lives of the people she serves. When Lisa makes a promise, she keeps it. Her integrity and dedication are exactly what we need in a County Commissioner.
A Staunch Ally of Labor Unions and Advocate for Collaborative Growth
Lisa Gephart understands that the backbone of any strong community is its workforce. As the daughter of an iron worker, she has a deep-rooted respect for labor unions and the essential role they play in protecting workers' rights. But her support goes beyond traditional advocacy; Lisa believes that as our community seeks to attract new businesses, labor unions must be integral to the process. She advocates for policies that encourage incoming businesses to collaborate with local unions, ensuring that economic growth doesn't come at the expense of workers' rights or well-being. In a political climate where workers are often sidelined, Lisa offers a refreshing and necessary voice. She's not just pro-union; she's pro-worker, and she understands that a strong, unionized workforce is beneficial for businesses, workers, and the community as a whole.
