Meet Wendi

She wants to leave you alone.

Wendi has been a Cranberry Township resident since 2012, along with her husband, Jon, and their three children.  She has been a stay-at-home mother, a small business owner and a community volunteer.  Wendi began to gravitate toward libertarianism while following former Congressman Ron Paul's 2008 campaign for President.  She spent the next few years deeply engaged in the study of political philosophy and economics, and determined that her highest virtues were not reflected by either of the two major parties, but rather in the philosophy of libertarianism.

  • individual liberty

  • private property rights

  • economic freedom

  • sound money

  • anti-war

 

Why Wendi?

Voters deserve a real choice, not the pseudo choice offered by the two major parties. A choice between big government or marginally less big government is hardly a choice at all. Why keep doing the same thing over and over and expect different results? Wendi’s candidacy gives you the option to break this cycle. We hope you’ll take it. 

Wendi on The Issues

 
 

Economy

  • Separate economy and state and let human ingenuity and the market work their magic. Get the government out of the way and the economy will thrive. 
     

  • Will never vote for a tax increase or to empower the political class. 
     

  • Cutting taxes without cutting spending is just a future tax increase in the making. If we’re serious about cutting taxes, we must make serious spending cuts as well.

Education

  • Maximize school choice. Fund students, not systems. It’s not the system’s money. It’s your money, and it should follow your children. More competition within education will incentivize effort and progress, benefiting ALL students. Why are we surprised that the public system is failing our kids? What did we expect from a monopoly that suffers nothing for failure? 
     

  • Reign in administrative costs and get a handle on school budgets. Why are private schools educating students for less money per year than our public schools?

Energy

  • Signal support for Pennsylvania’s energy producers and provide them the assurance they need to unleash energy production. This can serve to quickly lower energy costs in a time when families are desperate for some relief from inflation.

End the War on Drugs

  • We cannot legislate morality. We cannot eradicate drugs or drug users. But we can crush the increasingly unsafe black market and the drug lords who profit from it by ending the drug war, decriminalizing drugs and allowing for drug transactions to operate in an open retail market where there is incentive to provide a safer product in a safe environment. This will drastically reduce violent crime and fentanyl related deaths while reducing the financial and societal costs of incarcerating generations of non-violent drug offenders.  

Defend the Guard Legislation

  • Defend the Guard legislation would prohibit a state's National Guard units from being deployed into active combat without a formal declaration of war by Congress, as provided by the U.S. Constitution. Congress, at the very least, should be expected to do its job before asking our men and women to enter a warzone. This legislation has real potential to apply pressure and put the brakes on beltway bureaucrats who are often far too quick to send our kids off to war. I will fight with everything I have to advance this piece of legislation in the Pennsylvania House. 

Nullification

“[T]he several states who formed that instrument [the Constitution], being sovereign and independent, have the unquestionable right to judge of its infraction; and that a nullification, by those [states], of all unauthorized acts….is the rightful remedy.” -Thomas Jefferson

  • Washington bureaucrats don’t know what’s best for Pennsylvanians. Pennsylvanians know what’s best for Pennsylvanians. The federal government has gathered far too much power over our daily lives. This is now all too evident after the tyrannical dictates of the Covid regime. We must use any means we have at the state level to reign in unconstitutional actions by the federal government. As a state legislature we can nullify unconstitutional federal laws and authoritarian mandates. Many states have already successfully utilized nullification to subvert federal overreach. For example, every state that has legalized marijuana for recreational use (now 19 states + D.C.) has in effect nullified federal law.
