“You deserve to be represented in Harrisburg by someone who understands the challenges faced by ordinary citizens, like you and me.
I’m Christine Tolbert, candidate for State Representative in the 89th District in Franklin County.
I am proud of our community and I want to be your voice in Harrisburg on the important issues that really matter, like restoring full funding to our public schools and making sure that hard-working Pennsylvanians receive the living wages they deserve.
We owe it to future generations to provide our schools with the proper resources that are necessary to educate our children.
Our changing economy and stagnant wages are keeping too many hard-working people in or near poverty.
It’s time to change that.
It’s also time to change the political climate in Harrisburg.
We need term limits for legislators, not long careers in politics for complacent incumbents.
I’m Christine Tolbert, and I want to be your State Representative in the 89th District in Franklin County.
