WHAT INSPIRES ME ABOUT MY WORK
“I help everyday people—not insurance companies or Corporate America. I’m inspired by my heritage—my great-great grandfathers were in the United Mine Workers Union as were my great grandfathers. All four of my grandparents were in unions and so were my parents. I work hard to uphold my family’s tradition of service.”
AWAY FROM WORK
“I spend my time with my son Angelo, a senior at Penn State. If we’re not together, I spend time with other family and friends. I read a lot—mostly articles related to the law and politics relevant to my job. I also enjoy sports, especially football, since I played football through college.”
