Let’s be patient; Make sure every vote counts

(Nov 05, 2020)

As of this writing, there are approximately 750,000 Pennsylvania votes that need to be counted. That is more than 750,000 Pennsylvanians who lawfully casted their vote and deserve to be heard. Counting every citizen’s legal, timely vote is imperative. As workers securely make progress on tallying the results, we must be patient. This process may take several days, but the integrity and sanctity of the vote in our state must be maintained. Last Fall, in a bipartisan showing, the Pennsylvania General Assembly agreed to allow for mail-in ballots. Since then, House Democrats have made many efforts to help clarify any confusion about the process and give local election boards the tools needed to securely and expeditiously process votes cast by mail. Unfortunately, our Republican colleagues chose political gamesmanship over a genuine effort to ensure a smooth election. Their inaction failed to allow for the early processing of ballots received – as 32 other states permit-- and, in turn, why there is a delay in knowing the outcome of this election. The ambiguity in the law did not address their local official’s concerns; nor does it protect every Pennsylvanian’s constitutional right to vote and our obligation to make sure those votes are counted. Now, more than ever, we must ensure that we uphold the freedoms guaranteed in our state and nation’s constitution. In these unprecedented times, the voters must have the final say, not the candidates or Read more

WYOMISSING, Jan. 24 – State Rep. Mark Rozzi joined the IM ABLE Foundation to present an adaptive bike to a community member today.

The IM Able Foundation works to remove obstacles that prevent people with disabilities from being physically active, using grants, donations and sponsorships to provide equipment to people with physical or cognitive challenges. “I’ve been proud to support the IM Able Foundation’s great work to make sure individuals with disabilities have access to often expensive equipment that can help them remain active and healthy,” said Rozzi, D-Berks. “I look forward to see what Steve can accomplish with the help of this bike.” Kaag added: “Since he started coming to the IM ABLE Foundation, Steve has been motivated to achieve more than he ever thought he would be able to do after he lost his leg. He’s such a worthwhile grant candidate. We’re so grateful for the community’s support because it means that Steve can redefine what is possible.” More information on the IM ABLE Foundation is available at imablefoundation.org . Read more
