Since he was a teenager, State Represenative Brian Munroe has emulated what it means to be a public servant. At the age of 17, he became a volunteer firefighter and emergency medical technician. Three years later, Brian answered the call of duty and enlisted in the United States Navy serving aboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt. His naval career resulted in a whole host of awards including the Armed Forces medal, the National Defense Service Medal, and the National America Treaty Organization Medal, among others. Brian views education, the economy, and jobs as being intricate, crucial pieces to a thriving society where everyone, regardless of race, sexuality, gender, religion, or creed, must have a fair opportunity to make a living wage and support their families.
Brian’s legislative focuses include protecting and expanding the right of bodily autonomy for women, including reproductive rights. He is also an environmental champion and will work tirelessly to ensure that every Pennsylvanian’s right to clean air and water is protected under the law. Health care, including expanding high-quality, affordable mental health services, is a chief priority of Brian’s. As a cancer survivor, Brian understands the inequities in our health care system and will be a zealous advocate for accessible and affordable health care.
State Representative Chris Pielli, a longtime resident of Chester County, returned to West Chester after serving honorably in the U.S. Army, where he completed the U.S. Army Airborne course (paratrooper course) and received two Army Commendation medals during his service.
As a recent Chester County Recorder of Deeds, Chris reduced filing fees and costs, raised record revenue, and improved and innovated his office in many ways. Most notably, Chris’ office continued operating throughout the pandemic delivering much needed revenue to all Chester County municipalities and school districts to include over $9 million in net County revenue which helped support the local economy.
With help from the GI Bill, Chris attended Temple University Beasley School of Law while working full time. In the General Assembly, Chris pledges to fight to bring Pennsylvanians a living wage and protect the environment, voting rights, a woman’s right to choose, small business owners, Veterans’ rights, and a citizen’s right to equal protection under the law.
