The Issues

Education Funding

Raising the Minimum Wage

Davon is committed to fully funding public education and recognizes current funding system as a constitutional crisis. He aims to address this issue without increasing the financial burden on taxpayers who are already facing difficult financial situations. Davon also understands the importance of out-of-school time programming in keeping youth engaged in productive activities and preventing violence in our communities.

Given the current cost of living, it is imperative that the Commonwealth raises the minimum wage. In addition to this, I propose the creation of grants and loans to support small businesses in keeping up with the new minimum wage once it becomes law. Furthermore, I suggest incentivizing businesses that pay a livable and keep Pennsylvanians employed with tax credits. It is widely acknowledged that local economies thrive when their citizens have more disposable income. It is reasonable to expect businesses that profit billions in our Commonwealth to help alleviate the tax burden on its residents.To achieve this, I intend to reintroduce the "Capital Stock/Foreign Franchise Tax" with a more focused tax base and utilize the funds raised to support small businesses and local economies.

The Care Plan for Families

Protecting Our Elders

Davon is committed to advocating for a Care Infrastructure Plan in Pennsylvania that gives priority to the needs of working families. He is a staunch supporter of paid family and medical leave, as well as affordable child care. Davon firmly believes that families should not have to face the dilemma of choosing between caring for a loved one and losing a paycheck, and that accessible and secure child care should be accessible to all.

Davon's top priority is to provide exceptional care and protection to the elderly population of Westmoreland County. He aims to safeguard them from scams and ensure they can continue to age with grace and dignity. Furthermore, he plans to simplify bureaucratic procedures and track citizen calls to enhance systems and make them more user-friendly for all.

The Issues

Reproductive Rights

Ensuring Equality For Our LGBTQIA+ Community

Davon has always been a staunch advocate of the right to choose. He firmly believes that individuals should have the freedom to make their own medical decisions with their healthcare provider. Davon is fully aware that this issue remains a contentious one in Harrisburg, and he is committed to ensuring that the residents of the 55th district have access to comprehensive healthcare services and reproductive justice.

The 55th district welcomes everyone, but unfortunately, individuals in the LGBTQIA+ community can be denied housing, education, and public resources based on their identity in Pennsylvania. It's crucial to send the PA Fairness Act to Governor Shapiro's desk to ensure equal protections for all. Davon is a strong ally of the LGBTQIA+ community and will always fight for equal opportunities for everyone, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Housing Crisis 

Reimagining Our Westmoreland

The need for safe and secure housing is a fundamental one, yet it remains unattainable for many individuals. Housing injustice is a prevalent problem in our communities, and as a Representative, Davon is dedicated to supporting initiatives that promote home ownership and protect tenants through legislative measures. Davon acknowledges that landlords who strive to offer affordable housing face significant challenges, and he intends to assist them in overcoming these obstacles to ensure that people in the Commonwealth can afford to reside and flourish in their communities.

Davon strongly supports the plan that was passed in 2016 and is committed to meeting with County Commissioners to ensure that he providing the necessary aid for the district's growth and job creation. His dedication to the community is unwavering, and he will continue to work tirelessly to achieve these goals.
