U.S. Congress - PA 1st District

 

Ashley Ehasz

Our experiences shape us. I am a veteran and a patriot. Watching the riots escalate during the January 6th insurrection, I knew that politics as usual was no longer an option. We don't need politicians like Fitzpatrick, who turn their heads from their party's violent rhetoric. We need new leadership. I know the struggles of working families in Bucks and Montgomery Counties firsthand. Lack of access to good-paying jobs, mental health services, substance abuse treatment, and affordable education has held our communities back, all while we deal with skyrocketing drug prices, existential threats to abortion access, student loan debt, a stagnant minimum wage, and the destructive consequences of climate change. Something’s got to change, and Republican Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick has simply failed to get the job done. I'm not a politician. I'm not going to Washington to cozy up to lobbyists — I am going to roll up my sleeves and solve problems. When it comes to affording things like a mortgage, health care, and student loans, I have skin in the game.

PA State Treasurer

 

Erin McClelland

A native of Western Pennsylvania, I was born, raised, and currently live in a working class steel mill town on the outskirts of Allegheny County. I am the beneficiary of four generations of organized labor and relish the fact that my hometown still has an operational rolling steel mill. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh in 1997 and Master of Science concentrating in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from Chatham University (formerly Chatham College) in 2002. I spent 15 years of my career as a substance abuse and mental health counselor and served as a program manager and director of treatment systems in multiple Western PA counties. In 2003, I began working at the Institute for Research, Education and Training in Addiction (IRETA) as their Process Improvement Manager. My work was dedicated to reducing the 10-year information gap between best-practice research and clinical integration throughout Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey. .
