It was great to see so many residents attend Climate Can't Wait: Clean Energy Forum at West…
I like helping people. Before my job in Harrisburg, and before serving two terms as Mayor of West Chester, I started out as a teacher. I have dedicated my life to public service and serving the citizens of the 156th district these past two years have been an honor.

If we want to tackle the tough issues facing us today, we are going to have to work together. I think if we can work together on these (six) things, I think we will be well on our way to building a better tomorrow.
Her Brand is building coalitions: Carolyn Comitta is a moderate, commonsense leader, who has built coalitions with politicians and community leaders to get things done for West Chester. A different kind of politician, she believes in working with both parties to get things done!
Fighting for Commonsense Gun Reform: Carolyn supports commonsense changes to help reduce gun violence, including universal background checks. She was a founding member of Mayors Against Illegal Guns. She is a member of Chester County chapter of Moms Demand Action and works with Everytown and Chester County Gun Sense.
As Mayor of West Chester, Carolyn worked to revitalize the downtown area by cleaning up the city, improving parking, and supporting local small business owners. Comitta worked with community leaders to make sure that West Chester grows while still preserving its historic resources and small town feel.
Fair Funding for Education: As a former educator and mother, she has prepared hundreds of kids for college and knows what it takes for them to succeed. She will stand up for our schools and fight to make sure that schools receive fair funding from pre-k to college. Every child should have access to pre-k. She will also fight to make community colleges and university more affordable for families so our kids are not burdened by college debt.
Environmental Champion: Carolyn has been a longtime advocate to protect the environment and prevent drastic climate change. She currently sits on the Board of Directors for the World Information Transfer, an environmental NGO to the United Nations. She fights to protect the environment and make sure to have a healthy planet for our future generations.
Carolyn is a reformer, who is an independent voice in Harrisburg to make sure that our tax dollars are spent wisely. She will strengthen ethics laws by banning gifts to legislators and will even pledge to refuse her own pay if the legislature fails to pass a budget.
