April 10th, 2014 – Today State Representative Erin Molchany’s re-election bid launched the first ad buy of the 2014 race. The ad introduces voters to Erin Molchany’s work on issues like raising the minimum wage and enforcing equal pay for equal work. The ad also features Erin’s father, Fred Molchany, 73.
“I’m glad to have the opportunity to introduce voters in the new 36th to my positions on issues that matter most to South Pittsburgh families.” said Molchany, “I’m also excited for voters to meet my biggest supporter, my dad. I am honored each and every day to advocate for these important issues.”
On Tuesday, Rep. Molchany met privately with President Obama at the White House, discussing her work on HB1890 and the challenges of enforcing pay equity laws at the state level.
“I’m constantly looking for innovative ways we can continue to support all our working families. Equal pay for equal work is not just a women’s issue. It is about sustaining families and strengthening our economy.” said Molchany “Inequity in pay hurts our families and holds our neighborhoods back.”
This Saturday, April 12th at noon Rep. Molchany will be joined by HB1890 coprime sponsor Brian Sims for a meet and greet at her campaign office at 2615 Brownsville Rd in Carrick. The event caps off a week focused on highlighting the fight for pay equity.
