Molchany adds progressive support in re-election bid

April 15th, 2014 – One day after receiving the endorsement from the Pittsburgh Federation of Teachers, today, Rep. Molchany announced endorsements from Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania PAC, the Women’s Campaign Fund, the Steel City Stonewall Democrats, and the Gertrude Stein Political Club of Greater Pittsburgh.  Make these bullets to stand out.

“I am so grateful to add these groups that represent real democratic values to my re-election team. I am a vocal advocate for democratic causes like marriage equality and protecting the right of a woman to choose and I look forward to continuing to fight for our values in Harrisburg.” said state Rep. Molchany.

Sari Stevens, the Executive Director of Planned Parenthood PA Advocates noted, “To say this endorsement was an easy decision for us is a monumental understatement. Erin brings energy and passion to the fight for women’s reproductive healthcare, while her opponent has spent twenty years voting time after time to restrict women’s rights and health. In the last 12 years, Harry Readshaw has cast 31 votes against access to reproductive healthcare, even voting against an amendment that would have protected patients from the harassment and intimidation of protesters. Erin Molchany represents the views of the voters of the 36th district, and we are thrilled to be investing in this important race.”

Tonight Reps. Molchany and Readshaw will meet at 7pm in the St Paul of the Cross Monastery for a candidates forum hosted by the South Side Slopes Neighborhood Association.
