(HARRISBURG) – Today, Senator Ryan Aument (R-36) announced the launch of his “Restore & Reimagine Pennsylvania” initiative, designed to collect ideas and feedback from constituents and community leaders on how to restore, rebuild, and reimagine a stronger Pennsylvania.
“There is no doubt that COVID-19 has completely changed life as we knew it,” said Aument. “These past few weeks have been marked by struggles, pain, confusion, change, frustration, and even death. It certainly has not been easy. But it is human nature to adapt to difficult situations, and to innovate and create new ways of life out of tragedy. The COVID-19 pandemic is no different. Pennsylvanians have and must continue to adapt and overcome the new challenges created by this pandemic.
“So I’m inviting you to adapt and overcome, to innovate and create new ideas with me. I have always said throughout my time in the General Assembly that the residents of Lancaster County are my greatest resource to helping me do my job well. With your input, I’m confident that we can restore, rebuild, and reimagine a stronger Pennsylvania together.”
Over the next couple of months, Aument will be collecting feedback from Lancaster County residents – their thoughts, ideas, challenges, and solutions – to issues that they see and experience firsthand in their communities, schools, businesses, and families. According to Aument, there are three ways that residents can submit their feedback or ideas:
- Call 717-429-6652 and leave their full name, zip code, and a brief description of their idea.
- Fill out his web contact form with a brief description of their idea.
- Attend one of his outreach events to tell him about their idea. A schedule of upcoming outreach events is available here.
Aument also encourages residents to fill out his Restore & Reimagine PA Survey, as well as review the progress documented on his COVID-19 Response Timeline to see what has already been accomplished in the fight against the coronavirus.
Senator Aument assured residents that he is not simply collecting their feedback for the sake of collecting feedback, but so that he can share that feedback with his colleagues in the Senate and use those ideas as a blueprint to inform a legislative agenda for the next few years as we seek to reimagine, rebuild, and restore a stronger Pennsylvania in the aftermath of this pandemic.
“While getting folks back to work in a safe manner that will not jeopardize public health remains my priority in the near term, it is critical that we begin planning now for a robust recovery in the long-term,” said Aument.
“I have long believed that strong families, vibrant communities, great schools, and a diverse economy are foundational to an opportunity society. I have some ideas to share with you, but I would like to hear your ideas about how we can restore and reimagine a stronger Pennsylvania together!”
