State Representative, District 12
Wendi has been a Cranberry Township resident since 2012, along with her husband, Jon, and their three children. After years as a stay-at-home mother, Wendi opened a small business which she operated for eight years. Since then Wendi’s focus has been on her family, volunteering her time in the community, and devoting time to the study of political philosophy and economics.
Wendi first developed an interest in politics during the 2008 election cycle, where she first heard from libertarian-Republican candidate for President, Congressman Ron Paul, and went on to volunteer with the 2012 campaign. His presence in the debates ignited in many a passion for philosophy and a deep dive into the relationship between government and economics. She observed how averse the establishment is to a candidate so committed to the principles of individual liberty, limited government and fiscal responsibility, and realized there isn’t a home for such candidates within the two-party system.
As a candidate for State Representative, Wendi hopes to introduce more people to libertarian ideas and communicate how liberty-based policy would produce better outcomes than a reliance on government. Her top issues are reducing tax burdens across the board, particularly in property and school taxes, enacting school choice and drastically change K-12 education to fund students instead of systems, and incentivizing Pennsylvania energy production by getting bureaucrats out of the way.
