The Issues

Representative Bullock Advocates for Legislation That Matters

Economic Opportunity and Security
Everyone should be able to financially provide for their families. That is why Representative Bullock co-sponsored bills that will raise the minimum wage, alleviate gender wage disparity, and expunge the criminal records of non-violent offenders, and thereby increasing their chances for employment. She also introduced bills to expand the safety net for our most vulnerable residents, including one that will expand eligibility for the state’s prescription discount program for seniors and another that will expand TANF eligibility for more working families.
Our Children
As a mother, Representative Bullock’s number one priority is our children and youth. In Harrisburg, she worked to secure millions in additional funding for pre-k education across the state. In response to high rates of asthma and lead poisoning among our children, she has also become a leading advocate for clean air, clean water, and environmental justice. In 2017, she led the fight to prohibit school lunch shaming statewide, and she recently introduced legislation requiring schools to have an anti-bullying curriculum.
Strong Neighborhoods
Many of our neighborhoods are turning around and we must work together to ensure that all residents are a part of this success. We must also address quality of life issues in our neighborhoods. In 2017, Representative Bullock co-sponsored a bill that addressed nuisance liquor establishments known as Stop and Go’s. She continues to partner with local officials, community organizations and residents to find innovative ways to eliminate blight in our neighborhoods, support growth, secure long-term residents and welcome new neighbors.

Representative Bullock Engages Constituents

Representative Bullock believes in an “office without walls” that serves all neighborhoods of the 195th Legislative District. She regularly makes herself accessible to constituents, attending community meetings and events throughout the District and keeping residents informed through emails, phone calls, social media and traditional print media. Representative Bullock held dozens of “pop-up” offices and other constituent events throughout the District, including the annual Girard Avenue Street Festival and the Senior Spring Fling Luncheon. Through organized public awareness campaigns and outreach efforts, her office distributed over 5,000 diapers and wipes, and hundreds of used books, food baskets, winter coats, and bookbags to families in need.

Representative Bullock Brings Resources to the District

Since her first day in office, Representative Donna Bullock stood firm with Governor Wolf and her fellow Democrats for a budget that adequately funds our schools and human services, and isn’t balanced on the backs of working families.

As a member of the Appropriations Committee, Representative Bullock has worked to bring resources back to Philadelphia, and specifically to the 195th District. Since she has been in office, state agencies have invested more than $7 million in affordable housing, greening iniatives, economic development and other capital projects throughout our neighborhoods. She also worked with her colleagues to bring millions of additional dollars to Philadelphia Schools, and to increase pre-k funding statewide.
