I’m Elizabeth Moro and I am running for Congress in the 7th District of Pennsylvania. I have dedicated my life to public service and I believe America deserves better than the dysfunction we see in Washington. America is a fusion of nationalities and religions, but the tradition we have in this country of welcoming and respecting others who are different is under attack.
I was one of twelve children in a working class home, so I know how hard my parents worked to put food on the table and provide us with an education, healthcare, and other necessities.
My family sat down for dinner each night at a BIG table. Visitors were always welcome to join us and we always made room for them. My family’s welcoming mindset shaped the way I live and see the world today. I want my government to make room at the table and to represent everyone.
I work now as a realtor broker, and I sit in hundreds of living rooms every year. I see how hard it is for middle class families to afford a home, college, and all the same things my family struggled to pay for.
I’ve also been a single mom, so I know what it’s like to have to raise a family alone. Now, my husband and I work together and have committed ourselves to our community. We raise money for the homeless, conservation, advocate on behalf of our environment, and work for the protection of human rights. Vince and I are raising five children and we want them to have the same opportunity to go to college and pursue their American Dream.
And that’s what my candidacy is about: the American Dream...for all Americans not just the one percent. Sadly, our government’s table has gotten frighteningly small. I will work to change that as your Congresswoman. I will proudly serve you and will work hard to make sure your voice is heard in Washington.
