Educator. Mother. Advocate.

I am a former elementary music teacher with degrees from Mansfield University (Music Education) and Edinboro University (Educational Leadership). I am currently employed by the PA Music Educators Association as the Director of Education and Events. I've been married to my husband Eric for 6 years, and we have a 4 year old son, Elliott, as well as 4 rescued cats.

I am running for office to be an advocate for public education, bring transparency to the state legislature, and focus on safe schools and communities. The people of the 92nd District haven't had a Democrat on the ballot in 6 years, and I want to help them find their voice in Harrisburg.

it just keeps getting better!

Hello all! I just want to extend a heart-felt THANK YOU for all of your support. It is so awkward to ask for money, almost as awkward as it is to spell the word "awkward," but with supporters like you, I almost (almost) don't have too.

A wonderful supporter Kate McGraw has started a new CrowdPAC campaign to celebrate my endorsement  from MOMS Demand Action for Gun Safety in America. Would you consider supporting us again? You can visit the new campaign here:

https://www.crowdpac.com/campa...

I’ve attached Kate’s campaign story to tell more about why she started the campaign:

The shooting in Parkland, Florida has changed me. I can remember my stoic libertarian-leaning arguments in allegiance to the 2nd Amendment, both by tradition and out of habit. My dad was a Marine and I grew up in a family of avid and skilled hunters. Guns were normal accoutrements that were used responsibly, and were carefully stowed in our home.

Now, while I respect the function and rationale of the 2nd Amendment, I no longer see it as “bullet proof.” I no longer see its inclusion in our nation’s laws as absolute and wholesale in its application. In 2014, dying of a gunshot wound superseded the number of vehicular crash deaths in the United States. There is obviously something not right here.

When the deaths of children are in any way a substantial part of statistical data, legislative action should be a no-brainer. How can there be resistance to changing something that is clearly broken, especially where children are at risk?

Thankfully, voters in the 92nd District have a candidate who is ready to stand up for the people and speak truth to power. Shanna Danielson of Dillsburg, PA has made this promise. A recently endorsed candidate for MOMS Demand Action for Gun Safety in America, Shanna is a true leader in the fight to keep our communities and our children safe. We are no longer willing to accept the status quo. The time is now for properly addressing this very important public health and safety issue.

Shanna has promised to lead the fight for:

*   Universal background checks

*   Increased firearms training

*   Longer waiting periods

*   Licensing

*   Mandatory liability insurance

*   Removal of weapons from domestic abusers

*   Increase the number of school counselors

*   Promote safe storage of firearms

Shanna Danielson is pro 2nd Amendment. She is not anti-gun. Shanna is anti-gun violence. All these measures are meant to empower and promote greater educational initiatives for responsible and proactive Pennsylvania gun owners. These measures also help protect our law enforcement officers who are at greater risk of fatality when guns find their way into the hands of people who should not have them, such as domestic abusers.

Shanna Danielson has been endorsed by MOMS Demand Action, Leap Forward and Run for Something. As a concerned citizen and advocate, Shanna has fought for the passage of SB 501, The Domestic Violence Protection Bill, which quickly disarms dangerous domestic abusers while protecting law enforcement. A former elementary music teacher, Shanna is also the legislative lead for the PA Music Educators Association, where she is the Director of Education and Events.

The 92nd Legislative District where Shanna is running, has been held by Republicans for decades, and the last Democrat to secure a spot on the ballot ran in 2012. The time is now for a fresh voice and new direction for the 92nd District. The voters deserve a real choice on election day, and the best choice is Shanna Danielson for State Representative.

Please support Shanna Danielson today by donating whatever you can—big or small—to make a ripple in Pennsylvania that will reach beyond. In the Pennsylvania midterm election cycle, please come out to VOTE during the Primary Election on May 15th. EVERYONE come out and vote in the General Election on November 6th. Onward!

Thanks,

Kate
