About this campaign:

Running as an independent, Kate McGraw didn't have built in resources like many first time candidates. Through Crowdpac, Kate created several campaigns around issues she cared about most. These pages allowed Kate to explain her ideas and gain support from artists and animal welfare activists and run a great campaign.

Original content:

A lifelong Independent, Kate McGraw comes from a large working class family of Pennsylvania dairy farmers. Born and raised in Monroe Township, Kate is a 1996 graduate of Cumberland Valley High School, and is an acclaimed regional artist with degrees from Penn State and Brooklyn College, and has completed coursework through the University of Vermont Agricultural Extension.

Kate knows that a well-funded public education is a keystone for success and she will fight to bring renewed prosperity to our public school system in York and Cumberland counties. In addition to public education support, Kate’s platform focuses on farmland preservation, increased health care access for populations including the elderly and those suffering from opioid addiction, and improvements in infrastructure in order to bring better paying jobs to our district.

As an advocate who can speak to the unique nature of our rural and developing region, Kate McGraw will be your trusted Representative for the varied issues facing our communities, schools and families in York and Cumberland counties of the 92nd Legislative District in the General Assembly.

    “As an independant, Kate should be able to "cross the aisle" to actually move ideas forward. She is from a family that understands the importance of food production, the plight of our farmers, and the value of preserving quality soils and farmlands. Food is essential !!”

New fundraising goal raised to $3000 - We're on a roll!

Thank you supporters for making my first campaign fundraiser an overwhelming success! Not only did we raise $1500, we did it at record breaking speed. I have you all to thank for your belief in this campaign, and continued support.

Running for public office comes with a pretty big price tag, and unfortunately, this aspect to running for office can deter some of the best and brightest talent. To keep the momentum going and to draw more people to my campaign, we have decided to raise our fundraising goal to $3000. I think we can do this!

Your contributions to my campaign are sending the message that we want smart, passionate and committed people to have a fair shake at running for public office – regardless of their financial status or placement by a political party.

As an Independent candidate with no major party affiliation, the financial burden is even greater, as most candidates have the financial support of their respective parties. My campaign is about focusing on the concerns of the people I represent, not the concerns of a particular party or well-funded special interest group.

Please share my campaign with anyone who believes that running for public office should be more accessible to those who are better suited for the job, and not just shoe-ins or party placeholders. The more money I can raise, the more people I will be able to reach out to in the 92nd District.

Thank you for your continued support. Onward!

Kate McGraw
