In this public service position I hold, I am inspired to continue working hard for your family, because I want all families to share in the high quality of life we are so fortunate to benefit from and enjoy in our area. My record of legislative accomplishments has focused on supporting this quality of life model for you and your families.
I feel particularly passionate about preserving our community because of my deep local roots. I grew up here, and attended the Great Valley School District from kindergarten through 12th grade. I have geared my career path over the years around remaining in this region. As a lifelong resident of our area, I live yet today in the same neighborhood in which my parents raised and guided me. It is here that my wife Jean and I are proudly raising our son, Alex, currently a seventh grader.
Our area is indeed a most special place for families.
One of the many favorable attributes of our area is the generally low crime rates. Considerable credit must go to the outstanding local police on patrol in our areas. The ranks of our local departments are filled with officers who are skilled, dedicated and professional.
I partner with our first responder organizations, both law enforcement and volunteer fire departments, to help ensure they have the resources needed to perform their public safety functions effectively.
I also work with prosecutors and the court system to put in place tough standards in the criminal justice system when it comes to confronting those who simply will not abide by the laws of our society, and disrupt the peaceful lives of others. Upholding high standards of law and order is essential for supporting a society that flourishes economically, educationally and culturally.
The value of being able to go about one’s daily life in communities that are generally safe and peaceful is truly priceless, and makes all the difference for the quality of life that is possible.
I’d like to take this opportunity to ask for your vote as I run for re-election as representative.
I am running for re-election because this opportunity you have granted me to serve you in public office continues to prove motivating and rewarding as I work on your behalf. As detailed on my website and elsewhere, I continue to achieve results that are in the best interests of our families and community.
My vision is based on continuing to champion the high quality of life that we share locally, and are so blessed to benefit from and enjoy. As your representative in Harrisburg, my top priority is to protect our way of life. Like you, I am grateful the local area we simply call "home" has been ranked as one of the best locales in the entire United States in which to live, work and raise a family.
To me, our quality of life model is based on five pillars that form the foundation of my votes and policy record on your behalf:
• Effective and Judicious Use of Tax Dollars
• Vibrant Local Economy and Jobs Base
• Top Performing Schools and Youth Activities
• Desirable Neighborhoods and Attractive Landscapes
• Safe Communities and Flourishing Culture
My re-election pledge to you is to keep advancing my legislative agenda that sustains this quality of life model for the present, and does so in a manner fiscally responsible for the future of our kids and grandkids. I also promise to continue to bring you my signature community events that all look forward to, such as Kids Fest, Senior Expo, and Environmental Stewardship & Recycling Days, among many others!
If you have any questions that you would like answered before deciding how to vote, I would be pleased to address them. Contact me via Duane@FriendsofDuaneMilne.com.
As always, thank you for the amazing privilege of serving you as your state representative in Harrisburg. To continue our productive partnership, I am asking for your vote...please!
All the best,
I am honored to serve in this community service role, and I thank you for the privilege. In this position, I am focused on advocating for and advancing beneficial legislation and sound public policy.
The role of representative also entails ensuring the public learns about and is helped with programs, services and assistance that are of value to citizens. To that end, I am proud of the extensive record of constituent services that I offer citizens, and the results attained for them.
In addition, I also offer a rich and robust menu of marquee community events, such as:
- Environmental Stewardship: Recycling and Shredding Event
- Kids Fest
- Share the Bounty/Clothing Drive
- 50+ Expo
In a new term, I will continue my track record of being visible at local events and throughout the community, and remaining accessible and available to you.
I am keenly aware of the value of a top rate education, and how critical such is for preparing our students for life and career success.
Like others graduating from our outstanding local schools, I was academically prepared to succeed at college and, in my case, go on to earn my doctorate. The foundation of my local education has proved instrumental in all my subsequent opportunities and chances to contribute to the greater good.
I remain grateful for the quality of local education I received, and this inspires me to help make it possible for others to benefit from similar educational opportunities. That’s why I have helped achieve record levels of state investment in k-12 education, supported parochial schools, and pushed policies to make college affordable. Plus, I have sought to roll back mandates and emphasize local control of education.
I do all this because an excellent education yields lifetime benefits for individuals, and is of critical value for our society in many ways.
