Last year, I contacted Rep. Erin Molchany’s office to express my concerns regarding the Highmark-UPMC issue. Ms. Molchany sent me a letter expressing her concerns regarding the Highmark-UPMC issue and some of the steps she was taking to resolve it.
I called her office to thank her for the letter, and while on the phone, I told her staff person that a senior citizen who lived in another district was having problems getting her property tax rebate from Harrisburg.
Ms. Molchany’s staff person asked me about the specifics of this situation so that she could help this lady. Her staff person said it did not matter that this lady was not a constituent; what mattered was that this lady needed help. Ms. Molchany’s office contacted this lady, got the issue resolved and this lady had her property rebate check in approximately three weeks.
The fact that Ms. Molchany responded to a constituent’s letter and assisted a senior citizen who is not her constituent but needed help says to me Ms. Molchany, who is running in the Democratic primary in the newly constituted 36th District, is a representative who deserves our support!
