Wendy Ullman for PA House 143
Wendy Ullman is a lifelong Democrat and a 32 year resident of Plumstead Township. Her husband Dan is a small business owner. Together they raised three strong, independent, accomplished daughters. Wendy is a professor at Bucks County Community College where she has taught Composition and Literature for 30+ years.
Wendy is running for office because she has long been dissatisfied with the way Republican politicians in Harrisburg have been conducting business as usual in Harrisburg. Women’s fundamental reproductive rights are under relentless attack. Important issues like raising the minimum wage, instituting paid family and medical leave, and commonsense gun legislation are not being addressed. The billion dollar Natural Gas industry endangers the environment at every step of production while not paying its fair share of revenue. And finally, public education is chronically underfunded, tuition at public colleges and universities is well above the national average, and there is no statewide initiative to invest in Pre-K education. She has detailed proposals to address these issues which can be seen on her website www.wendyullman.com.
Beginning as a student activist in the seventies, Wendy has been an ardent proponent of progressive values all of her adult life. She participated in the first Earth Day in 1970, campaigned for the Equal Rights Amendment, celebrated when Roe V. Wade affirmed women’s right to choose, and championed and embraced the many social advances of the past decades.
Wendy was raised in Central New York and the Adirondacks. She graduated from SUNY Potsdam with a BA in English and from the University of Maine with an MA in English. When she and her husband moved to Pennsylvania, they chose to live in Bucks County because of their shared love of nature.
She has been active in civic and political organizations and is a member of Bucks County Community College Federation of Teachers-AFT, Bucks County Women’s Advocacy Coalition, Moms Demand Action, and Conservation Voters of Pennsylvania.
