Upholding Law and Order in Butler County

Click here to see my interview with Fox and Friends.

Butler County recognizes the importance of, and encourages, legal immigration. Our community and its institutions were built by immigrants, and we enjoy the uniqueness of many cultures here. Many still are coming to enrich our community and build new lives here. However, the county is facing significant problems with drug trafficking and human trafficking.

The sanctuary designation did not reflect our intentions or practices. We are a county of security and law and order. Being listed on the internet as a sanctuary county only served as a calling card for crime.

We are committed to abiding by the constitutions of the United States and the Commonwealth and encourage individuals to come here legally. 

National School Choice Week


On Jan. 25, I spoke at the PA Coalition of Public Charter Schools CEO Summit in recognition of National School Choice Week. Click here for more information and to access photos.

As we continue to search for innovative pathways to best enhance our students’ educational experience, I spoke about the need to give parents the proper authority to choose which learning institution best serves their child’s needs. I also got the chance to fly a drone and learn about the robotics, cybersecurity and aquaponics lab at a nearby charter school. I can’t imagine having had access to these resources as a student. In addition to the tech works facility, the Commonwealth Charter Academy is constructing a “med works” facility to prepare students for a career in medicine.

Cranberry Township Volunteer Fire Company’s Annual Meeting and Awards Dinner

On Jan. 14, I had the honor of attending and presenting citations to the brave men and women at the Cranberry Township Volunteer Fire Company’s Annual Meeting and Awards Dinner. On behalf of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and our community, thank you and your families for your incredible service and sacrifice. Averaging a response time of 7.5 minutes and 2.5 calls per day, our community wouldn’t be what it is without you.

Touring the Harmony Museum


My staff and I visited the historic Harmony Museum to check out the great preservation work they are doing with artifacts and architecture. Fixtures like these are so important to teaching our communities about what transpired before our time. I look forward to the work ahead to ensure this site will continue its tremendous work! 

Tour of The Children’s Institute of Pittsburgh


I thoroughly enjoyed learning about all of the good work The Children’s Institute of Pittsburgh does to help the kids and families in our state. Thank you for what you do and thank you for having me!

LOVEly Storytime in Cranberry 


Ahead of Valentine’s Day, I had a wonderful time reading the book “If Animals Said I Love You” to pre-school children at the Cranberry Public Library! I look forward to doing more holiday pre-school readings at each of our district libraries!

Commemorating the Cranberry Public Library

I had the best time celebrating the success of the Cranberry Public Library’s Makerspace. Such a unique and beneficial amenity — I encourage you to check it out!

Corridors of Opportunity

It was a busy day for team Scialabba. I attended the “Corridors of Opportunity” event for the “Greater Cranberry Area” and heard from representatives in the development, real estate, municipal and educational fields. We discussed the growth to date and where we need to go from here.

At the same times, Julia from my District Office attended the Regional Broadband Summit in Cranberry Township hosted by the Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission (SPC).

That event educated local governments, nonprofits, partners and the public about the state of the region’s connectivity, community funding opportunities and available resources (programmatic and infrastructure), current and future legislation considerations and other important issues.

Family Fun at the ‘Carved in Ice’ Event


I enjoyed all the activities at the 7th Annual “Carved in Ice” event presented by the Butler AM Rotary.

The two-day event was free to the public. The theme on Friday evening was “Lights on Ice.” Carvers created amazing art out of ice and people could watch it happen.

Saturday was “Family Fun Day.” There were live ice carvings, chili cook off, hot dog eating contest, music and entertainment.

As always, the Butler AM Rotary club hosted an amazing event.

Statewide Hearing Held in 12th District


It was an honor to host a House Republican Policy Committee hearing in Cranberry Township on Feb. 2 about workforce development and how we can alleviate the ongoing shortages our employers are experiencing.

In order for Pennsylvania to be competitive with surrounding states, we must be leaders of innovation. The success of small businesses is a critical component of our economy, and it starts with addressing the workforce shortages plaguing our employers.

Thank you to everyone who took time out of their busy days to get involved in this important discussion! My colleagues and I heard a lot of tremendous feedback that we can use in Harrisburg.
