Recently, Bret was instrumental in developing an argument against the preliminary redistricting plan which
butchered the 156th district by carving out half of West Chester Borough from the district thus significantly
reducing the chances of a Democrat recapturing the seat. He, along with Mayor Carolyn Comitta and Rich Miller,
a graduate student at West Chester University, testified against the plan before the Reapportionment
Commission in Harrisburg.
As a legislator, Bret will use his experience in the law to protect the vital interests of the community,
clarify and streamline existing legislation, and work on legislation to promote the economy, job creation,
education and the environment.
