"I am proud to announce my endorsement of Helen Tai. I need partners like Helen to fight with me to change Harrisburg by protecting education and seniors, reducing gun violence, combating the opioid crisis, and continuing to grow our economy. Helen's experience as a business owner combined with her public service and time spent as the Chair of the Solebury Township Board of Supervisors make her an excellent fit to represent the people of the 178th."
Tom Wolf, PA Governor
"I am endorsing Helen Tai because I know that she will be a highly valued member of the PA House of Representatives. Her commitment to the issues is unmatched. She has perseverance, strength and intellect that is absolutely needed in this political climate. She will uphold the values that you’ve seen throughout her time as Solebury Township Supervisor. Last year, when there was discussion about creating a new field near a township park, she worked to understand the concerns and found a way to meet everyone’s needs. The field is being built, meeting the needs of the families in the community, but not at the total expense of the township, addressing questions about cost. A win-win for everyone. This is the type of inclusive work that needs to happen at the state level, and Helen will do that - for everyone."
- Deirdre Alderfer, School Director, New Hope-Solebury
"Helen represents the best of public service-a humble concern for the community she represents. She builds bridges in difficult situations, not through words, but actions. An elected official who tries to create a community where all voices are heard." - Father Michael Ruk, St. Philips Episcopal Church
