Republican Candace Cabanas is a first-time political candidate, running to fill a Democrat-leaning Bucks County house.  She’ll be facing off against Pennsbury School Board member Jim Prokopiak (D).

The special election to fill the vacancy left when state Rep. John Galloway (D-Bucks) left to fill a  district judgeship will be held on February 13.

In the podcast, Cabanas talks to DVJournal News Editor Linda Stein about her focus on healthcare and the budget, as well as her take on the abortion issue.

“I’m running because I understand firsthand the challenges faced by working families,” said Cabanas. “I know how difficult it is to raise a family and make ends meet in this economy, and I know how important it is to fight for the working-class citizens of Lower Bucks County. That’s exactly what I’ll do as your next State Representative.”
