Shapiro: A Year in Review
Josh Shapiro, the 44-year-old who now holds the title of 50th Attorney General of Pennsylvania, has just celebrated his first anniversary as the incumbent. Here’s a review of his time so far in office (through his eyes).
Working alongside Fillman, the Office of The Attorney General of Pennsylvania signed a new Code of Conduct and mandated ethics training for all of their staff members.
"I think if you have integrity in your office, and you infuse, you know, justice in everything that you do, then people will have confidence in the work that you're doing and think that what you're doing is fair."
"What I am searching for is not a pathway to 'safe' injection, but a pathway to treatment for individuals who want it. That's my first point. The second point is, this presents serious public safety concerns."
"I would rather we spend our time focusing on shutting down the major drug pipelines in our communities and creating more avenues for treatment."
"It's my job to defend the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, whether they are undermined by a drug dealer or some corporation, or even undermined by an act of the federal government. My job is to defend the State's law, so I will continue to defend our medical marijuana policies."
“You’re not going to make me choose, right?!” We sat down with Attorney General Josh Shapiro on Wednesday afternoon, and he gave us his hot take on the Pittsburgh vs. Philadelphia debate for Amazon’s second HQ. #amazon #philadelphia #pittsburgh #joshshapiro

While Shapiro answered this question like a sagacious and seasoned politician, I will interject with my own subjectivity and bias that, well... #PhillyDelivers!
