Representative Solomon has few public stances on the issues, but his official biography identifies his legislative priorities as the following: “improving business corridors, revitalizing the infrastructure stock, addressing safety concerns in the neighborhood, providing opportunities for kids after school, and creating more jobs with higher wages to address local poverty issues.”

Education

  • Supports increasing state funding for schools

Infrastructure

  • Supports increasing state funding for infrastructure in general

Other

  • Solomon called on indicted City Councilperson Bobby Henon to resign, and is introducing legislation to allow PA voters to initiate a recall process for elected officials. the IBEW Local 98 union criticized Solomon in response, noting that he accepted $30,000 from them in 2015. (source)
