Rep. Tina Davis sworn in for 5th term as state representative
HARRISBURG, Jan. 1 – State Rep. Tina Davis was sworn in today for her fifth term representing the 141st Legislative District.
“I am deeply honored to serve the people of the 141st District,” Davis said. “I thank them for their confidence in my ability to best serve their interests in Harrisburg. In the coming term, I will be working with my colleagues and across the aisle to achieve the House Democrats’ #Plan4PA. The plan is focused on building a Pennsylvania that works for working families through good jobs, affordable health care, quality schools and a fair economy, all of which will make Bucks County an even better place to live and work.”
Davis is one of 91 House Democrats starting the 2019-20 legislative session. The remaining two seats will be decided by special election this spring. She is joined by 24 first-term House Democrats. In this term, there are more female representatives (51) in the House than ever before in the history of Pennsylvania.
“I am glad to be joined by so many women of exceptional talent in the legislature this term,” Davis said. “Together, we will fight for a Pennsylvania where everyone can thrive.”
The Pennsylvania House of Representatives swearing-in ceremony is mandated by the state constitution to convene at noon on the first Tuesday in January. This is the 203rd legislative session.
