Isaacson sworn in for first term as state representative

HARRISBURG, Jan. 1 – State Rep. Mary Isaacson took the oath of office during a swearing-in ceremony today at the Capitol, officially kicking off her first term as state representative for the 175th Legislative District. 

“I’m honored to have the opportunity to represent the 175th legislative district and work to improve the Commonwealth for all who reside here,” Isaacson said. “During this term, my efforts will be focused on preventing childhood lead poisoning, implementing the fair funding formula for education, protecting the environment with a focus on the Delaware River, introducing common sense gun legislation, and continuing to advocate for issues facing women and the LGBTQ community.” 

Isaacson, a mother of two, said that her family inspires much of her public service initiatives. As a working mother with over 12 years of experience in the House of Representatives, Isaacson said she is uniquely positioned to understand the issues facing her district.

Many of her priorities mirror the Plan for PA, which puts people first – above politics and special interests – to ensure good jobs, affordable health care, quality schools, and a fair economy for Pennsylvania’s working families.

The Pennsylvania House of Representatives’ swearing-in corresponds with the first Tuesday in January, every two years. This year is Pennsylvania’s 203rd legislative session.
