HARRISBURG, Jan. 24 – State Rep. Jared Solomon, D-Phila., today announced that he has been appointed to serve on several key House standing committees for the 2017-2018 legislative session.
House Democratic Leader Frank Dermody appointed the freshman legislator to the chamber’s Aging and Older Adult Services, Children and Youth, Education, State Government, and Tourism and Recreational Development committees for the 2017-18 legislative session.
“As a new legislator, I am thrilled to represent the interests of my district on these important committees. From helping our children get the best start in life, to making sure our elderly are well taken care of later in life, and much in between, these committees are great platforms to help the people of Lower Northeast Philadelphia and the commonwealth as a whole,” Solomon said.
“Education is a top priority of mine here in Harrisburg,” Solomon said. “I’m passionate about helping young people who are not on a college track to be afforded meaningful opportunities to develop their skills, career and employability. Hopefully my work on this integral committee will allow me to advance my ideas and work with colleagues on theirs.”
Solomon said residents can stay up-to-date with his work in the legislature by signing up for his periodic e-mail updates through his website, www.PaHouse.com/Solomon.
Solomon represents the 202nd Legislative District, which consists of a portion of Northeast Philadelphia.
