Waters set to begin seventh term in state House
HARRISBURG, Jan. 1 – State Rep. Ronald G. Waters was sworn in Tuesday during a ceremony at the state Capitol to begin his seventh term representing the 191st Legislative District, which is made up of parts of Philadelphia and Delaware counties.
“I am extremely grateful for another opportunity to serve my constituents and represent them in Harrisburg for the seventh time,” Waters said. “The newness of the office never leaves because we have to earn the people’s approval and their vote every two years.”
Waters recently was voted secretary of the Democratic Caucus, and he stressed the excitement he has to begin operating in this capacity.
“My plan is to resuscitate the office of the secretary so that it is better utilized,” Waters said. “I truly want to be an asset to the caucus and to perform the duties of the secretary with excellence.
“Even though I am stepping into a new role, my passions have not changed, and I will use this new position to be even more fervent in my pursuits of addressing key issues in the commonwealth,” he continued.
Waters has long been an advocate of public safety and has worked diligently during his time in the House to address a variety of public safety issues. In the wake of the tragedy in Newtown, Waters plans to reintroduce his assault weapons ban legislation during the 197th legislative session.
“Now that the dust has settled a bit, I believe it is time that we as a commonwealth come together to have a serious discourse about gun violence and sensible gun laws,” Waters said. “I believe that this will be a key issue in the upcoming session.”
Waters’ constituent service office is located at 6027A Ludlow St., Philadelphia, PA 19139. The telephone number is 215-748-6712.
