Williams sworn in, set to begin service as state representative
"Pastor Dan" out of Chester County represents the 74th Legislative District
HARRISBURG, Jan. 1 – Longtime Chester County resident and first-time state Rep. Dan Williams was officially sworn in today to begin representing the 74th Legislative District.
“Pastor Dan” has been a senior pastor at New Life in Christ Fellowship Church in Coatesville for nearly three decades and said he’s prepared to use his community-based background and experience to push for positive change in Pennsylvania.
Among his most pressing issues, Williams said, are investing in community, improving schools and protecting neighborhoods. His individual goals blend into the broader Plan for PA, which seeks to return power to working families.
“Investing in high-quality jobs, maintaining our public infrastructure and stimulating responsible economic growth promote our American ideals and restore depleted revenues to our local communities,” said Williams, a Geneva College graduate.
Williams said he also plans to promote public education by supporting students with quality teachers and fairly funded classrooms. In addition, he sets to improve background checks and champion responsible gun safety measures, as well as combat the opioid crisis by focusing on treatment instead of incarceration.

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