Kosierowski sworn in for first full term in state House

HARRISBURG, Jan. 5– state Rep. Bridget M. Kosierowski, D-Lackawanna, took the oath of office today to begin her first full term as a member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. 

She won a special election in March 2019 to replace Rep. Sid Kavulich, who died unexpectedly in 2018 following complications from surgery. 

“I’m looking forward to continuing to work on issues that matter to the communities I represent and those who’ve put their trust in me to be their voice in Harrisburg,” said Kosierowski. “Now more than ever as a legislative body, it’s extremely important that we continue finding ways to put aside our differences and work together so that we’re able to come together and find solutions to the issues that have impacted our neighbors and help move the commonwealth forward.” 

Throughout the last session, she sponsored numerous bipartisan legislative efforts to ensure people working on the front lines during the COVID-19 pandemic would be protected. Kosierowski's legislative priorities have also included preserving and enhancing healthcare services for all.  

She also plans to continue working with colleagues to address the burden of school property taxes and nurse compact laws, as well protecting frontline workers and children’s safety in schools.
