Rep. Mary Jo Daley's Biography

First elected to represent Montgomery County’s 148th Legislative District in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives in 2012. Her election to state office continues a deep commitment to community service, the environment and social justice. 

Daley is committed to focusing on the needs of her constituents through the assistance provided by a capable district office staff and a lot of community outreach. As a representative, she believes strongly that it is possible to practice the politics that are about getting things done and delivering services that people want and need. 

Keeping her promise to be a strong voice for her constituents, Daley is leading efforts in Harrisburg to stop further erosion of women's rights, fighting for non-discrimination in Pennsylvania, and advocating for investing in Pennsylvania public schools to ensure funding that is adequate, equitable and sustainable. 

Daley serves as the Majority Chair of the House Tourism & Economic & Recreational Development Committee and is a member of the House Rules Committee. In addition, Daley co-chairs the bicameral, bipartisan Women's Health Caucus and is one of five co-chairs of the Irish American Caucus.  

Daley’s public service began with 20 years as a member of Narberth Borough Council, including 10 years as council president starting in 2001. She often cites her years on Borough Council as invaluable experience for serving as a state representative and why she believes so strongly in supporting local governments, no matter how small the municipality.
