Mullery begins fifth term at state Capitol

HARRISBURG, Jan. 1 – State Rep. Gerald Mullery today was sworn in for a fifth term during a ceremony at the state Capitol that marks the beginning of the 2019-20 session of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.

“It is an honor to again represent the interests and concerns of my neighbors and everyone living in the 119th Legislative District,” said Mullery, D-Newport Township. “My constituents have put their trust in me and I look forward to helping to make their daily lives better; whether that be through improved job opportunities, making sure the education that we are providing young people helps graduates find those jobs and continuing to ensure our communities are safe places to live.”

Mullery said property tax elimination continues to be a priority and he hopes the new House Republican leadership team will bring a bill to accomplish that goal to a vote this session.

Continuing a practice he began during the 2017-18 session, Mullery will visit communities throughout the district as part of his “One.19” initiative.

“I enjoy meeting people and hearing their concerns firsthand, and we are able to have in-depth discussions with business owners, education officials and community leaders during these daylong visits,” he said.

Mullery maintains a constituent service office at 156 S. Market St. in Nanticoke, and 407 Centre St. in Freeland. The hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday. The phone numbers are 570-740-7031 and 570-636-3500, respectively.
