HARRISBURG, Jan. 5 – State Rep. Eddie Day Pashinski, D-Luzerne, today was sworn in to represent the 121st Legislative District for his eighth term in the state House.

“It’s a tremendous honor and a privilege to be able to continue to represent the 121st legislative district as our community, commonwealth and country fight to defeat the COVID-19 pandemic and rebuild our economy,” Pashinski said. “I will continue working as hard as I can to defeat this virus and to move towards a more enjoyable normal, with hope and a positive future for all. Our federal and state governments must do everything we can to provide financial assistance to all who qualify due to hardships caused by the virus until enough vaccines are produced and administered to allow a safe return to business and life as usual. I pushed for this help in 2020 and I resolve to continue fighting for a better and safer future for ALL in 2021 and beyond.”

Pashinski has served as the Democratic chairman of the House Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee since 2017. Pashinski also previously served on the Insurance, State Government, Human Services, Aging, Gaming and Commerce committees.

“I look forward to keeping up the fight for the things our neighbors need, like property tax relief, jobs that pay a living wage, appropriate funding for public education, access to affordable quality healthcare and more,” Pashinski said.
