Sappey appointed to Local Government Commission

KENNETT SQUARE, Feb. 14 – State Rep. Christina Sappey today announced she was appointed to the General Assembly’s Local Government Commission.

The commission, created in 1935, is a bicameral, bipartisan legislative service agency that provides the General Assembly with research and analysis on matters affecting local governments. 

“I’m honored to receive this appointment. I am ready to join my colleagues on the commission and eager to learn from them,” said Sappey, D-Chester. “Local governments play a huge role in our everyday lives, and I look forward to tackling some of our larger, more complex local government issues in a way that best serves local governments and the taxpayers.”

Sappey’s record of working with residents, local governments and state agencies to address traffic concerns, protect natural resources and preserve open space will allow her to contribute to the commission’s vision of bridging gaps between constituents and local governments throughout the commonwealth.

Sappey was recommended for the commission by House Democratic Leader Frank Dermody and appointed by House Speaker Mike Turzai. The commission is made up of five House members and five Senate members.

Sappey also was appointed to the House Local Government Committee, as well as the Agriculture and Rural Affairs, and Veterans Affairs and Emergency Preparedness committees.
