Schlossberg takes oath of office for second term at start of 2015-16 session

ALLENTOWN, Jan. 6 – Focusing on constituent service and a fresh start for Pennsylvania schools and families, state Rep. Mike Schlossberg, D-Leigh, today began his second term representing the 132nd Legislative District after taking the oath of office.

 

"Between the $2 billion budget deficit and bad decisions by the outgoing administration that have harmed our seniors, kids, public schools and workers, Harrisburg needs a fresh start," Schlossberg said. "There is a lot to be done to put Pennsylvania on a more productive path, but I am ready to get to work." 

 

Schlossberg said he will work with the incoming governor and his colleagues across the aisle to ensure the state is honoring its commitment to community schools, fostering a strong economy and creating opportunities for all Pennsylvania families. Schlossberg said he also intends to continue fighting for women’s health and equality for all Pennsylvanians. 

 

Schlossberg said he is also committed to improving Pennsylvania’s economy by continuing the work he started by voting to support investments in the commonwealth’s roads and bridges while continuing to bolster health care and manufacturing industries which are the two largest employment sectors in the 132nd District. 

 

Due to constitutionally mandated reapportionment, Schlossberg will represent the newly configured 132nd District, which now includes parts of South Whitehall and Allentown's East Side. Allentown’s Center City is now in the 22nd District.

 

“I look forward to working with leaders in Allentown and South Whitehall Township to serve our communities,” Schlossberg said.

 

Schlossberg's constituent service office, which is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., is located at 2030 W. Tilghman St. in Allentown and can be reached at (610) 821-5577.
