Webster begins first term as state representative

HARRISBURG, Jan. 1 – State Rep. Joe Webster, D-Montgomery, was sworn in today during ceremonies at the state Capitol to begin his first term in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.

“It is truly an honor to have the residents of the 150th District put their faith and trust in me to serve as their state representative,” Webster said. “My job is to be their voice in Harrisburg and I look forward to championing their interests and the issues I highlighted that brought me to this job.”

Prior to being elected to the state House, Webster was an Air Force colonel and served in the Pentagon as Legislative Liaison to the U.S. Congress, before returning to Pennsylvania in 2011 to a commercial career in information technologies.

Webster said he is eager to start the legislative session, where he will focus on a long list of issues including voting rights, quality education and affordable access to healthcare for residents in order to promote a healthy workforce and enhance economic growth.
