Win

Lawyer by day. Advocate for life. As a business owner and child advocate, Liz is a proven fighter for families and children. Shortly after law school, she left corporate law to start her own practice in Montgomery County serving families, small businesses and non-profits, and began devoting significant pro bono time fighting for families and children in our community. Liz spends a majority of her professional time to being a child advocate and court appointed guardian for children in the Montgomery County working with the Montgomery Child Advocacy Project (MCAP). She works with police, the Office of Children and Youth, parents, as well as judges and lawyers to help protect families and children.

Liz is running for State Representative because she believes that now, more than ever, the 61st district needs a new voice in Harrisburg. For too long, politicians in Harrisburg have ignored their constituents, and Liz has spent her career working with the families and children most harmed by Harrisburg’s apathy. She’s running because someone needs to be their voice in Harrisburg.

Why This Race Is Important

Pennsylvania is a critical swing state, but due to a long history of Republican gerrymandering, the Republicans hold large majorities of power in the state legislature. Prior to the 2018 midterms, Republicans had a supermajority in the state senate, with 34 seats to Democrats 16 seats. With Democratic gains in November, Republicans now have 28 seats to Democrats 21 seats, and there is one vacancy. Flipping this seat blue is critical for the Democrats in order to take back the chamber in 2020 prior to redistricting.
