Krueger elected to House Democratic Caucus administrator position

HARRISBURG, March 1 – State Rep. Leanne Krueger was elected to House Democratic majority leadership as administrator, becoming the first Democratic woman ever to earn the office, following Rep. Joanna McClinton’s election as speaker Tuesday.

Krueger said that becoming a part of leadership will give her a greater platform to advocate for the people in her district, Delaware County and all of Pennsylvania.

“Pennsylvanians voted for a new direction in Harrisburg, and I’m proud to be a part of that change,” said Krueger, D-Delaware. “Together with Speaker McClinton and our leadership team, I look forward to helping move the legislation and policy that are being called for by Pennsylvanians. It’s a new day in the Capitol.”

Among her policy goals remain protecting access to women’s health care, passing a responsible contractor ordinance, raising the minimum wage, and supporting public education in Pennsylvania.

“We have a lot of work to do, but I am energized by the promise of new vision in the Capitol and the leadership of newly elected Governor Josh Shapiro to see our commonwealth’s challenges through,” she said.

The rest of the House Democratic leadership changes included state Rep. Matt Bradford, D-Montgomery, becoming majority leader, state Rep. Jordan Harris, D-Phila., becoming the House Appropriations chair, state Rep. Dan Miller, D-Allegheny, becoming whip, and state Rep. Mike Schlossberg, D-Lehigh, becoming Caucus chair.
