Joe McAndrew sworn in as PA representative of the 32nd District

HARRISBURG, Feb. 21 – Joe McAndrew, D-Allegheny, took the oath of office as PA’s 32nd Legislative District representative today at the state Capitol in Harrisburg.

“I am excited to be sworn in today to represent my neighbors in the 32nd Legislative District,” McAndrew said. “Our communities and commonwealth face a lot of challenges, but I am confident that I can work with my fellow legislators to enact policies that not only support our communities but also create the environment we need to build a better Pennsylvania for everyone.”

McAndrew previously served as the Allegheny County Democratic Committee’s executive director and worked with Congressman Chris Deluzio. He also brings with him the experience of working in Harrisburg, as he served on former Democratic House Minority Leader Frank Dermody’s team from 2012-14.

Key issues McAndrew plans to focus on include public safety, public transportation, raising the minimum wage, supporting strong unions, providing resources for seniors, investing in renewable energy, ending gun violence, protecting women’s reproductive rights and LGBTQ+ rights, and fighting for equitable school funding.
