Joanna McClinton, D-Phila./Delaware, was elected the first woman to serve as speaker of the Pennsylvania State House of Representatives in the chamber’s near 250-year history. During remarks in the House chamber, McClinton acknowledged the history being made and her commitment to bipartisanship.

And that collective trust is what empowers us to act in the interest of our communities and to advance Pennsylvania for the common good.” McClinton , who was first elected in 2015, represents communities in west and southwest Philadelphia and Yeadon and Darby boroughs in Delaware County.
