PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 28 – State Rep. Ben Waxman, D-Phila., issued a statement celebrating the election of state Rep. Joanna McClinton, D-Phila./Delaware, as speaker of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives:
“It was my pleasure and honor to cast my vote for state Representative Joanna McClinton to take on the position of speaker of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives,” Waxman said. “Speaker McClinton has been at the forefront of change and leadership since she has entered the political sphere. Today, she continues to make history as the first woman speaker of the House. I know that she will keep the people and their interests at the forefront of her thoughts. I know that she will lead us as a person first who seeks justice and policies that help everyday individuals. This is a victory for families across the state.
McClinton is the first woman elected to the position of speaker of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, and the second African American. She made history as the first woman and African American to be elected as PA House Democratic Caucus chair in 2018, and again in 2020 when she was elected as the first woman House Democratic leader.
