Rep. Lisa Borowski's Biography
Lisa A. Borowski was elected in November 2022 to represent the 168th Legislative District in Delaware County, which includes Edgmont, Newtown, Middletown and Radnor townships.
Lisa’s career in public service began in 2011 when her two sons were still students in Radnor Township School District. She ran for school board and won. She later served as vice president of the board and led the way on creating one of the area’s first full-day kindergarten programs. Public education is a passion of her’s and will always be a priority along with gun safety, health care access and affordability, and support for first responders.
Lisa later ran for township commissioner and was elected president of the board of commissioners. She led efforts to secure critical investments for the public library, increase police funding, pave township roads, improve stormwater management, and pass four balanced budgets.
Delaware County has been Lisa’s home her entire life. It’s where she grew up, settled down and raised her family. Lisa’s father cared for patients at Riddle Hospital in Media for almost 40 years, and her mother was a nurse, CCD teacher and hospital volunteer. Her maternal grandfather was a union plumber in Local 690 who, thanks to his good union job, was able to become the first in his family to purchase a home and settled in Broomall. Her paternal grandfather owned a butcher shop in Philadelphia’s Italian Market, which provided the resources to help her father become the first in his family to attend college.
As a state representative, Lisa will always stand up for the residents of Edgmont, Newtown, Middletown and Radnor townships. In Harrisburg, she will support common sense legislation to end gun violence and prioritize public safety. She will advocate for legislation to protect abortion access, workers’ rights, fight climate change and expand voting rights. She also looks forward to collaborating with local municipalities to bring home state funding in support of necessary infrastructure projects across the 168th District.
