(Jan 03, 2023)

HARRISBURG, Jan. 3 – State Rep. Mandy Steele took the oath of office today in the state Capitol to begin representing the 33 rd Legislative District. The noon swearing-in ceremony marked the beginning of the 2023-24 legislative session of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. Steele said she wants to prioritize protecting women’s rights and working to promote a green economy across the commonwealth and locally, which would not only increase the commonwealth’s energy independence and address climate change, but also create jobs and save taxpayers money. “It is an honor to be selected by my community to work here in Harrisburg for them,” Steele said. “I come from a background of bringing people together from all walks of life and ideologies to better the community and I am ready to continue to do that. I think those skills – and the ability to work across the aisle, will be critical in the year ahead.” Steele said her office can help with a variety of state-related services, including home heating assistance, children’s health insurance, prescription drug and property tax/rent rebate assistance.
