Bill-AdolphOne of the most influential members of the State House has announced he’ll be retiring at the end of this term.

State Rep. William Adolph, who has represented the 165th district since 1988, revealed that his fourteenth term will be his last.

“Whether it’s working on property-tax relief, simplifying Pennsylvania’s tax rules and regulations, or making college more affordable for students and their families, Bill Adolph’s accomplishments have improved the lives of countless members of his community,” Pennsylvania Republican Chairman Rob Gleason.

Adolph has served as Chair of the House Appropriations Committee since 2010. It is not yet clear who will step up and try to replace him.

The 165th district represents parts of Delaware County.

  1. I hoping for the Incumbent’s politicial party does holds on to the seat in 2016.

  2. To me, it just signifies the continued decline of civility and moderation in politics. The GOP has reaped what it sowed with gerrymandering though. Oh well!

  3. I don’t know Adolph, but it annoys me when people criticize the pension plan for lawmakers and public-sector workers. They deserve a financially secure retirement just like every American. A defined-pension plan is something we should all be demanding at our respective workplace.

  4. This jerk waited just long enough to help scuttle the budget one more year. Bomb-throwing lackey.

  5. C-Ya Mr. Adolph! Enjoy Your Fat Pension Courtesy Of The Taxpayers! What A Country! What A State! Pennsylvania F*#@ Yeah!

  7. I don’t know, Delco, but you all should be trained to lose that awful accent before being allowed to leave the county.

  8. Who will be the GOP nominee for this seat? Delco GOP let’s nobody resign unless there is a successor in waiting. That is the most important question.
