Lynda Culver sworn in as 27th District state senator

Lynda Schlegel Culver was sworn in as the state Senator for the 27th District in a brief ceremony on Tuesday afternoon.

Culver, 53, was elected to the position during a January special election to replace former Senator John Gordner, who stepped down to accept a position in the office of Senate President Pro Tempore Kim Ward (R-Westmoreland).

She will serve out the remainder of Gordner’s term which expires on Nov. 30, 2024.

Culver previously was elected to serve seven terms as the 108th District representative in the state House.

Her sitting gives the Republicans a 28-22 majority in the chamber, while her departure from the House leaves the GOP in a 100-102 minority.

The 27th District includes all of Columbia, Montour, Northumberland and Snyder counties, and part of Luzerne County, including Black Creek, Butler, Conyngham, Dorrance, Fairview, Hollenback, Huntington, Nescopeck, Rice, Salem, Slocum, Sugarloaf and Wright townships, and Conyngham, Nescopeck, New Columbus, Nuangola and Shickshinny boroughs.
