Stender, Boyd Sworn In As House Members

Michael Stender, Heather Boyd swearing in ceremony

Their elections certified, the Pennsylvania State House of Representatives today welcomed its two newest members to the chamber.

Heather Boyd (D-Delaware) and Michael Stender (R-Montour/Northumberland) were sworn in officially to bring the House’s membership back to 203 – 102 Democrats and 101 Republicans.

Both Boyd and Stender were elected to serve in the 163rd and 108th State House Districts, respectively, during special elections last month.

“Swearing in new members is always a special occasion in the state House of Representatives,” said Speaker Joanna McClinton (D-Philadelphia/Delaware). “As longtime public servants, Representatives Boyd and Stender both bring valuable experience to their new roles and will contribute greatly to the policy debates in Harrisburg.

“I’m confident that the more than 120,000 Pennsylvanians they collectively represent will benefit from having such dedicated elected officials as their voice in Harrisburg.”

McClinton added that the new members are joining the state House at a busy time, having advanced 44 bills – all with bipartisan support – in just three weeks in late April and May. Additionally, the legislature is currently debating the state budget which is due by June 30.

“The state House has been advancing legislation to strengthen our communities and help Pennsylvanians of all ages at an ambitious pace,” McClinton said. “I’m proud of the work the House has been able to achieve so far this legislative session and am hopeful about what we’ll continue to accomplish.”
