Pennsylvania State House District 58
Mary Popovich is seeking the 58th district seat in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. She is currently serving her third term as Mayor of the Borough of West Newton, the first woman to hold this office. Prior to her election as Mayor, she served as a member of borough council for three years.
As State Representative, Mary will encourage civic participation. She believes in open records, so constituents can better understand how the actions of their elected officials are affecting their daily lives. She encourages accountability of officials that work for you, so the people of our district do not have to endure hardships when the state budget is not passed by the deadline.
Mary is dedicated to fighting for proper funding appropriations to maintain sustainability for increasingly fractured communities, crumbling infrastructure, and underfunded schools. She looks forward to continuing her life-long dedication to education, and elevating the working class and under-privileged families of Southwestern Pennsylvania. Her legislative goals include job creation, eliminating blight through programs that support local government to accomplish this task, addressing drug addiction problems affecting families and communities through education and task force programs, and providing support for programs to enhance Fire, Police, and Emergency Management Agencies to keep communities safe.
