New Year’s Day session marks beginning of 203rd Pennsylvania General Assembly
HARRISBURG – Rep. Mike Puskaric (R-Allegheny/Washington) today was officially sworn in to office at the state Capitol to begin his first term serving the people of the 39th Legislative District.
“Although today’s ceremony capped many months of hard work on the part of my family and dedicated friends and supporters, it also marks the beginning of the real work ahead – that of serving as the voice of my constituents,” said Puskaric. “I will work in earnest to support legislation and policies that solve problems, not create more of them.”
Puskaric said he realizes that taxpayers are overburdened – that is why he will take up the cause of holding the line on taxes and spending. Puskaric also listed job creation, infrastructure improvements and school safety as challenges that must be faced.
“Jobs are an important issue in our area,” said Puskaric. “The Commonwealth needs to stop driving employers away through high tax rates and overly burdensome regulations. Pennsylvania must be open for business.”
As a strong business person with a commonsense approach, Puskaric also described himself as a strong supporter for state’s rights, Second Amendment rights and school choice. He will also strive to reform Harrisburg by ending perks, restructuring the pension system and ending the influence of special interests.
A life-long resident of western Pennsylvania, Puskaric graduated Serra Catholic High School and earned a communications degree from Seton Hill University.
Puskaric’s district office is always available to address residents’ questions and concerns about state government. It is located at 1633 State Route 51, Suite G-102, in Jefferson Hills, and can be reached by calling 412-382-2009.
The 39th Legislative District includes parts of Bethel Park in addition to Elizabeth, Elizabeth Township, Forward Township, Jefferson Hills, West Elizabeth, and parts of South Park Township in Allegheny County. It also includes Finleyville, Nottingham Township, Somerset Township and Union Township in Washington County.
