State Rep. Pam Snyder, D-50th District, was sworn in Tuesday to her first term as representative for the 50th Legislative District.
“I’m excited about rolling up my sleeves and working on the issues and problems confronting Southwestern Pennsylvania,” said Snyder, who served nine years as Greene County commissioner before her November election to the state House.
“I will be a strong advocate for the district and work directly with all communities and constituents,” said Snyder who was surrounded by a bevy of friends and family.
The day’s festivities at the state Capitol kicked off the 197th legislative session. The session convened at noon as required by the state constitution, and 91 Democratic and 111 Republican members were sworn in. One seat will be decided by special election.
Snyder, named the County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania’s 2012 Outstanding County Commissioner of the Year, joins 18 other new Democratic members, the largest contingent since 2007.
