  • - Citing her ability to deliver legislative results and her deep involvement in issues crucial to the future of the region, state Senator Lisa Baker announced she is running for re-election.
    It is a privilege serving the hard-working people of a great area that has always been home for me,” Baker said. “I strive every day to solve problems, protect local interests, and create opportunities for families and communities. I will present my record and my priorities for action and hope to earn the trust and support of the voters for another four years.”
    Senator Baker has voted to hold the line on state taxes, control state spending, limit state borrowing, and provide tax relief for farmers and small businesses to help them stay in operation.
    She has also been successful in securing state funding for a wide range of local projects and priorities, including sewer and water systems, parks and recreation facilities, libraries, and senior housing.
    As chair of the Senate Veterans Affairs and Emergency Preparedness Committee, Baker is noted for her determined efforts to connect veterans with the benefits they have earned and to enable communities to retain and attract volunteer responders on whom they depend.
    Those who serve in the military and those who are involved in emergency services sacrifice a lot in protecting us. Pennsylvania must fulfill its obligations to these devoted individuals,” she said.
    This will be the first election held in the redrawn 20th Senatorial District, which includes all of Pike, Wayne, and Wyoming counties along with substantial parts of Luzerne and Susquehanna counties.
