You have likely heard that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court just redistricted our state to make sure that voters are treated fairly. All the court challenges to this new map have been resolved, so these new districts will take effect for this years elections. I will now be running for re-election this year in PA’s new 18th Congressional District. Im happy to say that much of the new 18th District is quite similar to the district I currently represent in that it still includes all of the city of Pittsburgh, and much of the eastern suburbs and Mon-Valley. But there are some changes with the addition of some large municipalities like Bethel Park, Upper St. Clair, and Plum as well as some other towns in the South Hills and southern Allegheny County.
The following is list of all the areas that make up the new 18th District:
Dist. 18 ALLEGHENY County.
Part of ALLEGHENY County consisting of the CITIES of
Clairton, Duquesne, McKeesport and Pittsburgh and the
TOWNSHIPS of Elizabeth, Forward, North Versailles,

I am excited about the opportunity to represent the residents in some new areas as well as continue to represent others that I currently represent! If you live in the new 18th District, I hope that you will get out to vote in the Primary election on May 15th, and then again in November. I would be honored to have your support!
