Sankey Among 29 Freshman PA House Members Sworn Into Office
HARRISBURG – State Rep. Tommy Sankey (R-Clearfield) was sworn into office Tuesday at the state Capitol to officially begin his first term in service to the constituents of the 74th Legislative District. Sankey is one of 10 Republicans in a 29-member class of first-term representatives in the 197th session of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.
“While today is a very big day personally for my family and me, the priority remains serving as a voice for the people of my district and representing their interests in Harrisburg,” Sankey said. “It is worth noting that my office has hit the ground running, in that we already have, since December 1, been busy keeping in touch with and helping a significant number of constituents with their legislative questions and concerns.”
Sankey will soon be opening his primary district office, which will be located at 315 East Market St., Suite 100, Clearfield.
“I will also be opening a satellite office at 600 Lingle Street, Osceola Mills, with hours and days of operation yet to be determined,” added Sankey. “We have a lot of territory to cover with only two offices and more than 59,000 constituents, but there are a number of different ways to get in touch with me and it is my job to employ every avenue possible in order to be accessible as I can be.”
Sankey’s toll-free telephone number is 1-866-901-2482. His constituents may also contact him via email at Tsankey@pahousegop.com, through his website at www.RepSankey.com, or by visiting his Facebook page at www.facebook.com/RepSankey.
