State Senator-elect Guy Reschenthaler will formally be sworn into office later this month to represent the 37th Senatorial District, which includes portions of Allegheny County and a part of northern Washington County.
Reschenthaler won a special election to represent the district on November 3, 2015.
The son of former teachers, he was raised in the South Hills of Pittsburgh, graduated from Penn State, The Behrend College, in three years, and completed law school at Duquesne University.
Following law school, Reschenthaler served in the U.S. Navy Judge Advocate General Corp, volunteering in Iraq. Prior to running for the Senate, he worked in private practice at a multi-state law firm in Mt. Lebanon and was elected Magisterial District Judge for Pleasant Hills, Jefferson Hills and South Park, winning the nomination of both parties.
Reschenthaler says his top priorities in the state Senate include reforming the pension system to save tax dollars, controlling government spending and improving education opportunities for Pennsylvania students.
“Our pension crisis is resulting in higher taxes, which hurts property owners – particularly senior citizens – and is forcing schools to divert resources that could better be used in the classroom,” he said. “We need to bring fiscal restraint to state government and work together to solve the problems our state is facing, rather than increasing spending year after year.”
