Spotlight: Majority Leader Dave Reed

Rep. Reed FF site

Dave Reed was chosen by the Pennsylvania Future Fund because he has done an impeccable job as House Majority Leader. Throughout the rough budget negotiation process this year, Majority Leader Reed had stood up for hard working Pennsylvanians and stayed true to what he and the Republicans set out to do, which was passing a budget and putting it on the Governor’s desk on time.

Representative Reed is currently in his seventh tern in the PA General Assembly, representing the 62nd Legislative District. He was elected Majority Leader of the 199th legislative session of the General Assembly in November 2014. Dave graduated from Homer-Center High School and went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and economics from the Robert E. Cook Honors College at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. He interned for Governor Tom Ridge’s Policy Office for Community and Economic Development and went to the University of Pennsylvania for his Master of Governmental Administration Degree, which is focused on effective and efficient government.

While in the House of Representatives, Dave has had what feels are two main responsibilities: pushing for good policies in Harrisburg while providing quality, reliable constituent services to residents in the district. As Majority Policy Committee chairman, Dave conducted hearings about important issues and as Policy Chair he focused on improving quality of life for all Pennsylvanians and improving the climate for job creation.

Reed was elected as Majority Leader during leadership elections for the 2015-16 Session. He is committed to passing responsible, on-time budgets, while focusing on policies that help grow in-state jobs. Dave’s goal is to improve the Commonwealth for current residents and future generations.
