Our Local Candidates Need Your Vote

 Christina Sappey    PA HOUSE, DISTRICT 158

Chris has lived in Chester County for 25 years and she and her husband have raised three kids here. She has worked for PA representatives Barb McIlvaine Smith and Carolyn Comitta and Senator Andy Dinniman for a total of 12 years. She now plans to serve in a different role: to represent her home, her neighbors and her community in Harrisburg. She wants to ensure that our economy and business environment are a foundation for growth; she wants our State to live within its means and be able to lend a hand to our neighbors in need. Chris finds herself in the majority of reasonableness and moderation, in the middle, to the left of the hard right and the right of the extreme left. Chris trusts women to make their own decisions about things that should be personal. She believes we should listen to one another, respect alternative positions, and discuss solutions to hard problems in a civil manner. Chris lives in West Bradford. Endorsed by PA AFL-CIO, Emily’s Liost, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, Planned Parenthood, PSEA, Senator Andy Dinniman, UFCW, and others.


Chrissy earned her engineering degree from Stanford with a ROTC scholarship and received her M.S. in Technology and Policy from MIT. She served three years active duty as a Captain in the US Air Force, and 13 years in the Reserves. She was founding COO of B-Lab (a nonprofit that promotes B Corporations and good business practices) and President and COO/CFO for Springboard Collaborative (a Philadelphia-based nonprofit focused on improving early childhood literacy in underserved communities country-wide). Endorsed by PA AFL-CIO and Sierra Club.

Thanks to all who braved the weather and attended our summer picnic at Shadyside Park!

Those who attended the June 23 Bradford Democrats annual summer picnic were treated to some rainy weather but wonderful food, music (thanks  to John Fuhr and Joanne Hill and friends), meeting and making new friends, and lots of political discussion. Thanks to new committee person Theresa Soja for a great job of organizing, Bob Buckalew and John Malone for grilling, Sue Phifer and Janice Shreffler for the grab bags, Linda Buckalew for setup, and everyone for bringing their favorite summer dish to share!

After Bradford Dems Chair Kevin Houghton acknowledged all the volunteers who made the event a success, West Bradford resident and Candidate for PA House in the 158th, Christina Sappey, shared her vision for the district, including for jobs and the economy, healthcare, education, and the environment. Go Chris!
