District 24: Senate of Pennsylvania
Encompassing portions of Bucks, Lehigh, Montgomery, and Northampton Counties, the recently redrawn State Senate District 24 spans some 65 miles and includes one quarter million citizens living in urban, suburban, and rural communities.
The issues facing the new legislative territory are as complex as a patchwork quilt. Although the region is pieced together from diverse neighborhoods of varying textures, colors, and patterns, it is also connected by strong, common threads.
