HARRISBURG, PA — State Rep. Chris Pielli, D-Chester, took the oath of office at the state Capitol yesterday to begin his first term representing the 156th District.

The noon swearing-in ceremony marked the beginning of the 2023 session of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, for which Pielli was elected in the fall.

Pielli plans on spending his first year in office fighting for Pennsylvanians to earn a living wage and to protect the environment, voting rights, a woman’s right to choose, small business owners, veterans’ right; and a citizen’s right to equal protection under the law.

“Being sworn in… as representative of the 156th District was the honor of a lifetime,” Pielli said. “My colleagues and I hope to hit the ground running and bring positive, lasting change to the lives of Pennsylvanians.”
