WESTMORELAND – Joined by his family, Rep. Eric Davanzo (R-Westmoreland) was officially sworn into office today at the state Capitol to begin his first term in the General Assembly serving the people of the 58th Legislative District.
“Last week, we exceeded 1 million unemployment claims in the Commonwealth. Pennsylvania is facing hard times because of COVID-19, and that’s certainly true in the 58th District,” Davanzo said. “It’s a somber time to step into this role, but I want people to know that my office will be a resource for them. We’re here to help any way we can.”
Davanzo has not yet been assigned to the committees on which he’ll serve, but will announce that information when it is available.
“People in the district trusted me with their vote, and I take that very seriously. It’s time to get to work,” Davanzo added.
The 58th District covers part of Westmoreland County and consists of the cities of Jeannette and Monessen cities, the townships of East Huntingdon (part), Hempfield (part), Rostraver, Sewickley and South Huntingdon; and the boroughs of Adamsburg, Arona, Madison, Mount Pleasant, North Belle Vernon, Penn, Smithton, Sutersville and West Newton.
