Matt Smith Sworn-in as New State Senator
Smith represents all of Whitehall Borough.
Matthew H. Smith's 2013 celebration got off to a good start on Tuesday afternoon when he was sworn-in as a new state senator.
Smith, previously a three-term state representative, was at the state Capitol in Harrisburg with friends and family on Tuesday for the ceremony.
The Democrat takes over Pennsylvania's 37th Senate District seat, which was vacated by John Pippy, who resigned on July 1. Smith defeated Republican D. Raja in November's general election.
"It has been an amazing and humbling journey to arrive at this moment," Smith said in a statement. "I am thankful to reach this milestone and look forward to returning home and getting back to work to serve the constituents of the 37th Senatorial District."
District residents can contact the Mt. Lebanon office at 412-571-2169 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays and the Peters office from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Smith also plans to open an office in Moon for constituents.
