Sue Mulvey seeks State Senate seat

Sue Mulvey announced Monday that she is seeking the Democratic nomination for the 50th Senate seat that includes all of Crawford and Mercer Counties and portions of Erie and Warren.

Born and raised in Crawford County, Mulvey’s family history can be traced back to the founding of Frenchtown. She and Tom, her husband of 22 years, raised their four children in Sharon, Pennsylvania. Mulvey stresses that hard work and education have always been a priority. She worked and raised a family through nursing school at Sharon Regional Hospital, a bachelor’s degree at Slippery Rock University, and a master’s degree at the American College of Education. A school nurse in Meadville, Sue continues to live in Sharon.

Mulvey stressed that she has worked for the people in the 50th district for over twenty five years. While in nursing school, she started a coat drive to comfort the children on the Shenango Valley. She continued this work as a nurse for UPMC with her “Warmth for Winter” campaign.

Mulvey stated that the people of the 50th district need a voice in Harrisburg that has lived the struggles they face every day. She pledges to fight for better jobs, public education, and affordable access to quality, local healthcare

The 50th district includes Columbus, Eldred, Southwest, and Spring Creek townships in Warren County.
