Rep. Jared G. Solomon's Biography

 

Jared Solomon, a community leader, attorney and Army Reserve JAG officer was elected to serve his first term in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives in November 2016.

Solomon's priorities in his district include improving business corridors, revitalizing the infrastructure stock, addressing safety concerns in the neighborhood, providing opportunities for kids after school, and creating more jobs with higher wages to address local poverty issues. In the legislature, Solomon hopes to broaden opportunities for kids looking to work after high school, streamline the process for new businesses wanting to settle in Pennsylvania, and providing businesses with incentives to come and stay in the state.

Prior to his work in the legislature, Solomon founded the "Take Back Your Neighborhood" community organization and served as the association's president. The work of the community revitalization organization includes starting youth sports programs, cleaning up parks and streets, building playgrounds for our youth, and collaborating with local law enforcement to promote safety and trust.

Solomon is a graduate of Swarthmore College and Villanova Law School. He was raised in the Castor Gardens neighborhood by his mother. He credits his success to remaining loyal to the neighborhood in which he was brought up and believing the power of ordinary people can make a difference.
