Boyd takes oath of office to represent Delaware County’s 163rd Legislative District

HARRISBURG, June 5 – State Rep. Heather Boyd, D-Delaware, took the oath of office in Harrisburg today, commencing her first term representing the 163rd Legislative District.

Boyd has years of experience with public policy and constituent service. Prior to taking office, she served as chief of staff for the 161st District’s office, U.S. Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon’s district director and senior advisor, and as an elected member of Upper Darby school board.

“I look forward to working with all my colleagues on important matters that affect the lives of all Pennsylvanians. A lot of important conversations need to happen within our state legislature, especially as we begin drafting this year’s budget, and it’s my honor to serve as a strong voice for the people of Delaware County,” Boyd said.

Boyd will receive her committee assignments in the coming weeks.

After last year’s reapportionment process, the 163rd District consists of Darby and Upper Darby, Aldan, Clifton Heights and Collingdale.
