Rowe will run for re-election to the House

85th District includes portions of Snyder and Union counties

LEWISBURG — State Rep. David Rowe, R-Lewisburg, has announced he will seek re-election to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives as representative from the 85th Legislative District, which includes portions of Snyder and Union counties.

“I am honored and privileged to represent the people of Snyder and Union counties,” Rowe said in a press release. “I am running for re-election to continue fighting for our central Pennsylvania values. In Harrisburg, I will continue advocating for policies that foster greater economic growth, create more family-sustaining jobs, lower our taxes, encourage a robust farming community, strengthen families, and reduce burdensome regulation on small businesses.”

In August, Rowe, a Republican, won a special election to fill the seat previously held by Fred Keller, who is now serving in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Rowe considers himself both a solid social and fiscal conservative, stating he is “100% Pro-Life,” an NRA member fully committed to defending Second Amendment rights; and that he believes in smaller government and low taxes. Rowe said he is committed to protecting traditional family values and religious liberty.

Rowe lives in East Buffalo Township, Union County. For the past nine years, he has been the owner and operator of LBG Fitness Inc. (CrossFit Lewisburg). He attended National Sun Yat-sen University in Taiwan after two years of Christian missionary work as an educator in Southeast Asia. Rowe is a former staff member of the Pennsylvania Family Council and attends New Hope Lutheran Brethren Church.

Prior to his election to the state House, Rowe served as vice chairman of the East Buffalo Township Board of Supervisors; secretary of the Union County Republican Committee; a member of the Capital Campaign Council of Evangelical Community Hospital; a Director of the Central Susquehanna Fire and Emergency Services board; and a Commissioner of the Buffalo Valley Regional Police Department.
