On Monday, Susan Concannon, state representative for 107th District, officially filed for re-election to serve a seventh term as State Representative.

With more than 12 years of dedicated service to the community, Susan has been instrumental in enacting meaningful legislation and policies that address critical issues facing our state, particularly in the realm of child welfare and foster care.

As the Chair of both the Child Welfare & Foster Care Committee and the Joint Committee on Child Welfare Oversight, Concannon has demonstrated unparalleled commitment to improving the lives of vulnerable children and families throughout the state. Under Susan Concannon's leadership, these committees have implemented innovative initiatives and reforms aimed at enhancing support systems for foster children, strengthening families, and ensuring the well-being of our youth.

In addition to her pivotal roles in child welfare advocacy, Concannon serves as a valued member of the Appropriations and Judiciary Committees, where she has played a crucial part in shaping the state budget and advancing legislation to promote fairness and justice for all citizens.

 "It has been an honor to serve my constituents and fight for their interests in the state legislature. I am proud of the progress we have made together, but there is still much work to be done. I am committed to continuing the fight for a brighter future for all residents of our great state," Concannon said. 

Concannon looks forward to continuing her work on behalf of the people of District 107, advocating for policies that promote equity, opportunity, and prosperity for every citizen.
