About Becky Corbin
Representative Becky Corbin has served the constituents of the 155th Legislative District for over 30 years. She is a community leader and volunteer. As our State Representative, since 2013, Becky has fought for our families and community, passing legislation important to us.
On November 16, State Rep. Becky Corbin (R-Chester) will speak in Uwchlan Township, Chester County at the grand opening of a new facility for a high-tech seat manufacturer whose products protect kids from fires on school buses and defend soldiers from roadside bomb blasts. The scene at the 300,000 square foot plant of the United States Seating Company (USSC) could have played out quite differently if not for Corbin and other state and local officials. But because she cut through the red tape, her community will be celebrating the creation of 250 family sustaining jobs generated by the company’s expansion.
“They were close to leaving,” Corbin said of USSC, “but now we have a great success story in Chester County. It’s so satisfying to see this company thrive and decide to move only a short distance away (from Exton) to meet its expansion needs."
Corbin, the Governor’s Action Team, and local economic development groups worked with Joe Mirabile, CEO of the USSC Group, who issued a statement back in April saying that the “USSC team is very excited to continue our growth in Chester County. We are passionate about growing our team and creating manufacturing jobs in the great state of Pennsylvania.”
For Corbin, the USSC story falls right in line with a big part of her mission as a lawmaker: attract companies and spur economic development by reducing business and personal taxes, and eliminating needless, burdensome regulations.
Pennsylvania House of Representatives Speaker Mike Turzai hosted an event on June 13th for Representative Becky Corbin. This event kicked off the Team Corbin campaign to keep common sense in Harrisburg.
Speaker Turzai spoke of the tremendous respect that our Representative has in Harrisburg, her impressive record of accomplishments, and her ability to work across the aisle to produce real results for the people in her district and across Pennsylvania. Some of Corbin’s accomplishments include Act 3 of 2014, which modernized breast cancer treatment, Act 111 of 2016, which closed a loophole in state law that allowed some domestic abusers to escape prosecution, and getting 24 permanent medication drop off boxes installed in the county to combat the opioid epidemic.
Chester County’s strong economy, excellent schools, and generous hospitality have attracted a growing
number of immigrants from India. Today, vibrant Indian communities can be found countywide,
including places like East Brandywine, Uwchlan and Upper Uwchlan townships. In several municipalities,
persons of Indian descent – both immigrant and American-born – now comprise the largest ethnic
minority. We welcome them as friends, neighbors, and business associates.
To further extend our embrace of those who are so richly contributing to the growth and diversity of our
region, I’m writing to urge all school districts in Chester County to establish Diwali as an in-service day
for teachers. The Unionville-Chadds Ford and Great Valley districts have already taken this step.
Diwali, the “Festival of Lights,” symbolizes the triumph of light over darkness in all areas of life. The
holiday emphasizes the importance of self-growth, happiness, and doing what is right. I had the privilege
of celebrating this joyous holiday for the first time shortly after I took office in 2013, when I was invited
to a Diwali event at the Lionville YMCA.
Since that first introduction, I have been honored to support the annual Diwali Food Drive, which has
collected over 160,000 pounds of food for the Chester County Food Bank and several other food banks
serving the county. In addition to Diwali service projects, celebrations like last year’s Diwali Mela in
Hickory Park have opened the holiday to everyone, greatly enhancing our county’s heritage and culture.
Establishing Diwali as an in-service day will allow greater numbers of people to share in the holiday and
demonstrate Chester County’s commitment to welcoming people from around the world.

On Sunday, February 4, 2018, I joined the Zion Lutheran Church of Spring City to celebrate their 275th year as a congregation. Before the celebration, I was pleased to learn that the church is home to Chester County’s oldest organ, built by David Tannenberg. Reverend Paul Townsend graciously invited me to try my hand at playing the organ.
It was an honor to commemorate the church’s 275th anniversary and to be given the pleasure of playing this unique piece of Chester County’s history. I wish the Zion Lutheran Church of Spring City much continued success as a congregation over the next 275 years.
Tonight, I was honored to receive the endorsement of the Republican Committee of Chester County. I received their endorsement because of my hard work in the district and in Harrisburg.
Since taking office, I have been a champion for protecting our friends and families. I have authored legislation to improve women’s health, Act 3 of 2014, to protect victims of domestic violence, Act 111 of 2016, and to extend protections to individuals with mental or physical disabilities, House Bill 1528 of 2017-18. Besides these legislative accomplishments, I continue to work to prevent drug abuse with the installation of drug take back boxes throughout Chester County.
Tonight’s endorsement is one of the first steps to securing a fourth term in Harrisburg to continue to work for you.
