State Rep. Tina Davis | Emerge Pennsylvania

State Representative & Emerge Co-Founder

State Rep. Tina Davis was first elected to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives in 2010 to serve the 141st legislative district.

Now entering her third term, Rep. Davis has forged a leading role on key issues, including economic development and opportunity, job creation, pay equity, property tax reform and programs assisting families and veterans.

Described by a local newspaper as “an active and accomplished legislator with long roots in the community, and prior experience as township council member,” Rep Davis’s commonsense legislation, votes, and philosophies span partisan divides serve the greater good not only in Bucks county but throughout the commonwealth.

Rep. Davis’ successes in Harrisburg are a natural outgrowth of her experience on Bristol Township Council, where she made helping families and economic development her priorities. As a councilwoman, Rep. Davis implemented the only township-funded program in Bucks County to aid homeowners facing foreclosure. Her attention to detail and the problem of working Pennsylvanians led to her appointments in Harrisburg to key House committees, including Consumer Affairs, Gaming Oversight, Insurance and Liquor Control.

As a resident of Bristol Township, Rep. Davis was frustrated by neighborhood flooding. Not one to sit by and let someone else take care of things, she went to the township office to see what she could do and quickly became enmeshed in municipal operations.

After being elected to Bristol Township Council in 2006, Rep. Davis became council vice president and served on its finance, pension, and building, planning and zoning committees. She quickly built on her early accomplishments addressing road repairs and flooding:

  • She helped to create a local Keystone Opportunity Zone to develop a major vacant property and bring jobs to the area;
  • She worked with county, state, and federal agencies to secure grants and to renovate the municipal building, help local fire companies, and obtain a new street sweeper truck and new camera truck for the sewage treatment plant;
  • She successfully applied for a low-interest state loan to renovate the sewer plant; and
  • She successfully shepherded multiple road and drainage projects.

As a 1983 graduate of LaSalle University with a degree in computer science, Rep. Davis and her husband, Jim, own a small local trucking business.

However, their priorities always revolve around their three children: son James, and daughters Taylor and Cameron.

Rep. Davis is a hockey mom, loves to cook and has volunteered as a basketball coach, room mom at her children’s schools, and with the local Girl Scouts and the American Cancer Society. She has also served as a state Democratic committeeperson.

Despite the full slate, Rep. Davis’ heart and home remain in Bucks County, even as she seeks more solutions in Harrisburg. Her Levittown office is constantly abuzz with community projects, including shredding events and “Treasure Hunts” for missing property being held by the commonwealth.

Rep. Davis is a public servant committed to work on behalf of Bucks County and the 141st Legislative District.
