Leanne Krueger-Braneky

Prior to elected office, Representative Leanne Krueger-Braneky served as Executive Director of the Sustainable Business Network of Greater Philadelphia, and Senior Director of Strategy and Development at the Business Alliance for Local Living Economies, an organization that supports over 50,000 locally-owned, independent businesses across the country. She has received local and national attention for her work in economic development and public policy, going as high as advising the Obama administration on the needs of local businesses. After her first seven months in office, Krueger-Braneky was named one of the six national finalists for EMILY’s List’s Gabrielle Giffords Rising Start Award. In addition to her legislative duties, Leanne serves as Fundraising Co-Chair of the PA House Democratic Campaign Committee. She became the first woman to represent the 161th legislative district in 2015. Since then, she has quickly emerged as a leading voice for women, families, and our environment.
