2018 Women Candidates of PA
Party Affiliation: Independent
Elizabeth Book is an independent candidate for the 82nd district because she has no allegiance to party platforms or special interests, but rather the residents of the 82nd district. Through interactions with residents, Book developed a platform supporting the causes of her constituents. Book will advocate for term limits on elected officials, more support for volunteer fire fighters and EMS personnel, support for public education, tax reform on real estate taxes, and protection of the rights for gun owners and hunters. She pledges to hold monthly town hall meetings at fire halls, local EMS stations, and senior citizen centers, in order to receive feedback from her constituents. Book graduated in the top two percent of her class at the University of Pittsburgh, and worked as a school librarian for three years before becoming a stay-at-home mom. She and her husband have a very large organic garden, and raise pigs, chickens, and ducks.
