District: PA-30

Party Affiliation: Democrat

Emily Garbuny Best

Emily Best moved to McConnellsburg six years ago to work on an organic farm. Now, she manages a farmers’ cooperative, where she sells locally produced fruits and vegetables, which allows farmers to make a profit and keep their land. She is running for State Senate because she believes communities deserve better politicians than the ones who make promises they can’t keep, who don’t understand what it’s like to raise a family with two working parents, who tell us that they’re looking out for us but really only looking out for themselves, and who are ignoring how hard we must work to survive in this economy. While running as a Democrat, Best believes the two-party system is broken, and a new generation of leaders will change the system and engage more citizens. Emily vows to always put the citizens of District 30 before party politics, because listening, identifying solutions, and compromising creates necessary change.
