Deb Baughman is a retired elementary and middle school teacher who has never sought public office until now. In high school, Baughman developed a deep faith in God that continues to shape her life as an active member in Christian ministry. After her family relocated to Pennsylvania in 1985, she became a Cub Scout leader, Sunday school teacher, and teacher in the Cornwall-Lebanon School District. For the first half of her career, Baughman taught elementary school, before developing and teaching a career awareness class for 8th graders. Through that program, Deb partnered with local workforce development leaders. She has served on the executive committee of the Bedford County Democratic Committee, is an appointed Liberty Township Democratic Committee Person, and is a member of the Helen B. Hughes Federation of Democratic Women. Deb is a passionate advocate and leader for rural issues and working families, and a strong proponent for non-partisan, fair, re-distracting.
