Patty H Kim

Patty Kim is a former news anchor, reporter, and Harrisburg City Councilwoman, and was first elected to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives in 2012. She has been a leader in government reform and transparency. This is apparent when she returned her cost of living increase, and introduced a bill to eliminate the yearly pay increases. Additionally, she is one of the few members of the House to post all of her expenses on her legislative website for public review. Kim’s legislative methods include collaborating with colleagues to find a statewide solution to problems. She has introduced bills to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour, twice, and continues to fight for a wage increase to restore the middle class. Currently, she serves on the Appropriations, Education, Local Government and Transportation committees.
