HARRISBURG – Rep. Tina Pickett (R-Bradford/Sullivan/Susquehanna) has been named one of the Commonwealth’s 100 most influential female leaders by City & State Pennsylvania Magazine, which released its inaugural “Power of Diversity: Women 100” list this week.
The magazine’s honorees include “female public servants, business executives, nonprofit leaders, advocates, academics and others who meet at the intersection of politics and policy.”
“This acknowledgement is certainly welcome news, and I am very honored to be named to this list of prestigious Pennsylvania women, but it is the opportunity to work for and improve the lives of my constituents that is the true reward,” said Pickett. “Pennsylvania is indeed the ‘Keystone State,’ and offers much to its citizens and our great nation.”
On Dec. 1, Pickett will begin her 12th term representing the 110th Legislative District, which now includes all of Wyoming County and part of Bradford County.
During the 2021-22 session Pickett served as majority chairman of the House Insurance Committee. Her legislative service also includes chairmanship of the House Gaming Oversight Committee, and as a member of the House Appropriations, Transportation and Agricultural and Rural Affairs committees. She has been the prime sponsor of more than a dozen bills that have become law.
Before being elected to the House, Pickett served as a Bradford County commissioner from 1996 to 2000. Pickett was also a successful businesswoman who founded and operated the Fireplace Restaurant in Tunkhannock and the Williamston Inn in Wysox.
