We need leaders with perspective and experience in government, business, and the community.
Christina Sappey uses an "and", not "or", approach to leadership.
With over 12 years of government experience, Christina will deliver on what needs to get done - she knows and has worked with people in both parties, and can easily navigate complex governmental processes.
She has served as Chief of Staff to former State Representative Barbara McIlvaine Smith (D156), Director of Legislative Initiatives to State Senator Andy Dinniman (D19), and most recently, Chief of Staff to State Representative Carolyn Comitta (D156).
Christina's long track record as a compassionate moderate is well known throughout Chester County and Harrisburg. She is known to listen and work collaboratively with others to create practical solutions.
Christina believes that a budget is representative of an elected official's priorities, and she will work to ensure that education and environmental protection are properly funded and implemented.
Christina Sappey knows business.
She previously managed businesses ranging from a small $100,000 family-owned retail business to a $30 million division within a nation-wide fashion corporation.
Christina understands the business mindset, from start-ups to established corporations. She's worked with businesses to open new stores, strategize pricing, purchase goods, and analyze market trends.
Her business experience will ensure that Chester County economic interests are well-represented in Harrisburg. Christina will also use her business acumen to bring innovation and family-sustaining job growth to our community and across Pennsylvania.
