HARRISBURG - Rep. Joe Kerwin (R-Dauphin/Schuylkill) was sworn in today to represent the people of the 125th Legislative District.
“I was 19 when I swore allegiance to the Constitution and the United States of America for the first time,” Kerwin said. “Now, nearly a decade later, I stand again to reaffirm that allegiance to our state and federal constitutions. These are documents which I have studied, sworn to protect, and revere. I am humbled by the opportunity to continue to serve as the new State Representative for the 125th Legislative District. I will represent you and your families with a fierce loyalty to our district and a solemn obedience to our God-given rights and sacred American values. Today, like all days, I am proud to be an American and a Pennsylvanian.”
