Kristen Seale the PA House 168
Kristin Seale lives in Media Borough, PA. She is the proud mother of two daughters as well as spouse to Chris Seale. Raised by a hard-working single mother in Baltimore, MD, Kristin’s family instilled in her the belief that if they had enough to eat and a place to sleep, it was their responsibility to serve others in need. She spent her childhood volunteering for members of her community including Maryland School for the Blind, a homeless breakfast, peer groups for children of separation and divorce, and the first wave of people living with HIV/AIDS.
A lifelong public servant, Kristin currently serves on the leadership team of a statewide energy nonprofit that has helped Pennsylvanians of every electric ratepayer class conserve energy and save money through energy efficiency. She has a long track record of protecting and supporting communities in public health, poverty law, and energy, by advocating for and successfully moving bipartisan legislation in two state legislatures through community-led and coalition-based collaboration with elected decision makers. She is a founder of two successful nonprofit women’s sports organizations — one local, and one international in scope. Kristin earned a Bachelors of Public and Community Health from New Mexico State University, and a Masters of Public Administration from Villanova University.
In the summer of 2016, Kristin proudly represented the 7th Congressional District of Pennsylvania as a Sanders Labor Delegate to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. In 2017 Kristin graduated from Emerge PA’s intensive candidate training program, and was honored to be selected from of thousands of applicants for the 2017 national candidate training of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee.
Kristin was elected Rose Tree Media School Board Director in November 2017, winning an historic number of votes in the race. She was sworn in on December 5th, 2017, and is enjoying serving her community and the students of the RTMSD every day.
Kristin’s passion for public service and lifelong grassroots advocacy work inform her commitment to serving all constituents in the 168th House District. Her record of moving and protecting bipartisan legislation in Republican-led legislatures in both New Mexico and Pennsylvania demonstrates her ability to not just reach across the aisle, but build relationships that get real work done for the people she serves.
You can expect her to be an active and compassionate listener, to hear your ideas for a stronger district that reflects your needs, who wants you to inform how she can best represent you. She hopes to bring a strong, community-informed voice to the important decision making that impacts our public safety, public education, civil rights and social equity, improving the health and lives of our community and fostering economic growth in the 168th that benefits everyone.
Kristin has no interest in a partisan seat flip, she’s here to Serve The 168th.
