It’s hard to believe, but come the end of this term, Pennsylvania State Senator Pat Vance will no longer grace the halls of the State Capitol. One of the midstate’s longest-serving legislators, Vance, a Republican, spent 14 years in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives before her election to the Chamber in 2004. In her time in office, she has authored 38 laws. Among the legislation she is most proud of is the bill that stopped insurance companies from refusing to cover victims of domestic violence simply because they had been abused.

Ask City of York Mayor Kim Bracey what especially valuable traits female public servants offer, and she replies without hesitation, “It’s a sense of urgency. We want it done now. We are the ultimate multi-taskers and not just because we’re mothers, grandmothers, aunties, housekeepers and home makers, but we do all those things well on top of an 8-to-5 job. I love that about our women elected leaders.”
