Congresswoman Susan Wild was elected to represent Pennsylvania's 7th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2018. Her campaign was founded upon ideals of fighting for working-class families, something she had long been doing through her legal career, which included becoming the first female Solicitor of the City of Allentown where she shepherded in a new era of accountability and transparency. She has demonstrated her commitment to that fight through her work on the House Education and Labor Committee and the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

"Susan and I both won special elections in 2018 and were sworn in slightly in advance of our freshman class, becoming the first women to represent Pennsylvania in Congress in years. I cannot imagine navigating the insanity of this moment in political history without Susan Wild. She’s smart, hard working, practical and––for all those reasons––a great fit for her PA-7 district. She’s also funny––which is greatly appreciated."
–– Congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon, PA-5
