HARRISBURG – Joined by family, friends and supporters, Rep. Marla Brown (R-Lawrence) was officially sworn into office today at the state Capitol to advocate for residents of the 9th Legislative District.
Brown is serving her first term in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and becomes the first Republican elected to be the voice for the people of the 9th District since 1952.
“I look forward to continuing to work to help Lawrence Country and the entire Commonwealth remain a great place to live, work and raise a family,” said Brown. “I am committed to improving the quality of life for all residents and making sure our children have the best education available.

Prior to being elected, Brown spent 15 years as an executive at UPS. She moved on to open a medical spa in Georgia and grew her business and brand from the ground up for nine years. She then took a position as chief executive officer with a nonprofit Catholic pro-life organization, the Pregnancy Aid Clinic, whose growth she tripled in only three years by adding locations and increasing funding for its mission.
To ensure continuity of constituent service, Brown’s district office is now open for business. The office is located at 28 N. Mill St., New Castle. It will be open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., and the telephone number is 833-431-0502.
“I encourage anyone with a state-related question or concern to call or stop by my district office. My staff and I are here to help,” said Brown.
