Liz Hanbidge is a Democratic member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, representing the 61st Legislative District in Montgomery County. Prior to joining the state legislature, Liz owned a law practice in Montgomery County serving families, small businesses and nonprofit organizations.
Her passion for advocacy has also led her to devote significant pro bono time to the Montgomery Child Advocacy Project. Spending a significant amount of her professional time as a court-appointed guardian, Liz has worked tirelessly with police, Judges, and the Office of Children and Youth to help protect vulnerable children throughout the county.
Hanbidge continues to teach civics to sixth graders at Gwyn-Nor Elementary and East Norriton Middle School, working in conjunction with the local bar association. Rep. Hanbidge has a consistent record of standing up for those most vulnerable, sponsoring House Bill 2192 providing for BPA-free plastic container products for infants. Additionally, she has sponsored House Bill 1435, The Family and Medical Leave Act. Rep. Hanbidge has also supported mental health care and suicide prevention efforts for our Veterans and First Responders in House Bills 951 and 1459.
As the first female Democrat elected to represent the 61st District, Liz has fought for the rights of marginalized communities, sponsoring House Bill 950, the LGBTQ Senior Community Grant Program to provide assistance to aging members of the LGBTQ Community. Rep. Hanbidge is passionate about transparency and communication with her constituents, hosting 8 town halls and open houses during her year in office.
For too long, career politicians throughout Pennsylvania have ignored their constituents and catered to special interests. In the meantime, Liz has spent her entire career giving voice to the voiceless and fighting to protect those most harmed by Harrisburg’s apathy. Given her proven record of fighting for the rights of vulnerable Penssylvanians, Representative Liz Hanbidge plans to continue her efforts to protect the children, mothers, veterans, and elderly in Montgomery County and beyond.
