Meet Representative Mike Sturla

Representing Lancaster in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives

Like most Lancaster residents, I believe in the value of hard work. When I was a child, my siblings and I spent a summer farming a neighbor’s lot to stock our own vegetable stand. At the end of that summer, we were proud of ourselves for having made a grand total of $50 each. I worked my way through college, graduating with a degree in Environmental Design.

A few years later, as a founding partner in two businesses, I created meaningful jobs that paid living wages for more than a decade before ever stepping foot in Harrisburg as your State Representative.

My goal has always been to make sure Lancaster is a place where every child can grow up safe and well-educated. I have a lifetime of vested interest in keeping our economy strong, in creating new businesses and new jobs, and in building an environment where we can all work and retire in comfort and security.

My commitment to Lancaster isn’t just a whim, or a hobby, or a search for glory. Lancaster has come a long way, and I am proud to have been there every step of the way. Some will try to label that as a “career politician,” while others will recognize it as a lifetime of dedicated public service to improving Lancaster.

I have been in this for the long haul, because I believe that with hard work, perseverance, and imagination, we can continue to work together to help make Lancaster the best it can be.

As your State Representative, I have found turning challenges into solutions rewarding and humbling. I enjoy working with residents, non-profit organizations, businesses, educators, religious institutions, and local governments to build a common vision for how we can improve our quality of life here in Lancaster.

Mike Sturla on the Issues

Environmental Protection

As a Pennsylvanian, you have a constitutional right to clean water. Throughout his career Mike has consistently received excellent ratings from local & state environmental groups and has fought to protect and restore our streams and rivers, even in the face of special interests.

Sustainable Growth for Lancaster

Mike has helped secure hundreds of millions of dollars for economic development projects in Lancaster—but economic development alone cannot save Pennsylvania’s struggling cities. Mike is committed to advocating for sustainable revenue options for small cities like Lancaster, an increased minimum wage, and affordable housing.

Fair Public Education Funding

Simply put, Lancaster schools are not being funded fairly. Mike has championed an actual fair funding formula for our schools. He’s defended our children’s right to quality education—and he won’t stop until every dollar of education funding is allocated equitably.

Safety & Wellbeing

Whether it’s pushing for affordable and accessible health care for all, banning untraceable firearms, increasing funding for fire and EMS, or mitigating the impact of trauma in our communities, Mike makes every decision with the well-being of our community in mind.

Mike Sturla is highly rated by organizations that reflect your values.
