Jacob “Jake” Doyle Corman III, of Centre County, was elected to the Senate of Pennsylvania in 1998. Senator Corman represents the 34th Senatorial District, which includes all of Centre, Mifflin, and Juniata counties and part of Huntingdon County.

Senator Corman was elected in 2020 to serve as President Pro Tempore of the state Senate, where he presides over the Senate floor when the Lt. Governor is unavailable and fills the position of Lt. Governor if the office becomes vacant.

As the top-ranking official in the Senate, Senator Corman is responsible for appointing the chairs and members of the Senate’s 22 standing committees while serving as an ex-officio member of those committees. The office also refers bills and resolutions to the appropriate Senate committees for consideration.

From 2015 to 2020, Senator Corman served as Senate Majority Leader, the second highest-ranking position in Senate leadership. In that position, Senator Corman set the legislative agenda, developed policies and strategies for the Senate Republican Caucus, and chaired the Senate Rules and Executive Nominations Committee.  He also played a major role in negotiating issues with the Administration and House of Representatives as well as supervising action on the Senate floor.

First elected to Senate Leadership in 2009, Senator Corman served as Chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, which reviews all legislation for its fiscal impact and plays a crucial role in developing the state budget.

Senator Corman has a reputation for taking a pragmatic approach to how the House, Senate and Governor’s office can collaborate to make Pennsylvania government work for Pennsylvanians. His hands-on experience in state and federal government has made him one of the General Assembly’s foremost authorities on public policy and fiscal issues.

Rep. Seth Grove has tirelessly served the 196th District since 2008, and during his time in office, he has consistently advocated for streamlined, more efficient government and commonsense- conservative principles.

Rep. Grove’s path to public service began in high school when he enlisted in the U.S. Navy and was selected for its nuclear engineering program and submarine school. Due to a childhood heart condition, he was unable fulfill the enlistment. Undeterred, Seth opted for a major in public administration at York College to find another way to serve. He attributes this deep sense of civic responsibility to his grandfather’s World War II stories and his father’s service in the Navy during the Vietnam War.

Rep. Grove is dedicated to furthering the interests of the 196th District, York County and Pennsylvania.
