Speaker(s)

State Representative Aaron Kaufer represents the 120th Legislative District, which includes Courtdale, Edwardsville, Exeter, Forty Fort, Kingston, Luzerne, Pringle, Swoyersville, West Pittston, West Wyoming and Wyoming boroughs, as well as Exeter, Jackson and Kingston townships in Luzerne County.

The 2019-20 legislative session marks Kaufer’s third term proudly serving the people of the 120th District. During this session, Kaufer was selected to be a member of the House Finance, Gaming Oversight, Health, and Transportation committees.

A Wyoming Valley native, Kaufer believes in a smaller and a more effective state government, which provides more power to the people of Pennsylvania. He is focused on eliminating the school property tax burden placed on Pennsylvania’s homeowners. His top priorities include workforce development, expanding job creation and economic development, addressing the ongoing heroin and opioid epidemic, reforming the state’s bloated welfare system and making Pennsylvania more job friendly for the businesses that create them.

Before being elected to the state House, Kaufer managed his family’s businesses, and worked as a marketing representative for Mohegan Sun Casino in Wilkes-Barre. He also serves as a guest lecturer, focused on public policy and many related subjects.
