About Tina Davis

Tina Davis’s path to running for office wasn’t a typical one.  After graduating from LaSalle University, Tina met her husband Jim and they settled into their home in Croydon.  Tina was a professional realtor while her husband grew his own trucking company.  Happily married and both achieving great success in their endeavors, Tina and Jim started a family and now have three beautiful children–James, Taylor, and Cameron.

Tina Davis has been fighting for the people of Bucks County for more than a decade—locally as a council member in Bristol Township and then in Harrisburg as a State Representative for the 141st legislative district.

Now she wants to take that fight to the next level.

Tina’s Not Your Typical Politician

While Tina was nearing her due date with her third child, she got the wake-up call to run for public office after a township matter of stormwater management crept up literally in her front yard. Nine months pregnant and unable to get out of her car to make it to her front door after a heavy rain storm, Tina decided to attend her first council meeting and demand action for herself and her neighbors on an issue the township needed to address.  She organized a local community organization in Bristol Township that focused on identifying a priority list of how the township should address the streets with the most urgent need, and in doing so was inspired to take that hands-on action and run during the next council election, when the pressing problem still needed a champion.

Tina Gets Things Done

In 2006, Tina ran for and was elected to Bristol Township Council. She quickly became council vice president and served on its finance, pension, and building, planning, and zoning committees. She built on her early accomplishments of addressing road repairs and flooding, but was also instrumental in creating a local Keystone Opportunity Zone to develop a major vacant property and bring jobs to the area. Tina played a significant role in securing support from county, state, and federal agencies for renovations to the local municipal building, gaining more funding for the local fire companies and public works operations, and she of course held true to her main platform of improving local road projects stormwater management.

Many local issues are just that—local.  However,  in 2008 America experienced the biggest economic downturn that this country had seen since the Great Depression and the people of Lower Bucks County were hit especially hard when the bottom fell out of the economy.  The pain that was felt across Bucks County could not be addressed on the local level and Tina knew she had to fight on behalf of those most vulnerable citizens she represented, who suddenly were struggling to put food on the table and pay their mortgage.

In 2010, Tina decided to run for State Representative and was elected to serve the 141st district.  Since then she has focused on continued economic development programs including job creation, pay equity, property tax reform, and programs assisting families and veterans.

A Trusted Working Class Voice

As a State Representative, Tina has been a trusted working class voice fighting the hard right-wing politicians as they attacked teachers and union workers, pillaged the environment, and pulled dirty tricks to keep constituents from exercising their Constitutional right to vote—and she called them out every time.  She has fought time and again for sustainable funding for public education, environmental safeguards, better health care, and has vigorously defended women’s rights.  Tina has been working with lawmakers, community organizations, and schools to find ways to keep our children safe while they attend school and is committed to finding the right balance in keeping weapons out of the hands of people who shouldn’t have them, addressing how easily available these weapons are to obtain, and working with local gun ownership groups to create a pathway to a safer future for our children.

Tina is an experienced public servant whose long record of standing up for the right things speaks for itself and she would serve Bucks County proudly as its next State Senator for the 6th Senatorial District.

Tina Works For the Change We Need

Tina sees that much of what is preventing sensible legislation are the backroom deals being made by the boys’ club.  Pennsylvania is second to last, only behind Mississippi, in electing women and so Tina and her colleague Rep. Mary Jo Daley banded together to change that.  In 2015 they co-founded Emerge Pennsylvania.  Emerge Pennsylvania is changing the face of politics in Pennsylvania by identifying and training progressive women to run for office, get elected, and make a difference.

Since its founding, Emerge Pennsylvania has trained more than 45 women, where 12 have gone on to run for office and 7 have won their elective seat. Women all across the country put their name on the ballot and ran in 2017, and now 2018 is shaping up to be the Year of the Woman. It’s a movement—and Tina is excited to be a part of it.

Tina Will Be a Fighter for All of Us

Tina fights for all of us—both young and old—for safer neighborhoods, better government, investments in education, and an expanded safety net for those who fall on hard times, or as shown, bringing partners into Lower Bucks to create those opportunities, because the government should work for the people.

Tina believes that government should be a mirror of the people they represent in their district, not the special interests that line their pockets so that we don’t ever face another economic crash where Wall Street ruins Main Street. Sadly though, it seems that those in control in Harrisburg have forgotten who elected them and whose interest they should represent.

Tina has deep roots in Bucks County, with a long record of accomplishments, but what makes her most effective is that she is no different from those who look to their government for answers.  The same issues that come into her office, Tina can relate to in a very personal way.  The economic downtown that sent dozens of people into her constituent services office everyday hit Tina and Jim pretty hard–as a small business owner and a realtor reliant on a strong economy, both Tina and her husband found themselves struggling to pay the bills and keep their family economically secure.

As a mother, Tina is fighting for more funding to fight the opioid epidemic that is taking over Bucks County. Families need the tools to fight back and that includes better funding from Harrisburg for addiction counseling and working with county officials to keep the public safe from this horrific drug epidemic.

Tina goes to Harrisburg always reminded of the daily struggles of those in Bucks County and now is the time to take that experience and fight for our families by running for the State Senate.
