Rep. Donna Scheuren was sworn in on January 3rd, 2023, to serve 147th Legislative District.
As a businesswoman, manufacturer’s representative and vice president serving in the industrial commodities and manufacturing sector for nearly 30 years, Donna has engaged with businesses here in the United States and abroad for years. With a focus on winning manufacturing contracts for her principles, she has helped to keep thousands of people employed. She has also been a proud small business owner, as well as an administrator overseeing the health and benefits of her family’s construction company.
With a strong business background, Donna understands the needs of job creators and the importance of common-sense solutions to remove burdensome regulations currently hindering small businesses. With inflation and high gas prices affecting the working class, struggling families and seniors on fixed incomes, Donna knows reducing taxes and investing in infrastructure is a must to bring about energy independence. Having a strong work ethic herself, she’d emphasize investment in the trades and more tech schools throughout the state to keep our greatest asset in the Commonwealth – our workforce.
As an advocate for strong and safe communities, she believes in policies that hold criminals accountable for their actions and programs that support local police, fire, and EMS with retention and recruitment services to help them stabilize.
As a defender of our Constitution and the principles of our Founding Fathers, Donna is a strong voice for holding government accountable, economic freedom, good schools, election reform, private property rights, advancing prosperity, deregulation, the rule of law, low taxes and the protection of life and liberty.
As a dedicated public servant, Donna has played an active role in the community for 12 years. With three terms of service on the Souderton Area School Board as the board’s vice president and finance chairman, she accentuated board governance, and delivered fiscally-responsible budgets for the taxpayers of her district. Her role in local government expanded into board service on the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit and Legislative Committees, where she interacted with school directors across Montgomery County on educational and social services supporting all 200-plus schools. In 2020, she was also appointed to The Foundations Board of Trustees for Grand View Health, where she serves in the field of finance on GVH’s Investment Committee.
Donna received a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from The College of New Jersey. She was also a graduate of Cherokee High School in Marlton, New Jersey.
Soon after their marriage in 1996, Donna and her husband, Dave, bought land in Lower Salford Township. Now residing in the house her husband built from the ground up in 2001, he too is involved in local government and serves as a Township Supervisor and a board member on the Lower Salford Sewer Authority. They are also long-time parishioners of Corpus Christi Catholic Church in Lansdale, PA.
Donna and Dave are fortunate to have the majority of their immediate families living within the 147th House District, but are also blessed with large extended families encompassing many cousins, nieces and nephews that make family reunions a big event.
