From 2011, the Honorable Margo L. Davidson has proudly served as a Democratic Member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. Davidson was elected Chair of the powerful SE Delegation that spans 8 counties & 35 members outside of Philadelphia which played a major role to bringing PA House Democratic leadership back to the region resulting in the election of Hon. Jordan Harris as Whip & Hon. JoAnna McClinton as Caucus Chair.

Some of Representative Davidson’s successes include building coalitions of change makers who want to help sections like Yeadon, Lansdowne, East Lansdowne, and Upper Darby, thrive. She also takes pride in voting to expand public transportation to give people of lower incomes greater mobility to work and climb the social and economic ladders.

Through communicating infrastructural needs of the community to the governor, Rep. Davidson is both a liaison and an ally who tries to advocate for her constituents. For the next few years, Rep. Davidson wants to develop partnership on the federal level to push for projects that will benefit the people of her district.

She has funneled upward of $165 million in investment to improve infrastructure and several projects including 69th Street revitalization, a new supermarket, Yeadon Library Expansion & improvements to name a few. Rep. Davidson is committed to building strong communities with new construction projects and encouraging the civic engagement in the 164 district which includes parts of Upper Darby Township, and the boroughs of East Lansdowne and Milbourne. In 2014, the district expanded to include the municipalities of Lansdowne and half of Yeadon.
