With the Addition of Rep. Scanlon, New Dems will Continue Advancing an Agenda that Fights Inflation and Cuts Costs for Americans

Today, New Dems unanimously voted to induct Representative Mary Gay Scanlon (PA-05) as the Coalition’s newest Member. Now at 99 Members strong, New Dems look forward to working with Rep. Scanlon to advance an agenda that fights inflation and cuts costs for Americans by executing the New Dem Action Plan to Fight Inflation.

“New Dems are excited about the unique experience Representative Mary Gay Scanlon brings to our Coalition, especially as we continue our work in Congress to fight inflation and lower costs for all Americans,” said NDC Chair Suzan DelBene (WA-01). “Throughout her career, Congresswoman Scanlon has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to supporting economic growth in her district, and she has been a fierce advocate for Pennsylvania’s children, families, and workers. New Dems look forward to working with Rep. Scanlon to advance a policy agenda that lowers prices by strengthening supply chains, addressing labor shortages, and making everyday goods more affordable. With Rep. Scanlon’s help, we will continue to make progress in the fight against inflation to improve Americans’ lives.” 

“I am thrilled to join the New Democrat Coalition and be part of the crucial work needed to deliver results for the American people,” said Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon (PA-05). “My district is a microcosm of America, with a diverse population, mix of ideological viewpoints, and a transitioning economy. All of this makes PA-05 particularly poised to be a leader in showing how our national economy can best be positioned for a prosperous future. I am eager to work with fellow New Dem members to develop and implement pro-growth, pro-innovation policies that will benefit my constituents and the entire greater Philadelphia region.”

Rep. Scanlon represents Pennsylvania’s 5th Congressional District and is a member of the House Judiciary Committee, House Committee on Rules, and Committee on House administration.
