Senator Lloyd K. Smucker
Senator Lloyd Smucker was first elected to serve the residents of Lancaster and York counties in 2008, and is currently serving his second term in the state Senate after being re-elected in 2012.
Before running for his current position, Senator Smucker owned the Smucker Company—a family-owned commercial construction firm with more than 150 employees. He was twice elected Supervisor in West Lampeter Township and served four years as a member of the township's planning commission.
With his background in small business, Senator Smucker understands the importance of efficiency and fiscal responsibility and has applied those criteria to his work in state government. When facing any complex state issue, Senator Smucker works with the principal parties to reach practical solutions. Besides supporting pro-growth measures and responsible state budgets, the Senator played an instrumental role in the creation of a historic tax credit program to encourage business investment in local communities.
Since taking office, he has continued to be involved in numerous civic and community organizations, including serving as a member of the PA Workforce Investment Board, the Industrial Resource Center Board and the Community Service Advisory Board.
Senator Smucker currently serves as Chairman of the Senate State Government Committee and as Vice Chairman of the Senate Education Committee. In addition to these two key committee posts, he also serves as a member of the Senate Appropriations, Intergovernmental Operations, Labor and Industry and Local Government committees.
The Senator and his wife Cindy have three children: Paige, Regan, and Nicholas. They attend Zion Lutheran Church in Leola.
