Candidate Spotlight: Maureen Madden

Maureen Madden is running for her second term as a State Representative, so she can continue to advocate for women’s health, while eliminating barriers for a woman’s right to choose. Prior to serving, Maureen was an educator at East Stroudsburg University – working where she lives. Maureen began working in politics as a nineteen-year-old volunteer. She has been involved in organizing unions, fighting for women's issues and getting Democrats elected for over forty years.

Her other priorities include Universal Health Care and Medicaid expansion, human rights, voter, campaign finance and property tax reform and job creation. Fracking is also a concern because of its threat to Pennsylvania’s water supply.

Maureen enjoys connecting directly with her constituents on issues that affect their lives, especially during the summer when the General Assembly is not in session.
