Isaac Riston

Pennsylvania House, District 169, PA

Isaac is a substitute teacher for South Western. As a senior in high school, he got started as the first junior councilperson in Millcreek Township. He then pushed for a student representative of his university to be included on the Selinsgrove Borough Council, and he was the student voice for their comprehensive plan. Isaac also had a fellowship in the state house working in the Environmental Resources and Energy Committee under Rep. Mike Carroll, where he wrote legislation and gained valuable state-level experience. He graduated from Susquehanna University with a bachelor’s degree in business administration and public policy.

Isaac ran for Hanover Borough Council because local races became uncompetitive, and he believes voters deserve a choice. As he campaigned, he realized many voters were underrepresented. Isaac will listen to people and actively work to improve the lives and conditions of his constituents. His campaign is people-focused, and he is seeking to use the billions in state surplus on infrastructure, raise and index the minimum wage so workers can live a dignified life, and legalize recreational marijuana to increase revenue and fully fund equitable education. Isaac is running to pass legislation that meets the needs of the people and to create a system where people can be their best selves, living dignified and loving lives.
