Liz Hanbidge

Pennsylvania House, District 61, PA

As a business owner and child advocate, Liz spent her career giving voice to the voiceless and ensuring constituents are protected. Shortly after law school, she began her own practice in Montgomery County, serving families, small businesses, and nonprofits. Liz's passion for advocacy has also led her to devote significant pro bono time to the Montgomery Child Advocacy Project. Spending a significant amount of her professional time as a court-appointed guardian, Liz worked tirelessly with police, Judges, and the Office of Children and Youth to help protect vulnerable children throughout the county.

As a State Representative for the 61st House District encompassing parts of Whitpain Township, Towamencin, Lower and Upper Gwynedd, and North Wales, she has focused on strongly advocating for persons with disabilities, women, children, seniors, and the environment. Specifically, she proposed legislation to ensure that hearing aids are covered by insurance, to end the waiver waitlist, for greater consumer protections for seniors and LGBTQ+ individuals, preventing horse slaughter, to increase voter access, and ensure that pelvic exams are not unnecessarily performed on non-consenting patients. She supports mental health care and suicide prevention efforts, and co-hosted suicide prevention events. She currently resides in Blue Bell with her family.
