Lauren Lareau

Pennsylvania House, District 142, PA

Lauren is an educator, an advocate, and a leader in her community, fighting for healthcare and resources for addiction recovery, education funding, environmental protection, and social justice. Lauren earned a graduate degree at the University of Pennsylvania’s Graduate School of Education before starting her own tutoring business to help high school students find success in school and beyond. She has lived in Langhorne since 2011, and is determined to become the first woman to represent the 142nd District in PA’s State Assembly!

In 2015, Lauren recognized the need for state funding of our public schools when her son’s A+ elementary school that had served her community for generations was closed due to state budget cuts. Lauren is determined to fight for equitable state funding of our public schools using the Fair Funding Formula. Lauren has been an active member of her township’s Environmental Advisory Council since 2017 (to which she was elected chair in January 2020), and understands the need for legislative support of PA’s Department of Environmental Protection if we want to maintain our constitutional right to clean air and water. Lauren’s involvement with the Lower Bucks Addiction Task Force since 2018 has emphasized her view that the state legislature must do more to protect people’s health and recovery from addiction. So many of our local problems can only be fixed at the state level, and Lauren is determined to bring her voice of change to Harrisburg.
