About Patty Kim
State Representative Patty Kim, a former news anchor and reporter and Harrisburg City Councilwoman, was first elected to the state House of Representatives in 2012. During her first term, Kim was a leader in government reform and transparency. She returned her cost of living increase (COLA) and introduced a bill to eliminate the yearly pay increases. She is also one of the only members of the House to post all of her expenses on her legislative website for public review.
Kim's priorities in the General Assembly include taking a solution-based approach to statewide issues, working in cooperation and collaboration with colleagues, and utilizing her record of service to support initiatives that stand to better the lives of the citizens she represents.
Leading her caucus’s charge to provide a livable wage for all Pennsylvanians, in 2017 Kim introduced bill to increase the minimum wage to $15.00 per hour. Twice before she introduced minimum wage bills. She continues her fight for a minimum wage increase to restore the middle class by lifting thousands of Pennsylvanians out of poverty.
Kim serves on the Appropriations, Education, Local Government, and Transportation committees. She also serves as the Democratic South East Delegation Vice Chair of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, the Treasurer of the House Democratic Campaign Committee, and the Treasurer of the Capitol Preservation Committee.

Patty represents the 103rd legislative district, which includes Harrisburg, Highspire, Paxtang, Steelton and parts of Swatara Township.
Prior to her work in the legislature, Kim was elected to Harrisburg's City Council where she served two terms. Her colleagues elected her as council Vice President during her second term.
A 1995 graduate of Boston College, Kim is married to John Sider and together they have two children, Brielle and Ryan.

Suspendisse ultrices, tellus vitae varius convallis, ipsum justo commodo dui, a feugiat mauris turpis ut turpis."
