Representative Tommy Sankey is in his second term of service in the General Assembly. Having represented the 74th District in his first term, Tommy now represents the 73rd District as the result of redistricting. Tommy believes in the need for leaders to step up and fix our country. He will fight to end wasteful spending, while lowering taxes in order to create an economic climate that allows for job creation.
During the 2013-14 legislative session, Sankey was appointed to serve on the following committees: Commerce, Environmental Resources and Energy, Local Government and Children and Youth.
Tommy graduated from Clearfield Area High School in 1999 and went on to Saint Francis University, where he earned his B.S. in accounting. After spending a few years as an accountant, Tommy returned to the family business. Along the way, he has learned the value of achievement through hard work and determination.
Through three generations, the Sankey family has built a Clearfield County success story with R&G Fabrication and Crane Service in Osceola Mills. Tommy is now more likely to be seen operating a crane than sitting at a desk. He has real world experience creating jobs, balancing a budget, and meeting a payroll.
Tommy is active in the Clearfield Chamber of Commerce, the National Federation of Independent Businesses, the National Rifle Association, the Loyal Order of the Moose, and countless other fraternal organizations. He is a member of Houtzdale United Lutheran Church.
The 73rd Legislative District is made up of the following portions of Cambria and Clearfield counties: in Cambria, the townships of Barr, Blacklick, Susquehanna and West Carroll and the boroughs of Hastings, Nanty Glo, Northern Cambria and Vintondale; and in Clearfield, the townships of Beccaria, Bell, Bigler, Boggs, Burnside, Chest, Cooper, Decatur, Ferguson, Greenwood, Gulich, Jordan, Knox, Lawrence (the Glen Richey, Golden Rod-hillsdale and Hyde City precincts), Morris, Penn, Pike and Woodward and the boroughs of Brisbin, Burnside, Chester Hill, Clearfield, Coalport, Curwensville, Glen Hope, Grampian, Houtzdale, Irvona, Lumber City, Mahaffey, New Washington, Newburg, Osceola Mills, Ramey, Wallaceton and Westover.
