WESTMORELAND COUNTY, Pa. — Leslie Rossi, a mother of eight and creator of the Trump House in Youngstown, Westmoreland County, will be sworn in Monday as the state representative for the 59th Legislative District.
Rossi was declared the winner of the special election to fill the seat left vacant by Rep. Mike Reese, who died suddenly in January at age 42.
Rossi came onto the political scene in 2016 when she painted the Trump House.
The 59th Legislative District for the Pennsylvania House of Representatives is made up of parts of Westmoreland and Somerset counties. Rossi will be the district’s first female lawmaker.
