Based on his commitment to bring more accountability to state government, Jim Marshall was elected to represent the 14th District in Beaver and Butler counties in November 2006. As a result of redistricting, he now represents part of Beaver County.
Jim is a pro-life, pro-Second Amendment lawmaker who believes in a small government whose duty is to protect the environment and citizens of the Commonwealth and the country from real and present danger.
