Nesbit Announces Re-Election Bid
Grove City, PA – Rep. Tedd Nesbit (R-8) is seeking a second term in the Pennsylvania General Assembly in 2016.
“It’s been a privilege to represent citizens from Mercer County and Butler County during the past 14 months, and I want to keep fighting for the people of this district,” said Nesbit. “We have a governor who is more interested in powerful special interests and what big cities want than the needs of the entire state, and we need to keep strong advocates for rural Pennsylvania in Harrisburg.”
Nesbit was elected in 2014. After being sworn in in January 2015, he has been appointed to and serves on the following standing House committees: Judiciary, Gaming Oversight, Children and Youth and Human Services.
Raised in Mercer County, Nesbit earned a Bachelor of Science degree in political science at Florida State University, where he participated in the Marine Corps ROTC Scholarship Program. After college, he worked as a television journalist in Columbia, S.C. Upon returning to the Grove City area in the 1990s, he was employed as a licensed truck driver by a regional trucking company in Brookfield, Ohio.
While working full time, Nesbit earned a law degree from the Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan. In 2004, he graduated magna cum laude and was named the alumni association distinguished student of his graduating class. Following law school, Nesbit spent a year clerking for the Honorable John C. Reed in the Mercer Court of Common Pleas. He has spent over a decade as an attorney and during that time he also served as an assistant district attorney in Mercer County.
In addition to his professional endeavors, Nesbit has been a long-time board member of the Grove City United Way, including a term as president; an elder and youth choir director at the East Main Presbyterian Church in Grove City; a coach for the Grove City Youth Soccer Association and the Grove City Little League baseball; and the head coach and board president of the Slippery Rock Community Swim team.
The 8th District consists of the Butler County townships of Brady, Center, Cherry, Clay, Franklin, Marion, Mercer, Muddycreek and Worth, and the boroughs of Harrisville, Portersville, West Liberty and West Sunbury; and the Mercer County townships of Coolspring, Deer Creek, Fairview, Findley, French Creek, Jackson, Lake, Liberty, Mill Creek, New Vernon, Perry, Pine, Sandy Creek, Sandy Lake, Springfield, Wolf Creek and Worth and the boroughs of Fredonia, Grove City, Jackson Center, Mercer, New Lebanon, Sandy Lake, Sheakleyville and Stoneboro.
