Marty Causer is committed to ensuring the voice of rural Pennsylvania is heard in Harrisburg.
He is a vocal advocate for a limited government that responsibly invests taxpayer dollars without overtaxing its citizens. He opposes overregulation of business and industry, and supports policies that advance economic development and the creation of good, family-sustaining jobs.
In June 2020, Marty was elected by his peers to serve as Majority Policy Committee chairman. He was re-elected to that post for the 2021-22 Legislative Session. The committee examines an array of issues identified as top priorities by lawmakers through hearings, informational meetings and on-site visits, helping to drive the caucus’ policy agenda for the session. He is the first member from McKean County to serve on the leadership team since Victor J. Westerberg of Kane, who served as minority policy committee chairman in the 1975-76 session.
Earlier in the 2019-20 session, Marty was serving his third term as chairman of the House Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee. He continues to chair the Legislative Timber Caucus and the Northwest Caucus.
Since he was elected to the House in 2002, Marty has made it a priority to ensure state government is accessible to everyone in the 67th District, which includes all of Cameron and McKean counties, as well as most of Potter County. He operates three full-time district offices in Bradford, Kane and Coudersport and offers monthly satellite office hours in Emporium and Port Allegany. He also provides a toll-free number so people in the furthest reaches of the district can contact him at no cost.
Marty currently serves as a member of the advisory board of the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.
He previously served as a director of the Port Allegany Area Economic Development Corporation, as vice president of McKean County’s EMS council and as director of operations for the Port Area Ambulance Service. He formerly worked as a dispatcher at the 9-1-1 center in Smethport and as a part-time police officer for the Borough of Port Allegany.
A graduate of the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, he earned a bachelor’s degree in history and political science. He was elected Annin Township supervisor at the age of 19, a position he held for nine years.
Marty resides in Turtlepoint and is a member of Saint Mary’s Church in Sartwell. He has three children: Matthew, Morgan and Mallory.
