STROUDSBURG, Pa. – Stroudsburg Mayor Tarah Probst announced she will run for Pennsylvania Senate in 2018.
Probst announced last week her bid for the 40th District, which includes Monroe and Northampton counties.
She was elected as the borough’s first female mayor two years ago, and was recently re-elected to another four-year term.
“I have worked diligently to bring many positive changes to our town and to our region, and I have decided to run for higher office in order to do more for the citizens of our region,” Probst said in a press release.
The seat is currently held by Pennsylvania Sen. Mario Scavello.
