Mayor Tarah Probst endorsed by EMILY’s List for Pennsylvania’s 189th House District
Stroudsburg, PA (September 8, 2022) – Stroudsburg Mayor Tarah Probst, Democratic nominee for Pennsylvania’s House District 189, today announced her endorsement by EMILY’s List, the nation's largest resource for pro-choice women in politics. Having raised over $700 million to elect Democratic women candidates, with this endorsement EMILY’s List continues its support for female politicians who are on the front lines fighting for a woman’s right to her own body.
“EMILY’s List is excited to endorse Tarah Probst to represent Pennsylvania’s 189th House District,” said Vice President of State and Local Campaigns Sarah Curmi. “Probst has served as the groundbreaking mayor of Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania and we are confident she will continue to be a powerful advocate and defender of reproductive freedom in Harrisburg as the representative for House District 189.” This endorsement follows previously announced endorsements by the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO, Planned Parenthood, The Sierra Club, The Pennsylvania State Education Association's Political Action Committee for Education, and Service Employees International Union—providing Mayor Probst sweeping grassroots support entering the General Election.
“I am honored to receive this endorsement from EMILY’s List,” said Mayor Probst, “and will never stop fighting for a woman’s right to her body. Without this right, we will never be truly free. Reproductive health care decisions should be made between a woman and her doctor– not politicians.”
Tarah Probst, the first woman to hold the position of Mayor in Stroudsburg’s 200-year history, is an East Stroudsburg native, was recently re-elected Stroudsburg Mayor with 70% of the vote, and is the Democratic nominee for Pennsylvania’s 189th House district.
