Haight seeks state House seat


Frankstown resident Trish Haight has announced her candidacy for the Pennsylvania General Assembly in the 80th District.

Haight has been a conservative activist and community volunteer in Blair County for seven years, having founded the pro-life charity Love Them Both to help support unwed mothers in their time of need.

An accomplished businesswoman with decades of experience in real estate and construction, Haight has consistently given back to the community, ministering to prisoners, counseling disadvantaged pregnant women and working for transparency and integrity in local politics. Haight is married 34 years to Stephen Haight and became a grandmother in 2021.

“We are tired of sending people to Harrisburg who call themselves conservative but never get results,” stated Haight. “I will not be part of the Harrisburg ‘good ol’ boys’ club. I will fight for the reforms that we need,” she said in a release.

Haight said she will fight for election integrity, keeping Pennsylvania open for business, and education freedom and school choice.

The new 80th District will be made up of all of Blair County except the city of Altoona and Logan and Allegheny townships, in addition to part of Huntingdon County (Birmingham Borough and Franklin and Warriors Mark townships.)
