Ward to run again for State Senate

HOLLIDAYSBURG — State Sen, Judy Ward is running for re-election for the 30th State Senate District.

“It has been an honor to represent the residents of the 30th District in the State Senate,” stated Ward.

A lifelong Blair County resident, Ward was elected as senator in 2018, following two terms in the state House of Representatives.

“As your state senator, I have stood up to Gov. Tom Wolf and others holding similar liberal ideals who have wanted to take away our constitutional rights, increase taxes and block election reforms and oversight,” Ward said.

Ward has supported legislation to protect Second Amendment rights by allowing law-abiding

Pennsylvanians to carry without a permit, ban vaccine mandates, ensure parents decide what’s best for their children, preserve the sanctity of the unborn and give power back to the people with a constitutional amendment providing for Voter ID.

“We have seen an unprecedented push for unconstitutional mandates on the citizens of Pennsylvania,” declared Ward. “I refuse to allow government to dictate to parents what is best for their children, penalize those who choose not to get vaccinated and stand in the way of secure and fair elections.”

Ward is a graduate of Hollidaysburg High School and earned a nursing diploma at the Altoona Hospital School of Nursing. She is a graduate of R.U.L.E.

The Pennsylvania Rural Urban Leadership Program run by the Penn State University College of Agricultural Sciences.

Ward resides in Hollidaysburg with her husband, Bill. They are the parents of two grown sons, Bill Jr. and Adam.
