Heather Boyd

State House Pennsylvania — HD-163 Democrat
Open Seat2023
As a mother of four and a grandmother to one, Heather Boyd knows just how important it is to build a safer Pennsylvania for the next generation. Throughout her career, she’s been a champion for children and families—working alongside teachers and school counselors in Upper Darby to advocate for commonsense solutions to the gun violence epidemic that is putting too many students at risk.

If elected, Boyd is committed to securing needed funding for community violence prevention programs and passing laws to implement stronger background checks and strengthen safe storage requirements. She will also be a strong advocate for legislation that would close the kinds of gun sale loopholes that allow individuals who commit domestic abuse and those with a known history of wanting to hurt themselves or others to obtain weapons. Boyd understands that we need to address the root causes of violence head on—and in Harrisburg, she’ll push for solutions that will improve additional mental health services, reduce poverty, and provide safe after-school opportunities for kids across the Commonwealth.

So much hinges on the outcome of this crucial special election—including the fate of the majority in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. Gun safety champions fought tirelessly to secure the seats necessary to finally improve their state’s gun laws in 2022, and we can not let it be in vain. Now more than ever, voters in Delaware Country must send champions like Heather Boyd to Harrisburg. We know that with her helping to lead the charge, Pennsylvanians of all backgrounds can rest easier knowing that they have a champion fighting for their safety everyday.

We are proud to endorse Heather Boyd for the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.
