About Susan WildRead Press Release
Congresswoman Susan Wild was elected in 2018 to represent the Lehigh Valley and Pennsylvania’s Seventh District. Previously, she served as the first female solicitor of the City of Allentown, where she was recognized by Governor Tom Wolf for her leadership and contributions to Pennsylvania.
Born to a military family and representing a district with a large number of gun owners, Congresswoman Wild knows that it’s possible to support strong gun safety laws and the Second Amendment at the same time. She defeated an NRA-backed opponent in 2018 and has stood up for her constituents’ safety in Congress by supporting the Bipartisan Background Checks Act, which would close loopholes that currently allow criminals and domestic abusers to get their hands on guns with no questions asked.
