State Rep. David H. Rowe has served his local community in Snyder and Union counties through numerous roles for more than a decade while being involved with multiple charitable organizations.

He attended National Sun Yat-sen University in Taiwan and participated in its Mandarin Chinese Immersion Study after two years of Christian missionary work as an educator in southeast Asia. For the past nine years, Rowe has been the owner and operator of CrossFit Lewisburg, which employs several local residents. He attends the New Hope Lutheran Brethren Church in East Buffalo Township and is a leader of its music ministry. 

As an active leader in the local community, Rowe served as vice-chairman of the East Buffalo Board of Supervisors; secretary of the Union County Republican Committee; a member of the Capital Campaign Council of Evangelical Community Hospital;  director of the Central Susquehanna Fire and Emergency Services board; and commissioner of the Buffalo Valley Regional Police Department, among other leadership roles. Rowe has financially supported the Expectations Women’s Center, a pro-life pregnancy aid center in the Lewisburg area; the Buffalo Valley Recreation Authority; Union County Library; local youth sports clubs; and more.

As an East Buffalo Township supervisor, Rowe never voted to raise taxes or expand government regulations. These fiscally conservative policies will continue to be his top priorities as a state representative.

On Sept. 17, 2019, Rowe began representing Pennsylvania’s 85th District in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives after a special election victory on Aug. 20. The district includes most of Union and Snyder counties, including Lewisburg, Middleburg, Mifflinburg and Selinsgrove.

Rowe currently lives in East Buffalo Township, Union County.
