2018 Race Update: Christina won 53.44% to 46.56%
Christina Sappey and her husband Jon have lived in Chester County for 25 years. While raising their three children in Chester County, Christina served on the education committee at her church, taught Sunday School, and volunteered at her children’s schools. She is a proud public school parent – her children went to the Downingtown School District – and she volunteered on various school sports and extracurricular teams.
Concerned by the increasing impact of traffic on the historic village of Marshallton and surrounding area in West Bradford, Christina and several other residents founded the Marshallton Conservation Trust (MCT), a registered 501C3 non-profit, where she has been a board member since 2009.
Christina has over 12 years of government experience. She has served as Chief of Staff to former State Representative Barbara McIlvaine Smith (D156), Director of Legislative Initiatives to State Senator Andy Dinniman (D19), and most recently, Chief of Staff to State Representative Carolyn Comitta (D156).
Christina also knows business, having previously managed businesses ranging from a small $100,000 family-owned retail business to a $30 million division within a nation-wide fashion corporation. She understands the business mindset, from start-ups to established corporations. She’s worked with businesses to open new stores, strategize pricing, purchase goods, and analyze market trends. Her business experience will ensure that Chester County economic interests are well-represented in Harrisburg. Christina will also use her business acumen to bring innovation and family-sustaining job growth.
