Representative Milou Mackenzie is a lifelong resident of the Lehigh Valley and an 8th generation Pennsylvanian. She is serving her first term as representative of the 131st Legislative District, which encompasses parts of Lehigh, Northampton and Montgomery Counties.

Before establishing her small business, Mackenzie, who graduated from Nazareth Area Senior High School and earned a BA in English from Cedar Crest College in 1972, had years of teaching experience in several local school districts and also in a private school in Allentown

Mackenzie will use her knowledge of the classroom to stand up and ensure Pennsylvania students receive a quality education while still respecting the concerns of the taxpayers.

In addition to her concerns about education and holding the line on wasteful spending, Mackenzie will also focus on how she can help her fellow small business owners and bring support to our veterans.
