Statement on Seating State Senator Jim Brewster, 45th Senatorial District

Nanticoke, January 12, 2021 – “With affirmative decisions in both state and federal court, State Senator Jim Brewster’s election to the Senate has been confirmed and he will rightfully be seated as the senator for the 45th senatorial district,” said State Senator John Yudichak (I-Luzerne/Carbon).

“Democracy, the rule of law, and the rules of the Senate have prevailed as both candidates were provided fair and equal access to their due process rights to contest an election in our court systems, and Senator Jim Brewster has been declared the winner.

“Senator Brewster, a dear friend and colleague, has handled this difficult episode in the Pennsylvania Senate with his characteristic honor and a deep respect for the institution of the Senate. I wish Senator Brewster, and his family, the very best as he resumes the job he loves– serving the good people of the 45th senatorial district in Allegheny and Westmoreland Counties.”
