Republican Vicki Lightcap has announced her candidacy for the 131st State House District.

“I look forward to delivering my message and discussing my qualifications with the voters of the 131st State House District,” Lightcap said. “With over 35 years’ experience as a businesswoman in finance and manufacturing, I have a unique perspective on what strengthens our economy and how jobs are created, and I can tell you, the best way for government to help business is to get out of the way.”

For 20 years, Vicki Lightcap was a former small business owner and CFO in the manufacturing industry. Additionally, she’s worked for 15 years in the finance and mortgage industries.

“Our next state representative must be a true conservative, and my record speaks for itself. In addition to serving as mayor [of Pennsburg Borough], I’ve served as president of my local school board. I’m proud to say that I’ve never voted to raise taxes and always respected taxpayer dollars. I’m also a staunch conservative who will fight to protect our constitutional rights and life.”

Lightcap is a two-term mayor of Pennsburg and the first woman mayor ever elected there. As president of the Upper Perkiomen School Board, Lightcap held the line on taxes and worked to form a public and private partnership to establish before and after care services for working families, a first for the district.

A member of the NRA, she is a constitutional conservative and wife, mother and grandmother who was driven to run so she can do her part in making sure future generations live freely, safely and prosperously.

“Like all things worthwhile in life, winning this election is about putting in the work, and I promise my supporters and the voters that I will knock on more doors, meet with more voters and work harder than any other candidate in this race.”
