HARRISBURG – Rep. Charity Grimm Krupa (R-Fayette) was officially sworn into office today at the state Capitol to begin her first term serving the people of the 51st District in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.
“First and foremost, I will use my diverse experience as a mother, wife, trusted local attorney and public servant to protect our God-given, constitutional rights against the woke agenda and big-city politicians seeking to destroy our way of life,” said Krupa. “Just as importantly, I will fight for commonsense reforms in Harrisburg to reduce crushing inflation and make life more affordable for every taxpayer through controlled spending, less regulation, and other free market economic policies that increase opportunities for well-paying, family-sustaining jobs.”

Previously serving as an assistant Fayette County public defender, Krupa is a graduate of Penn State and West Virginia College of Law. As a former Albert Gallatin School Board member, she never voted for a tax increase, won the battle for increased transparency, and worked to end nepotism and insider hiring.
Prior to her election to the PA House, Krupa served as a private attorney with a special focus on civil rights litigation and expertly helping her clients to seek justice any time their fundamental rights were violated.
“In the Pennsylvania House, I will continue to uncompromisingly and unapologetically stand for our non-negotiable right to keep and bear arms, the sanctity of all human life, and parental rights to fully direct the upbringing of their children without government interference,” said Krupa. “I will also work hard to ensure local schools are adequately training students to succeed in tomorrow’s workforce, rather than being indoctrinated through critical race theory, explicit gender, sexual orientation and other radical leftist ideology.”
Charity and her husband, Brian, a brick and stone mason, as well as a taxidermist, both grew up on family farms and have proudly raised their three children on their own farm in Smithfield, Springhill Township, among Black Angus and Scottish Highlander cattle, crops of hay and various vegetables – with horses, hogs and a trio of dogs as well.
The 51st Legislative District is comprised of the following Fayette County communities: the City of Uniontown; the townships of Georges, German, Henry Clay, Menallen, Nicholson, North Union, South Union, Springhill and Wharton; and the boroughs of Fairchance, Markleysburg, Masontown, Point Marion and Smithfield.
