ABOUT RYAN MACKENZIE
Ryan Mackenzie is a 9th generation resident of the Lehigh Valley and a strong advocate for what he sees as the most important issues facing Pennsylvania: creating jobs, protecting taxpayers, strengthening education, and reforming government.
He is in his fourth term in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, representing the 134th Legislative District (parts of Berks and Lehigh Counties). A proven conservative reformer, Ryan has successfully authored and passed legislation on some of the most important issues facing Pennsylvania and continues to fight on our behalf.
Prior to being elected to office, Ryan served as policy director at the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry. In this role, he worked on issues relating to unemployment compensation reform, workers’ comp insurance, the Uniform Construction Code, and workforce development. Ryan was successful in championing efforts that saved Pennsylvania taxpayers $100 million by refinancing debt and will save an additional $400 million per year through other reform measures.
He began his career by working on a number of political campaigns and earning his real estate sales license before entering public service and accepting a position at the U.S. Department of Labor.
Ryan graduated from Parkland High School, received his undergraduate degree in Finance and International Business from New York University, and earned his Master in Business Administration from Harvard Business School.
He is involved in a number of charities and non-profit organizations in our community. Ryan currently serves on the board of the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce, the executive council of the Lehigh Career & Technical Institute, the community advisory committee of the Autism Resource Hub of Lehigh Valley, and is a board member of the AHEPA #60 Apartments that provide affordable housing for seniors.
Ryan’s work on behalf of our community has earned him numerous awards. He has been named as a 40 Under 40 honoree by both Lehigh Valley Business and City & State PA; was selected as a Toll Fellow by the Council of State Governments; and received the Guardian of Small Business Award from the National Federation of Independent Business.
