Gebhard Takes Oath of Office to Begin Serving 48th Senatorial District Residents

HARRISBURG – Senator Chris Gebhard today took the oath of office to begin his first term in the Senate serving the 48th District. The current term will conclude in December of 2022.

During his time in office, Gebhard wants to ensure Pennsylvania has fair and honest elections; reopen the Commonwealth’s economy and schools; help small business owners recover from Gov. Tom Wolf’s draconian lockdown orders; and replace the governor’s tax-and-spend budget proposal with a fiscally responsible budget that puts families and taxpayers first.

“Passing a budget that protects taxpayers from tax increases, like the one that was part of the governor’s budget proposal, is my top priority. As a small employer and father of two boys, I know how critical it is to balance the needs of the Commonwealth – like providing our children with a quality education – with the financial limitations of families and employers,” Gebhard said. “So much has been done in the last year to drive employers from Pennsylvania, and we desperately need to take a different approach.”

Before winning a special election following the passing of Senator Dave Arnold, Gebhard spent the past 25 years working in the insurance field. He currently owns Hoaster Gebhard & Co., an insurance and risk management firm in Lebanon.

Gebhard has not yet been assigned to the committees on which he’ll serve, but will announce that information when it is available.

Residents are encouraged to visit his website at There they will find information on the latest legislative developments in Harrisburg, state programs and the latest happenings in the 48th Senatorial District.

The 48th District includes all of Lebanon County and parts of Dauphin and York counties.
