Elizabeth Book - Election Result: 17.39%

Party: Independent

Office: PA House ( District: 82 )

I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Pittsburgh in 2006 with a degree in history and sociology and I also received a certificate in children's literature. I worked very hard to graduate in the top two percent of my class at Pitt. In 2007 I earned my master's in library and information science as well as a teaching certificate, and I taught as a school librarian for three years. While on maternity leave I was furloughed from the Mifflin County School District due to the consolidation, and I became primarily a stay-at-home mom to our two little boys. During that time I also was a substitute teacher and babysitter. I currently write a column for the Juniata Sentinel, and my husband and I raise pigs, chickens, and ducks. We also have a very large organic garden.
