Ann Marie Mitchell

Candidate for State Representative

Ann Marie grew up in a largely working-class community where her parents embraced the American dream. Ann’s father survived post-WWII Ukraine and Germany and arrived in the United States as a teenager with his mother, young sister and stepfather.

Growing up Ann Marie was taught that to survive everyone had to do their part. As a result, Ann Marie excelled academically, got involved in her community both as a girl scout and a candy striper, and held steady employment from the age of 14.  Ann looked to her mother as a shining example of a dedicated community member, who was president of the local PTA Council, an active member of the hospital auxiliary, and later became a Roman Catholic Eucharistic minister — a role she still serves in today at St. Mary’s Hospital here in Bucks County, PA.

  • Wharton School of Business, B.S. Economics, concentration in Finance

  • Juris Doctorate, University of Pennsylvania Law School

  • Loving Wife & Mother of Two College Student

  • Business Attorney with Over 25 Years Experience

Being born in Bristol and growing up in Warminster, Chris understands “that families in our district are forced to make tough choices every day — between paying for necessary health care or paying off a student loan bill or putting food on the table — because I’ve been there with my own family.

My promise to you is that I’ll go to Congress to change Washington and put PA-01 families first again. I’ll fight to lower the cost of insurance and prescription drugs, decrease the burden of student debt, and provide real retirement security for our seniors. And I’ll never forget the community I came from.”
