Sue Helm took office in 2007 with an aggressive agenda to fight for fiscal discipline, economic growth, government reform, while putting the safety of our families first.

During the 2021-22 legislative session, the representative serves as chairperson of the House Gaming Oversight Committee, which oversees slot machine gaming, bingo, small games of chance, amusement laws and table games in Pennsylvania. In addition to its responsibilities regarding legislation, the committee has oversight of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board and aspects that deal with gaming within the Department of Revenue, the Office of Attorney General and the Pennsylvania State Police. She also serves as a member of the Tourism and Recreational Development committee.

After winning her first election for state representative, Helm became the first woman to serve in the Legislature in Dauphin County history. She is now in her eighth term, representing the people of the 104th Legislative District.

The representative owns Century 21 At The Helm and brings her experience with managing budgets, controlling costs and meeting payrolls to the Legislature. She is proud to have been part of the effort to pass on-time, balanced budgets that held the line on spending and did not increase income taxes or debt. The budgets she supported also recognized the economic realities our state faces, addressed the loss of billions of federal dollars and funded priorities like education.

Helm works full time to provide the level of service her constituents deserve and regularly attends community events across the district.

Sue currently serves as a member of the Republican State Committee and has served as a delegate and alternate delegate to the Republican National Convention. In 2000, she was selected as one of two Pennsylvania delegates to serve on the Republican National Convention’s Rules Committee. She served as president of the Dauphin County Council of Republican Women in 2005 and is a past first vice chair of the Dauphin County Republican Committee.

A lifelong resident of Dauphin County, Sue graduated from Susquehanna Township Senior High School and earned an associate’s degree in liberal arts from Harrisburg Area Community College.
