Pledging to lead with accountability, transparency, integrity and uncompromising conservative values, Leslie Rossi was elected as the first-ever woman to serve and represent the people of the 59th Legislative District on May 18, 2021. 

A small business owner and real estate developer with a proven track record of success in creating jobs and balancing budgets for more than two decades, Leslie will fight every day in the Legislature to reverse the excessive government overreach, economy-collapsing policies and unchecked executive power that have shuttered far too many family-sustaining businesses, and resulted in what the Department of Labor and Industry has publicized as 500,000 permanent job losses. 

A proud wife, mother of eight, strong woman of faith and a fierce defender of the original intent of our state and federal Constitutions, Leslie is deeply committed to safeguarding our God-given right to keep and bear arms, protecting the sanctity of all human life and reclaiming government to be run by and for the people—free from out-of-touch politicians and special interest coercion. Her other top legislative priorities include enacting landmark election integrity reform, eliminating wasteful spending, and reducing taxes for families, seniors, farmers and job creators to restore a prosperous economy and bring home more well-paying jobs to the 59th District.

Prior to her election to the House, Leslie has remained heavily active in her community and devoted years of volunteer work as a leader for the Greater Latrobe Hockey program and creating the Little Wildcat Development program. Over the years, she has also been a strong supporter of local fire companies and law enforcement equipment needs, backpack meal programs for children and many other community outreach programs that enrich peoples’ lives.

A lifelong resident of Westmoreland County, Rossi lives in Unity Township with her husband Mike and their family. 

The 59th Legislative District encompasses part of Somerset County consisting of the townships of Conemaugh and Jenner, and the boroughs of Boswell and Jennerstown.
In Westmoreland County, the district includes the townships of Cook, Donegal, Fairfield, Hempfield (part of districts Todd, University and West Point), Ligonier, Mount Pleasant, St. Clair and Unity (part of districts Baggaley, Beatty, Crabtree, Dennison, Kuhns, Marguerite, Mutual and Pleasant Unity) and the boroughs of Bolivar, Donegal, Laurel Mountain, Ligonier, New Florence and Seward.
