State Rep. Kurt Masser was elected to represent the people of the 107th Legislative District, which spans portions of Columbia, Montour and Northumberland counties, in 2010. As their voice in Harrisburg, Kurt is focusing his legislative efforts on controlling state spending, addressing the state’s opioid and heroin epidemic, keeping taxes low, fostering economic development, and protecting Pennsylvania’s children and senior citizens.

During the 2017-18 legislative session, Masser was elected by his colleagues to serve as a member of the House Republican Leadership team as caucus administrator for the 2017-18 legislative session. As caucus administrator, Masser is responsible for managing many business affairs that specifically relate to caucus operations.

Kurt grew up with five brothers and sisters on his family’s farm in Pitman and went to work in the family business immediately after high school. Kurt and his family own and operate several successful restaurants, catering operations, and a farm market in the Paxinos-Ralpho Township areas.

In 2003, Kurt was elected Northumberland County Commissioner. When he took office in 2004, county government was facing a multi-million dollar deficit and a crippling debt. Working with colleagues from both sides of the political fence, Kurt helped eliminate the county’s debt and reduce taxes for the first time in more than a decade.

Kurt is active in the community, having served as president of the Elysburg Fire Company and a coach of the Ralpho Township Youth Sports Leagues. He is a life member of the Brady Fire Company and he is a member of the Free and Accepted Masons and the Reformed Church of Christ.

Kurt is a graduate of Line Mountain High School and Northumberland County Vocational Technical School.

Kurt believes his greatest achievement is his son, Glenn, who graduated from Bloomsburg University in 2010 and graduated from law school in 2013. Kurt resides in Elysburg with his wife, Brenda.
