The Pennsylvania Leadership Conference is the premiere gathering of public policy conservatives each year in the Keystone State.  It is the largest and longest-running of the state-based conservative conferences regularly attracting a long list of conservative elected officials, scholars, journalists, and activists for two days of speeches, panel presentations, workshops, and networking.

Scott Perry, U.S. Representative, brings a unique background of hard work, small
business, military leadership and community involvement to the U.S. House of

Perry served three terms as a Pennsylvania State Representative, where he
established a record for protecting taxpayers’ interests in Harrisburg. While serving
there, he was assigned to the Committees on Appropriations, Consumer Affairs, Labor
Relations, Veterans Affairs, Emergency Preparedness, and Rules. He earned the
privilege of serving as the Congressman from Pennsylvania’s 4th Congressional District
(York, Adams & part Cumberland) in 2013. He earned re-election to the newly-
redistricted 10th District (Dauphin, part York, and part Cumberland) in 2018, and
presently serves on the U.S. House Committees on Transportation & Infrastructure, and
Foreign Affairs.

Perry knows the importance of hard work and dedication. He’s the grandson of
Colombian immigrants, and the son of a single mom who fled two abusive situations
and worked several jobs to survive and support her children – with whom she finally
landed in Central Pennsylvania in their first home on Berryhill Street in Harrisburg, then
moved to Dillsburg.  Scott and his family were on public assistance for several years
during his youth.  He was raised in a spartan home, which initially had no electricity and
plumbing, required bathing in a steel tub on the porch, pumped water from a well, and
cut firewood with his older brother to keep the family warm in winter.

Perry began working at age 13 picking fruit at Ashcombe’s Farm in Mechanicsburg.
Since then, he’s worked as a mechanic, dock worker, draftsman and a licensed
insurance agent. He’s a 1980 graduate of Northern High School and the Cumberland-
Perry Vo-Tech School.  He put himself through college while working a full-time job, and
graduated from the Pennsylvania State University in 1991, where he earned a Bachelor
of Science degree in Business Administration Management.
