Florindo ‘Flo’ Fabrizio, (D) District Two, has decided not to seek another term. In a statement from the legislator, he says, “My experience as a State Representative has been both humbling and exhilarating… After nearly 45 years of public service, my decision not to seek re-election was not easy, but in my heart, I know full well that it is the right choice for me”.
He has been a member of the House of Representatives since 2003. An Erie native, Fabrizio attended Strong Vincent High School and attended Edinboro University. Fabrizio served as County Clerk and Clerk of Elections until 2002. In addition to his House duties, he serves on the Erie Museum Authority and Pleasant Ridge Manor boards.
Fabrizio thanks his community members by saying, “It has been a privilege, and above all, a great honor to serve the people of the district, as well as the nearly 13 million people of Pennsylvania. Words cannot express the gratitude I feel for the faith and trust that have been placed in me by the citizens of this community. Their confidence in me has provided the fulfillment of a lifetime”.
In his statement, Fabrizio says, “Upon my retirement, I plan to remain active in the community and I will continue my civic engagement to enhance the general welfare for all the wonderful people I have served”.
