Scranton, Lackawanna County - Based on the results in Tuesday's election, three new faces will represent Lackawanna County in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives next year.
All three are democrats. All three pledge to work their hardest for the people.
Sitting in his dining room, which once doubled as a campaign office, Kevin Haggerty said he's ready to get to work.
Haggerty says his number one focus will be jobs.
"We have to negotiate with companies, they're not going to show up here and knock on our doors," Haggerty said. "We have to tell them why we're good, why we're cheaper."
For Frank Farina, a father to several young kids, education will top his priority list.
"I don't look at it as funding. I look at it as an investment in our children and we need to keep them competitive," Farina said.
Both men, along with Marty Flynn, will bring new blood to the state House of Representatives.
After Tuesday's vote, both the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and Senate will stay in republican hands. The new members say they will be willing to compromise, but not when it comes to their morals.
"I will compromise but at the same time, I'm definitely going to be a voice for education, a voice for labor and a voice for our elderly," Flynn said.
When all three men arrive in Harrisburg, they will be considered "freshman" legislators.
They don't worry that the region will lose its "clout" statewide.
"No concerns whatsoever," Farina said. "We have myself, Marty Flynn, Kevin Haggerty, three dedicated men. Their dedication showed through their campaigns."
"I'm not going down there thinking I'm a freshman in anything. They're going to know me. The governor is going to know me," Haggerty said.
