About Margo Davidson

Margo Davidson, State Representative for the 164th Legislative District and proud official of the PA Democratic Party, was elected to the House of Representatives in 2010. Her election is the culmination of a lifelong commitment to championing the rights of others and removing the barriers that stand between them and a full and productive life—a commitment that Davidson continues today as a PA state rep.


Davidson was raised by a single mother in Philadelphia, where she learned about the importance of hard work and the true value of community support. Davidson credits her mother with giving her the confidence to overcome obstacles and fight for the things that she believes in, as well as for helping to instill the work ethic that has carried her through her long and accomplished career.

Before she got into politics, Davidson graduated from Temple University and then went on to participate in the University of Pennsylvania Wharton School of Business Management Certificate Program. Davidson also has a Masters degree in Business Administration from Saint Joseph University.


Davidson has always believed in the power of ensuring that people have all of the information that they need to make the best decisions for their lives. To that end, she worked as a radio broadcaster for several years. During this time, Davidson founded two non-profit organizations focused on small business development and the safety of children and families.


Margo Davidson, Upper Darby resident, and the first Democrat, first African American, and first women to represent the 164 th District, has maintained her dedication to public service throughout her political career. She has served as both author and co-sponsor of bills that minimize tax burdens on working families, support small business growth, and increase public safety. She is also the vice chair of the PA SAFE Caucus. She looks forward to seeing what else she can accomplish for the citizens of Pennsylvania.
