A 2001 graduate of Lebanon Valley College, Rep. Bryan Cutler has been selected house majority leader by his peers.
According to Lancaster Newspapers, this makes him the first Lancaster County representative to hold the position in over 100 years.
Cutler had previously been Majority Whip.
Harrisburg political reporter Charles Thompson expects Cutler to have a more productive relationship with Gov. Tom Wolf than his predecessor because he is less likely to make deals that the rest of his part won’t accept (compared to the “more-moderate” Rep. David Reed from Indiana County, who choose not to seek re-eelction).
According to his LinkedIn, Cutler graduated summa cum laude from LVC in 2001 with a BS in Health Care Management. He would serve as a manager at Lancaster General Hospital for nearly two years before going on to Widener University School of Law. Inspired by BonusGate, he was elected to the house shortly after graduation and also serves as an attorney with Nikolaus & Hohenadel, LLP.
Cutler still lives in Lancaster County, where he grew up. He is a graduate of Solanco High School.
