Emily Garbuny Best

State Senate


sd30 emily best

Emily Best is a lifelong learner. Longtime resident of Butler County, Emily has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Pittsburgh and a master’s degree in environmental policy from American University.

She spent two years in West Africa with the Peace Corps. It was there she decided she wanted to learn more about agriculture in Pennsylvania, and when she got home, she did just that. Emily knows that rural communities are key to a healthy society. As an apprentice farmer, she learned every aspect of running a successful farm in central PA. She now serves as General Manager of Tuscarora Organic Growers Co-Operative, where she has learned dynamic problem solving and leadership skills that she hopes to take to Harrisburg.

Emily sees how current legislators in Harrisburg are not bettering the lives of rural Pennsylvanians, and she knows she can be the change that is needed. From working a healthcare system that works for all, to creating a living wage for hardworking residents, Emily is the voice that central PA needs. With her in Harrisburg, rural farmers and families will know they have a person fighting for them.
