140th Special Election

Meet Jim Prokopiak

The Democratic Candidate for the 140th Special Election

Jim Prokopiak is a dedicated public servant with over a decade of public service, who is seeking to be elected to represent the 140th District of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. Jim is a lifelong Levittown resident and proud father of 3 children (Jimmy 16 Annie 14, Amelia 14), who all attend Pennsbury schools. He is a graduate of West Chester University and Temple School of Law, and volunteers as a coach for both flag-football and basketball.

Jim currently serves on the Pennsbury School Board. First elected to the board in 2021, Prokopiak has fought against those seeking to undermine public education and supported teachers, while also advocating for the taxpayer. He voted against both the 2022 and 2023 property tax increases due to the impact it would have on struggling homeowners.

From 2002 to 2009, Jim served as a Falls Township Supervisor. Together with Jonathan Snipes and Bob Harvie, Jim changed the direction of Falls Township. He voted for programs that led to high paying jobs coming to Lower Bucks County and expanded recreational access, including fully opening the Falls Community Park, renovating the Pinewood Pool, and providing river access to the public via a boat ramp. Prokopiak championed innovative programs, including implementing a pilot program to switch all of the Township’s streetlights to energy efficient LEDs, which when completed led to hundreds of thousands of dollars of savings for the taxpayers and reduced costly lawsuits against the township. During his 8 year term, he never raised property taxes.

Since 2022, Jim has served as a Bucks County Redevelopment Authority member, where he has advocated for redevelopment projects in Lower Bucks County.

Jim Prokopiak will fight to restore the American dream for all in Lower Bucks County. He will champion legislation that will attract quality jobs that pay a livable wage to Bucks County, provide attainable housing, affordable healthcare coverage, and ensure that public education is fully funded. He will fight to ensure that skills and vocational training is available to all, and will protect women’s reproductive rights.
