Chelsa Wagner was a Democratic member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, representing District 22. In 2007, Wagner joined the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. She resigned in January of 2012 after being elected Allegheny County controller in November of 2011.[1] House Speaker Sam Smith (R) initially maintained that he was legally prohibited from scheduling the special election until the state had established new legislative redistricting maps. However, on February 29, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled 4-3 that the special election could not wait and set the April 24 date. The ruling also mandated elections to fill five other vacancies.[2]

Wagner earned her B.A. in Public Policy from the University of Chicago. She went on to receive her J.D./Certificate in Civil Litigation from the University of Pittsburgh.

Wagner has worked as a Policy Analyst. She currently works as an attorney for Rosen Louik & Perry.
