Rep. Torren Ecker (R-Cumberland/Adams) was elected to represent the citizens of the 193rd Legislative District in November 2018 because of his commitment to the constituents of his district and passion for public service.

From a young age, Torren took interest in local politics and improving his community. Raised with an appreciation for hard work and service to his neighbors, he volunteered at Jefferson Volunteer Fire Company and started working as a young teenager at a small family restaurant. 

Torren is a first-generation college student and graduated from George Mason University with a bachelor’s degree in government. During his time at GMU, he worked on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. for Congresswoman Jo Ann Davis (R-VA). 

After college, he attended Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Michigan where he graduated with honors before returning home to south-central Pennsylvania to start a career and family.

Torren began practicing law at a local private law firm in Hanover. Today, he continues to represent families, veterans, farmers, seniors, non-profits and small businesses on a wide array of legal matters in Adams, Cumberland and York counties.

Torren lives with his wife and high school sweetheart, Laura, and two children, Addy and Oliver, in New Oxford in Adams County. 

Torren has served as a member of the House Appropriations Committee, where he is the chairman of the Subcommittee on Criminal Justice and the House Game & Fisheries Committee, where he serves as the Secretary. Torren has also served as a member of the House Labor & Industry, Veterans Affairs and Emergency Preparedness, and Judiciary Committees. 

Additionally, Torren represents the House of Representatives as an appointed member of the bicameral Performance-Based Budgeting Panel as well as the Select Committee on Restoring Law and Order. Finally, he was recently appointed to serve as a member of the Public State Employees’ Retirement System (PSERS) board.

Torren brings a pragmatic but conservative voice to legislative discussions in Harrisburg.  Using his fresh, energetic approach, Torren prioritizes making connections with his fellow representatives across the state and ensuring that every constituent’s voice is heard.  He will continue to fight for the values of the constituents of the 193rd and the great people of Adams and Cumberland counties
