Tim Houser for PA State Senate, News &  Press Releases
We can’t say thank you enough!  It’s been an honor to be your candidate for State Senate in the 35th District.  We congratulate Senator Wozniak on his victory last evening and wish him, his staff and family continued success as he embarks on another term.  
As for me, I take a moment to reflect on the last 10 months. The wonderful people I have met, the stories, joys and concerns, the loving generosity of so many volunteers, the acceptance and encouragement of folks far and near.... And oh, the places I've been! Beautiful places that I haven't visited since childhood; places I remember from my high school and drum corps days and familiar places in my own backyard that I may have even taken for granted.  This is indeed a wonderful district ....My home and my heritage!   
As for Marianne and I, and my entire family, today our lives go back to normal.  We continue to serve our community in the ways that we have always done, and we express to you, our volunteers and supporters our heartfelt thanks. 
And to everyone within earshot of this message, I encourage you to take a leap of faith and do what you can to make our world a better place.  God charges us to work and live together, be kind to others, and to care for those less fortunate.  What a simple request! 
Consider volunteering for a worthy cause.  Do what you can to secure a great future for our children.  And, do not become jaded by this loss. 
God places us where he thinks we can do the most good.  He sometimes asks that we bloom where we are planted.
God has decided that I should remain right here and assist families in “finding a new normal” during times of loss.  I love this role and will remain passionate to the needs of this area. 
“Much is required of those with much”

Tim Houser for PA State Senate, Meet Tim Houser

Prior to making the commitment to run for public service in the 35th District, Tim Houser, a Tyrone native, spent 30 years as a funeral director and business owner in Ebensburg, Cambria County.  In that time he has met the needs of his neighbors in the most trying times of their lives.  As a result, Tim has learned first hand the importance of advocating for senior rights in Pennsylvania.

Tim began working for Askew Funeral Home in Ebensburg in 1982.  A short time later, in 1986, he purchased the funeral home from the Askew family and has grown the business to two locations with ten employees.  Tim's son, John Paul now manages Askew-Houser Funeral Homes, Inc. and is in the process of adding a third location.

Knowing the value of community resources, Tim served 18 years on the Ebensburg Area Business Commission where he served two terms as president.  He was instrumental in establishing the Ebensburg Mainstreet Partnership and was a founding member of the Ebensburg Potatofest Committee.

An active community volunteer, Tim is a member of Dauntless Fire Company; a former Ebensburg Rotary Club member, where he served as a president and Paul Harris Fellow and former trustee of the Ebensburg Council of Knights of Columbus.

Tim also has a devout commitment to the young people of the 35th District.  As a former music teacher,  he has offered his skills to the Musical Theatre Program at Bishop Carroll High School and along with his wife, Marianne, co-chairs the annual “Lift Your Voice” Singing Contest at Holy Name Church.

Tim Houser is a proud graduate of Penn State University where he graduated with a B.S. in Music Education.  During his time at Penn State, Tim worked simultaneously as a church choir director, part-time customer service at the local Sears & Roebuck store and at a local funeral home.

After graduation, Tim taught general music and served as Arts & Music Department Chair at Bishop Guilfoyle High School for two years. He began graduate work at Penn State for Education Administration but became compelled to his study to Mortuary Science.  Tim graduated with an additional diploma from the Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science.

Tim and his wife, Marianne McNulty have four adult children, John Paul (wife Vanessa), Joseph, Cecilia and Claire; and one grandchild, Sebastian.  He and his family all reside in Ebensburg, Pennsylvania where he remains a Pro-Life advocate, as well as an advocate of volunteerism, senior rights, and second amendment rights.
