Hi, I’m Kate McGraw & I’m running for Cumberland County Commissioner.

Cumberland County is my home. I was born in Carlisle, PA and raised in Monroe Township along the rolling Cumberland Valley farmland. I returned back home to Monroe Township from Brooklyn in 2015, because I couldn’t imagine being anywhere else. My husband and I moved into an old farmhouse in the historic village of Churchtown in Boiling Springs to enjoy the quiet, charming respite that our region’s small towns offer.

I have a vision for Cumberland County that will increase our standard of living through the preservation and reverence for the qualities that make our region unique and special. We have some of the most precious farmland in the world, breathtaking historic homes and majestic mountain vistas of the Appalachians, right here in Cumberland County. Our glorious region deserves our protection, and as Cumberland County Commissioner, I promise to lead in a manner that respects this vision.

Thank you for stopping by to learn about my campaign. Let’s continue the conversation about what it means to live, work and enjoy our lives in beautiful Cumberland County.

Let’s work together.

Save the Date!

Don’t forget to vote in the primary election on May 21, 2019.

Kate McGraw for Cumberland County Commissioner

One of the greatest rewards for running for political office are the genuine and lasting connections made with voters and the greater community. It's a humbling and invigorating experience, and I recommend that more people become candidates in our local elections. I want to thank Donald Travis for making this election a real contest and classic display of democracy. Having met so many excellent residents and local candidates on the campaign trail brings me great joy, and makes me proud to call Cumberland County my home.

It goes without saying that I am disappointed in the outcome of this primary race, which is a display of how much insider party politics and money plays a role in our local elections. We need to open our primaries in Pennsylvania to allow Independent candidates and voters a legitimate opportunity to participate in our electoral process. Cumberland County missed another good opportunity.

I look forward to focusing my energies toward the Cumberland County's Agricultural Land Preservation Board's mission to save our farmland. Congratulations to the nominees. I am excited to support Jean Foschi on her journey to becoming our next Democratic Cumberland County Commissioner.
