Rep. Keith J. Greiner, a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), will be a fiscal watchdog for the 43rd District in Harrisburg. Keith will bring his expertise in auditing, accounting and tax law to the Capitol to defend Pennsylvania’s taxpayers and ensure state government is administered efficiently.
Keith gained an understanding of sound financial practices and the needs of the private sector during his nearly 25 years of experience in the business world. He will work to correct the out-of-control government spending and over regulation that have saddled employers and hampered job creation. Promoting tax fairness will help Pennsylvania’s families to thrive and employers to compete.

Along with job creation, Keith will focus on public pension reform. He believes, going forward, public servants should receive the same benefits as the people for whom they work. His expertise in accounting will benefit the process of resolving Pennsylvania’s multi-billion dollar public pension quagmire.
Keith’s fiscal acumen also will be an advantage during the state budget process. He will fight to ensure that Pennsylvania focuses its limited resources on important priorities first, such as job creation, education, agriculture and transportation. The Commonwealth must also eliminate debt and wasteful spending from the budget.
As a lifelong resident of Lancaster County, Keith understands the values of the people he serves and will embody the 43rd District’s pro-life, pro-traditional marriage and pro-Second Amendment principles in the Capitol. This will extend to his refusal of taxpayer-funded per diems, vehicles, meals and cell phones.
No stranger to public service, Keith most recently served as the controller of Lancaster County. In this role, he kept county government finances on the straight and narrow and helped to hold the line on property taxes. Prior to his county service, Keith was an elected Upper Leacock Township supervisor and an elected auditor. He also is an active volunteer with the Upper Leacock Fire Company.
Keith is a graduate of Penn State University and is a life member of its alumni association. He also is active in his church and serves as a member of the American Business Club of Lancaster (past-vice president) and as treasurer of the Ressler Mill Foundation.
The 43rd Legislative District is comprised of the following municipalities: the boroughs of Akron and Millersville, and the townships of West Earl, Upper Leacock, East Lampeter, West Lampeter, and Pequea, as well as the 8th precinct of Lancaster Township.
