Now into her fifth full term as state representative of the 147th Legislative District, Rep. Marcy Toepel was re-elected Majority Caucus Chairman by her colleagues for the 2019-20 legislative session. 

Marcy has focused her legislative efforts on property tax reform, cutting government waste, public safety and protection of open space while also supporting the elimination of unreasonable regulations for job creators. 

She gained statewide media attention when her straw purchasing legislation, Act 199 of 2012, was enacted. It restored a crucial law enforcement tool to remove illegal guns and prosecute straw purchasers after a Montgomery County police officer was fatally shot by a gun obtained through a straw purchase. 

A long-time resident of western Montgomery County, Marcy graduated with honors from Boyertown Area High School. 

Prior to being elected to the House of Representatives, she served as first deputy to the Montgomery County Clerk of Courts and more recently to the Montgomery County Recorder of Deeds, where she was recognized as Montgomery County Courthouse Employee of the Year in 2006. In addition to her work with the county courts, Marcy enhanced her business experience by having held positions as an executive assistant and office manager for locally owned businesses. 

She also has served on the Boyertown Area School Board. Her work with area youth extends to serving as a former PTA president and a former volunteer coach and referee with the Boyertown Optimist Club Youth Sports Programs and the Boyertown Baseball League. 

Marcy and her husband, Mark, reside in Douglass Township. They have five grown children and 12 grandchildren.
