Committed to standing up for taxpayers, conservative and family values, as well as serving his community, Rep. Torren Ecker (R-Cumberland/Adams) was elected to represent the citizens of the 193rd Legislative District in November 2018.

From a young age, Torren took an interest in politics and learned the value in his family’s conservative roots as he worked through school. Raised with an appreciation for hard work and service to his community, 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 cum laude from George Mason University with a bachelor’s in government. During his time at GMU, he worked on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. for Congresswoman Jo Ann Davis. 

After college, Torren was determined to devote his career to making a difference in people’s lives, so he decided to attend Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Michigan. He graduated in the top 5 percent of his class 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.

Serving through leadership roles in various organizations in his local community, including the East Berlin Community Center, Rotary Club, Chamber of Commerce and Hanover Area Young Professionals, Torren has seen firsthand how government does and does not work for taxpayers.

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

He is committed to fighting against wasteful spending, tax hikes and burdensome regulations while in Harrisburg. His legislative focus will be on promoting workforce development, a competitive business environment and standing up to the special interests responsible for out-of-control property taxes. Torren is looking to give back to the people of Pennsylvania a government that puts the people first, protects individual freedoms and limits government intrusion in citizens’ daily lives.
