Pam Curtis knows the needs and concerns of the 32nd District. Growing up her parents, Joan and Dick Horton, taught her and her sister, Jana, the values of working hard, helping others, and giving back to the community. It is because of these values that Pam has dedicated her life to public service.
Pam has over 25 years experience working in state and local government. Having worked for Mayor Jack Reardon as the City’s Arts Administrator and in Economic Development to working for Governor John Carlin as Assistant to the Governor and Director of Constituent Services.
