Bradley T. "Brad" Roae is a Republican member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, representing the 6th legislative district, which consists of parts of Crawford County. He was first elected in 2006.
Roae attended Gannon University, graduating in 1990. He then worked a commercial underwriter for Erie Insurance. He is an EMT and a volunteer firefighter with the East Mead Volunteer Fire Department.
Following the 2005 Pennsylvania General Assembly pay raise controversy, Roae successfully challenged 15 year incumbent Teresa Forcier, who voted against, but accepted the pay raise. Roae then went on to defeat Democrat Keith Abbott in the general election. Upon taking his seat, Roae was appointed to the newly formed Speaker's Commission on Legislative Reform. He refuses to utilize the legislature's taxpayer-funded mass-mailing "newsletters" and public service announcements. He also declines to use a vehicle from the legislature's taxpayer-funded fleet, declines the $152 per diem, and does not keep the legislature's automatic annual Cost Of Living Adjustment.
