Mario Scavello is a member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives representing the 176th Legislative District of Pennsylvania. He is currently a member of the House Appropriations, Ethics, Finance, Professional Licensure, and Tourism and Recreational Development Committees.


Prior to his election to the House, Scavello was the mayor of Mount Pocono, Pennsylvania and former chairman of the Monroe County Board of Commissioners.

Scavello was first elected in a special election held April 23, 2002 to replace Chris Wogan, who was elected to serve on the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas. The combination of Wogan's resignation and statewide redistricting eliminated the Philadelphia district and triggered a special election for the new district in Monroe County.[1] Scavello defeated Democrat Joseph Battisto with over 60% of the vote to take the seat.[2] He was elected to a full term in the 2004 general election and has been re-elected to each succeeding session of the House.


Scavello is a graduate of Theodore Roosevelt High School in the Bronx, New York and attended the City University of New York. He personally identifies as a conservative Republican.

He lives in Mount Pocono with his wife Mary Ann, and has two grown daughters. In his free time, Scavello volunteers with many community groups.
