May 07, 2018
Johnstown, PA – Today, Wolf Administration cabinet officials were joined by community members for a Cabinet in Your Community event at the University of Pittsburgh’s Johnstown campus.
“The exceptional discussion and positive energy this series has brought to Pennsylvania continued at today’s event in Johnstown,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “It’s important that we continue to have this type of valuable dialogue across the commonwealth and that everyone has an opportunity feel connected to Harrisburg no matter where they live.”
Featuring Department of Community and Economic Development Secretary Dennis Davin, Department of Transportation Secretary Leslie Richards, Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs Secretary Jennifer Smith, Department of Aging Secretary Teresa Osborne, and Department of Labor & Industry Secretary Jerry Oleksiak, the department secretaries provided region-specific updates on major projects, accomplishments, and answered impromptu questions from the audience.
The Cabinet in Your Community initiative is a series of townhall-like events in which members of the community are given the opportunity to interact with cabinet secretaries and talk about the issues important to each region.
The next Cabinet in Your Community event is currently scheduled for May 18 in Scranton at the University of Scranton with cabinet secretaries from the departments of Human Services, Labor & Industry, Aging, Drug and Alcohol Programs, and Military and Veterans Affairs.
