Governor Wolf Submits 12 Executive Nominations to Senate

May 07, 2015

Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today sent 17 executive nominations to the Pennsylvania State Senate for consideration. Of the 17 nominations, 12 are being submitted following the governor’s recall of 25 nominations earlier this year and 5 nominations are to fill vacant seats. Following is a statement from Governor Wolf:

“Today, I presented 17 executive nominations to the State Senate for consideration and I look forward to the quick advancement of these qualified candidates.

“Earlier this year, I recalled 25 executive nominations after the previous governor made the nominations on his way out the door.

“Senator Corman and I worked together on a compromise to ensure that we advanced highly qualified candidates to fill these positions. After conversations with Senator Corman, we agreed that 13 nominations recommended by the Senate would proceed and I would submit 12 nominations of my choosing.

“This was a fair process, and I appreciate Senator Corman’s willingness to work together to achieve a compromise.”
