Hundreds Join Wolf Administration in Chester for Cabinet in Your Community Event
January 25, 2018
Chester, PA – Today, Wolf Administration cabinet officials were joined by more than 100 attendees for the third Cabinet in Your Community event held at Widener University.
“The exceptional discussion and positive energy from our first two events in Nanticoke and Lock Haven continued in Chester where many members of the community – college students, local elected officials, medical and health care professionals, and residents – came out to engage in valuable dialogue with cabinet officials,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “It’s important that we continue to engage with communities across the commonwealth so that everyone has an opportunity to feel connected to Harrisburg no matter where they live.”
Featuring Physician General and Department of Health Acting Secretary Rachel Levine, Department of Aging Secretary Teresa Osborne, Department of Transportation Secretary Leslie Richards, Department of Education Secretary Pedro Rivera, and Department of General Services Secretary Curt Topper, 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 February 1 in Lake Wallenpaupack at Wallenpaupack Area High School with cabinet secretaries from the departments of Health, Environmental Protection, Agriculture, and Aging.
