Wolf Administration Announces Cabinet in Your Community Initiative
November 17, 2017
Harrisburg, PA – Today, the Wolf Administration announced the launch of Cabinet in Your Community, a new initiative to provide a platform for engagement between cabinet secretaries and local communities throughout Pennsylvania.
“It is important for the state to hear from communities in every part of the commonwealth to learn how we can support them and allow everyone to feel connected to Harrisburg,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “We are working hard to visit every corner of the commonwealth and I look forward to obtaining feedback from members of my cabinet on the issues important to each community.”
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 secretaries will provide region specific updates on major projects, accomplishments, and answer questions from the audience.
The first event is scheduled for Tuesday, November 21 at Luzerne County Community College and will feature Department of Community and Economic Development Secretary Dennis Davin, Department of Education Secretary Pedro Rivera, and Department of Labor and Industry Acting Secretary W. Gerard “Jerry” Oleksiak.
The administration will host a series of these events over the subsequent few months, with the next currently scheduled for December 13 in Lock Haven and will include secretaries and acting secretaries from the Department of Community and Economic Development, Agriculture, Revenue, Labor and Industry, Transportation, and State.
