Wolf Administration Connects with Community Members in Pittsburgh during Cabinet in Your Community Event
June 13, 2018
Pittsburgh, PA – Today, Wolf Administration cabinet officials were joined by nearly 100 attendees for a Cabinet in Your Community event at the University of Pittsburgh.
“This series is a great opportunity for communities to engage with their state government and learn about the commonwealth’s investments in their region,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “Last week marked our 20th event in this series, and my administration will continue to hear from residents, college students, local elected officials, veterans, and more through this positive two-way dialogue between communities across the commonwealth and their state officials.”
Featuring Department of Community and Economic Development Secretary Dennis Davin, Department of Education Secretary Pedro Rivera, Department of Health Secretary Dr. Rachel Levine, and Department of Corrections Secretary John Wetzel, the department heads provided updates on major projects and accomplishments in Pittsburgh and answered 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 their region.
The next Cabinet in Your Community event is currently scheduled for June 19 in Indiana at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania with cabinet secretaries from the departments of Conservation and Natural Resources, Transportation, Aging, and Labor & Industry.
