Students, Community Members Join Wolf Administration in Hawley for Cabinet in Your Community Event

Hawley, PA – Today, Wolf Administration cabinet officials were joined by 350 attendees including 100 students from Wayne and Pike Counties for the fourth Cabinet in Your Community event held at Wallenpaupack Area High School.

“The exceptional discussion and positive energy continued at today’s fourth event in Hawley,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “It’s important that we continue to have this type of valuable dialogue all across the commonwealth and that everyone has an opportunity feel connected to Harrisburg no matter where they live.”

Featuring Physician General and Department of Health Acting Secretary Rachel Levine, Department of Environmental Protection Secretary Patrick McDonnell, Department of Aging Secretary Teresa Osborne, and Department of Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding, 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 8 in Gettysburg at HACC’s Gettysburg Campus with cabinet secretaries from the departments of Transportation, Corrections, Human Services, Conservation and Natural Resources, and Community and Economic Development.
