More Than 200 Attendees Join Wolf Administration in Nanticoke for First Cabinet in Your Community Event

Town-hall style event first in statewide series of regional initiative updates

Harrisburg, PA – Today, Wolf Administration cabinet officials were joined by more than 200 attendees for the first Cabinet in Your Community event held at Luzerne County Community College.

“I am excited that so many members of the community came out to hear from and ask questions of our cabinet officials today,” 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 Department of Community and Economic Development Secretary Dennis Davin, Department of Education Secretary Pedro Rivera, and Department of Labor and Industry Acting Secretary Jerry Oleksiak, 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 December 13 in Lock Haven and will include secretaries and acting secretaries from the departments of Community and Economic Development, Agriculture, Revenue, Labor and Industry, Transportation, and State.
