Interim Arrangements For County Veterans

Potter County Veterans

vetaffairsPotter County Commissioners are restructuring the position of Director of Veterans Affairs. Their goal is to care for the county’s military veterans conscientiously, courteously and efficiently, while helping them to navigate through the multiple bureaucracies and making them aware of veterans’ programs, services and opportunities. The Director of Veterans Affairs is in a unique position to integrate the services provided by the county with other local, regional, statewide and national resources.

Interim arrangements are in place to deal with local veterans’ needs. Any veteran calling with general inquiries, requests or concerns has the following options:

  • Governor’s Veterans Outreach and Assistance Center, 1-800-932-0930; or gvoac@comcast.net. The center’s representative for Potter County is Jim Krobath, who holds office hours at Potter County CareerLink.
  • Carl Haneline (Carl.Haneline@va.gov), 607-664-4869, a public affairs officer from the Veterans Affairs facilities at Bath/Wellsville, N.Y., is serving as temporary liaison for Potter County veterans’ involvement with VA services.
  • Tioga County Veterans Affairs Director Tim Cleveland and Assistant Lewis Zuchowski (570-723-8141) are available to assist veterans who have questions about federal or state resources or programs.
  • Employment issues should be referred to Potter County CareerLink at (814) 274-9330.
  • Veterans who have questions or concerns are asked to consider those resources or to call the Commissioners Office at 274-8290. Potter County Today

    It's such a shame that in Potter County we have a group of "Veterans" that exploit the system and are taking away money that other Veterans deserve. I guess they will get what they deserve from a higher power

    He is "THE" Mitch Delong, if you please. Thinks the world owes him everything. Has the attitude to go with it. Wonder why the previous planning director left town? Wonder if "THE" had a role in this. I hate wind mills.

    Sad thing about these posters is I bet they don't even know Mitch. He's an excellent person. If most people contributed 10% of the time Mitch volunteers for our community we would be so much better off.
