NEW GAME COMMISSIONER WELCOMED TO BOARD

NEW GAME COMMISSIONER WELCOMED TO BOARD

Timothy S. Layton, of Somerset County, takes his place alongside colleagues.

The Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners this week extended an official welcome to its newest member.

Timothy S. Layton, of Windber, Somerset County, took his seat on the board at Monday’s working group session at the Game Commission’s headquarters in Harrisburg.

“I am excited to be here and I look forward to working with my fellow commissioners, and all Pennsylvania hunters and wildlife enthusiasts, to achieve our mutual goals.”

Layton represents Region 4, an area made up of Cambria, Somerset, Blair, Bedford, Huntingdon and Fulton counties. He replaces David Schreffler, who bid farewell to the board in June, after his eight-year term expired.

While Monday’s working group meeting was Layton’s first official appearance as part of the board, he had about a two-month lead-in to that inaugural session. Gov. Tom Corbett nominated Layton to the Board of Game Commissioners on June 17, and Layton unanimously was confirmed by the Pennsylvania Senate on June 29.

Layton also spent two days in Harrisburg in July, touring the Game Commission’s headquarters and meeting staff there.

A lifelong Pennsylvanian who has hunted and fished nearly his entire life, Layton is a U.S. Army veteran, a graduate of Greater Johnstown High School, Mount Aloysius College and the Pittsburgh Institute of Mortuary Science.

He resides in Windber with his wife Susan and their three children.

Layton is a member of Ducks Unlimited, the National Wild Turkey Federation, the U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance and the National Rifle Association.

He said he intends to bring his passion for hunting and the Pennsylvania outdoors to the board in his role as commissioner.

“Pennsylvania boasts one of the greatest hunting heritages of any state, and I want to make sure that heritage not only stays strong, but grows,” Layton said.

Hopefully, Commissioner Layton
will oppose the deer eradication
program that has devastated our
area both economically and traditionally.

I hope he is not yet another political appointed deer hater that will keep the deer disaster in place. We need hunter friendly changes. With the deer plan, and within the eco-extreme joke game commission. An overhaul is needed badly.
