Capitol Update
Friday, March 31, 2017 The latest news from the State Capitol
I enjoyed the opportunity to talk with members of Leadership Potter County earlier this week. Chuck Dillon of Sen. Joe Scarnati’s office, Mike Glazer of Congressman Glenn Thompson’s office and I took questions on a variety of topics, including the divide between urban and rural in the state, advocating for constituents, education opportunities in the area, my EMS legislation and more. This was an impressive group of men and women, and I hope they will take what they are learning in this class and remain active members of our communities!
Outreach Hours Set for April 6

To help ensure access to state government information and services, I will hold outreach office hours at the following locations on Thursday, April 6:
  • Emporium Borough Office – 9-10 a.m.
  • Port Allegany Borough Office – 11 a.m. to noon.
Services available include assistance with any state-related issues or concerns, driver license and vehicle registration applications, and applications for various state programs, such as the senior citizen Property Tax/Rent Rebate and PACE/PACENET prescription drug assistance programs.

As always, you are welcome to stop by my offices in Bradford (78 Main St., first floor), Coudersport (107 S. Main St., Room 1) or Kane (55 Fraley St.) Monday through Friday, or visit my website at or my Facebook page at for the latest news from state government.

Water Service Grants Awarded for Driftwood, Smethport
The Commonwealth Financing Authority has approved two grants for public water projects in the area. I was pleased to support these important investments in our communities.

Driftwood Borough was awarded a grant of $203,965 to create a new groundwater source of potable water by reconstructing the filter plant well in Nanny Run to meet public water supply standards. The project will also include new filtering sand for the existing three filter beds located at the slow sand filtration plant.

The Borough of Smethport Authority was awarded a grant of $100,000 toward relocation and replacement of two cast iron water lines that are contributing to poor water quality for customers at the extreme end of the system along Route 59 in Keating Township.

Career Fair for Potter County Juniors, Seniors

Local and regional businesses, industries and employers of all sizes are invited to meet with local juniors and seniors about job opportunities. They need not have current job openings to participate, just a willingness to help educate youth about potential local careers.
