Pennsylvania Growing Greener Coalition Applauds Governor-elect
Wolf’s Selection of Agency Leaders
(HARRISBURG, PA) The Pennsylvania Growing Greener Coalition — the largest coalition of conservation, recreation, and preservation organizations in the Commonwealth — today applauded Governor-elect Tom Wolf’s choices for the leadership jobs in the state’s environmental, conservation, and agriculture agencies. Governor-elect Wolf recently announced the appointments of Cindy Dunn to head the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Russell Redding to lead the Department of Agriculture, and John Quigley to head the Department of Environmental Protection.
“These are excellent selections,” said Andrew Heath, executive director of the Pennsylvania Growing Greener Coalition. “With decades of experience collectively, these three individuals will apply their experience and skills to the challenges facing the Commonwealth over the next four years. The Coalition looks forward to working with these state agency leaders in tackling the challenges head on.”
On January 20th, Tom Wolf will be inaugurated as the 47th governor of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Numerous celebratory events are scheduled throughout the day across Central Pennsylvania.
“This is a time to honor the service of Governor Tom Corbett and to respect the transition to new leadership under Governor-elect Wolf,” Heath said. “As we celebrate our democratic system and pass the baton from one leader to another, this day deserves to be respected and honored.
“The next four years will be critical to the future of the Commonwealth and the Coalition looks forward to working with the Wolf Administration on addressing the conservation, recreation, and preservation funding needs facing the state. There is much work to be done, and the Coalition is prepared to get started on day one.”
