May 24, 2018

SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. - Slippery Rock University will host members of Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf's cabinet for a town hall-like discussion at 1 p.m., June 4, at the Advanced Technology and Science Hall Auditorium.

The two-hour event is part of a series called "Cabinet in Your Community," launched by the Wolf Administration last fall to provide a platform for engagement between cabinet secretaries and communities throughout Pennsylvania. The secretaries will provide region-specific updates on major projects, accomplishments and answer questions from the audience.

Scheduled to serve on the June 4 panel are Jessica Altman, insurance commissioner; Cindy Dunn, secretary of conservation and natural resources; Richard Flinn, director of the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency; and Russell Redding, secretary of agriculture."We're honored that the Governor's Office selected SRU as the setting to reach out to the communities we serve," said Philip Way, SRU interim president. "This valuable dialogue between government leaders and members of the community is a great opportunity to improve the commonwealth and we're happy to facilitate the discussion."

"It is important for the state to hear from communities in every part of the commonwealth to learn how we can support them and allow everyone to feel connected to Harrisburg," said Gov. Tom Wolf in a statement prepared when the Cabinet in Your Community series was announced last fall. "We are working hard to visit every corner of the commonwealth and I look forward to obtaining feedback from members of my cabinet on the issues important to each community."
