Merry Christmas to You and Yours!

I would like to wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season.  May you enjoy the real gifts of love, peace, and happiness during this special time.

My office hours may be limited due to the holidays. Please call ahead to be sure my offices are open. Phone numbers are listed at the bottom of this e-news.  

From L to R: Sen. Yaw; Commissioner Roger Bunn; Commissioner Erick Coolidge; Commissioner Mark Hamilton and State Rep. Clint Owlett

I have had the pleasure to know and work with retiring Tioga County Commissioners Erick Coolidge, Roger Bunn and Mark Hamilton for many years and each of them should be proud of their accomplishments and service to the County.  I wish them all the best in the next chapters of their lives!

Congratulations to Commissioner Donna Iannone on her retirement after many years of dedicated service to Sullivan County. Thank you and best of luck to you in your next chapter!

Congratulations to retiring Bradford County Commissioner, John Sullivan! Thank you for your dedicated service to Bradford County and our region. Wishing you all the best!

Sharing the Holiday Spirit with PA Veterans

If you would like to support our veterans and military families this holiday season, making a monetary donation goes a long way toward helping the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs provide members, veterans and their families with essential programs and services that would not be available otherwise.

Donations can be made by mail or online. They are tax-deductible, and gifts of any amount are appreciated. Learn more about making a donation.

PennDOT Offices Closed

PennDOT Driver License Centers will be closed on Dec. 23 and 25 for Christmas, and on Dec. 30 and Jan. 1 for New Year’s.

Customers may still obtain a variety of driver and vehicle products and services online through PennDOT’s Driver and Vehicle Services website.

Driving Safely During Inclement Weather

Pennsylvania has nearly 40,000 miles of roads – which translates to 96,000 snow-lane miles – that must be maintained during inclement weather so people can travel safely.

The approximately 2,200 PennDOT-owned and rented plow trucks have in-truck technology that logs and shares data in real time so the public can monitor the routes of their interstate and expressway travels on

Of course, drivers should avoid the roads until they have been cleared, if possible. Anyone who must travel is urged to use extra caution by slowing down, increasing their following distance and avoiding distractions. Read more winter driving tips here.
