Bradford County Officials Honored for Public Service

On Friday, Dec. 20th, I joined Bradford County residents, county employees and officials to honor three long-time public servants, Shirley Rockerfeller, District Attorney Daniel Barrett Esq. and Treasurer Rebecca Clark, who are retiring at the end of the year. Each of these individuals have served the people of Bradford County with honor and integrity.
