HARRISBURG, Pa. – York College President Dr. Pamela Gunter-Smith, is 17 executive nominations Governor Wolf sent to the Pa State Senate for consideration.  Dr. Gunter-Smith is named for a seat the State Board of Education.  She is one of five people from the area on the nominations list.

Of the 17 nominations, 12 are being submitted following the governor’s recall of 25 nominations earlier this year and 5 nominations are to fill vacant seats. The Governor is hoping to reach a compromise with the GOP dominated senate on his nominations.

Governor Wolf: “Today, I presented 17 executive nominations to the State Senate for consideration and I look forward to the quick advancement of these qualified candidates.

“Earlier this year, I recalled 25 executive nominations after the previous governor made the nominations on his way out the door.

“Senator Corman and I worked together on a compromise to ensure that we advanced highly qualified candidates to fill these positions. After conversations with Senator Corman, we agreed that 13 nominations recommended by the Senate would proceed and I would submit 12 nominations of my choosing.

“This was a fair process, and I appreciate Senator Corman’s willingness to work together to achieve a compromise.”
