On Oct. 20, the Susquehanna County Township Supervisors Association held their 109th annual meeting at the Montrose Bible Conference. Speakers included Sen. Gene Yaw; Sen. Lisa Baker; Rep. Tina Pickett; Rep. Jonathan Fritz; the county commissioners, and Joe Gerdes from from the state’s County Association of Township Officials (PSATS).
The purpose of the annual convention was to provide township officials with up-to-date information to help them better serve their constituents and give them an opportunity to exchange ideas on local government issues.
Sen. Yaw and Rep. Pickett were honored with plaques recognizing their years of service to Susquehanna County, as legislative redistricting will move both of them out of the county as of Dec. 1.
“That does not mean that I will lose contact with the many friends I have made there over the years,” Yaw told those in attendance, “Susquehanna County will always be a special place for me and certainly will be in good hands with my colleague, Senator Lisa Baker. I won’t say ‘Goodbye’[ only that I will ‘See You Around.’”
Pickett had a similar message for those in attendance, expressing her gratitude for the recognition and saying, “Susquehanna County has much family history for me. I remember the pancake dinners at the South Auburn Grange where my parents and grandparents were longstanding members. I will always remain a ‘legislative friend of Susquehanna County.’”
