Lt. Gov. Stack, Reps. McNeill, Schlossberg, and Schweyer to Host Pathways to Pardons

Lieutenant Governor Mike Stack and local state Reps. Jeanne MCNeill, Mike Schlossberg, and Pete Schweyer will host a community event April 26 in Allentown to explain the process for obtaining a pardon or expungement of a past criminal conviction in Pennsylvania.

Stack, who chairs the Pennsylvania Board of Pardons, created the Pathways to Pardons program to bring together experts in corrections, drug and alcohol treatment, probation and parole, and public interest law to give step-by-step help to people who want to remove barriers to employment by clearing a minor criminal conviction from their records.

The Pathways to Pardons program has been hailed as a national model by the National Alliance for Model State Drug Laws for its effect in dealing with the opiod crisis. More than 50 Pathways to Pardons events have been held across Pennsylvania.

The parking garage across the street from the event will be free for attendees.
