Merski elected treasurer of Northwest Delegation

HARRISBURG, Jan. 16 – State Rep. Bob Merski will be taking on a leadership role as he starts his first term in the House: Merski announced today that he has been elected treasurer of the House Democratic Northwest Delegation.

“I’m honored and excited to be a part of the group’s leadership,” Merski said. “The delegation is key to providing a unified voice on the issues that matter to our region’s working families. It’s a way for us to join forces as legislators and bring attention to goals, interests and challenges that are shared by families throughout our area of the state. Collective voices speak louder, and being a part of that effort is a terrific opportunity.”

Merski added that he is looking forward to strategizing with other members of the Northwest leadership team, including chairman Rep. Frank Burns of Cambria County; vice chairman Rep. Ryan Bizzarro of Erie County; and secretary Rep. Pat Harkins, also of Erie County.
