Thank you to PHCA for inviting me to speak at their 2024 Legislative Conference. Last week, the #PASenate advanced two bipartisan bills to update training procedures and remove employment barriers so more people can join the long-term care workforce.
 
In addition to keeping state spending in check, the final state budget enacted last year included critical support for EMS, hospitals and nursing homes. As our work continues on the 2024-2025 state budget, support for Pennsylvania’s most vulnerable older residents will remain an area of focus. Thank you to the advocates who came to Harrisburg to share the importance of long-term care across the Commonwealth.
 
Pennsylvania’s fastest growing demographic is adults aged 80 and older and by working together we can help to increase access to quality care throughout our communities!

Please join me in welcoming Abbie Huey as an intern in my Indiana district office! This week she came to Harrisburg to gain a better understanding of the legislative process and experience the Senate in session. Abbie’s future aspirations include working in government and potentially attending law school after she finishes college.

Abbie is a graduate of Indiana Area Senior High School and has been actively involved in her community, as a waitress, team captain, and volunteer at the Chevy Chase Community Center. She recently completed her freshmen year at Georgetown University where she is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in government, is a member of the Georgetown Track and Field team and has proven herself to be an accomplished sprinter, receiving all-conference honors.

Abbie is a great addition to our team, and we look forward to the contributions she will make in helping to serve constituents this summer!

It was a great honor to be invited to serve as the keynote speaker for Applewold Borough’s 125th Anniversary celebration on Saturday! I enjoyed taking part in the parade through town and presenting Mayor Gretchen Dosch with a Senate citation recognizing this momentous occasion. 

The Borough of Applewold was founded by the Applewold Land Company and was initially settled by industrialists and merchants from across Armstrong County. Throughout it’s rich history, the Borough has been blessed with dedicated civic leaders who have helped it to grow and flourish. Best wishes for another 125 years and thank you for having me!

Meet Joe Pittman

I have called Indiana County home all my life and live there with my wife, Gina (DiMaio), and our four children: Joe Jr., Sam, Rosie and Frannie. I am thankful to my parents, John and Mary Ann (Yevchak), for instilling in me the values of God, family and country, and teaching me the importance of community service. It is an honor to serve the 41st Senatorial District and I’m proud to work with my colleagues to strengthen our commonwealth by protecting jobs, empowering families and defending our freedoms.
