Senator Pittman Appointed to PENNVEST Board


During his long tenure as Senator Don White’s Chief of Staff, Joe Pittman received extensive experience in working to secure PENNVEST financing for numerous vital water and sewer projects across the 41st Senatorial District.

Now, Senator Pittman can put that experience to work for the District and the Commonwealth as he was appointed by Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati to replace the now-retired Senator White as the Senate Republican Caucus representative on the PENNVEST Board.

“I am truly honored by this opportunity to take over Senator White’s seat on the PENNVEST Board. He was a tireless advocate for the 41st District and I will try to follow up on his legacy,” Senator Pittman said. “PENNVEST financing has been a key catalyst in promoting several major water and sewer projects in the 41st District which have boosted our local economy and created job opportunities.”

PENNVEST provides grants and low-interest loans to fund sewer, storm water and drinking water projects throughout the Commonwealth. These projects not only contribute to improving Pennsylvania’s environment and the health of its people, they also provide opportunities for economic growth and jobs for Pennsylvania’s workers.

 “This financing is important and essential to municipalities and municipal authorities across the Commonwealth. It enables small communities to build essential water and sewer systems,” Senator Pittman said. “PENNVEST helps promote infrastructure improvements that enhance a region’s attractiveness for residential and commercial development.”
