Askey named to statewide commission

Voice: September 2018

PSEA Vice President Rich Askey has been appointed to Gov. Tom Wolf’s newly created Commission on LGBTQ Affairs.

“It is an honor to be selected by the governor to serve on this commission, and to help work toward removing disadvantages some people face because of their sexual orientation or gender identity,’’ Askey said.

Wolf created the 40-member commission, which is the first of its kind in the nation, with an executive order in August to “help coordinate and drive statewide equality efforts.’’

The governor noted the commission was suggested by LGBTQ stakeholder and advocacy groups.
