PSEA-Retired member attends Gov. Wolf's Inaugural Celebration
For Sally Oliver, a retired educator from Central-Western Region, a contribution to PSEA-PACE, PSEA's Political Action Committee for Education, sent her to Gov. Tom Wolf's inaugural celebration.
As one of the campaign's top contributors, she received tickets to the celebration. During the evening's festivities, she had a chance to meet Gov. Wolf and congratulate him on becoming Pennsylvania's governor.
"The highlight of the evening for me was when Gov. Wolf made his entrance with the York YWCA Temple Guard Drill Team, state legislators, cabinet members, and his family. Gov. Wolf shook my hand with a friendly smile. I was honored to be in attendance and look forward to a fresh start for Pennsylvania."
Oliver was one of more than 750 PSEA members who contributed to a special PSEA-PACE campaign to Turn the Page on Tom Corbett last fall.
"I got involved because we need a governor who is a friend of education, one who understands that public education matters," said Oliver. "The profession I loved suffered a lot of damage over the past four years. We need a more reasonable governor who wants to work with all of the Pennsylvania stakeholders.
"I wish Gov. Wolf luck and success as he begins his term. I am happy that I had a small part in getting him elected, and I look forward to the many great things he can accomplish while in office."
In addition to contributing to PSEA-PACE and being a dedicated advocate for public education issues, Oliver serves as the treasurer for Central-Western Region PSEA-Retired.
"I enjoy being involved and staying connected with other retirees and the profession that was a big part of my life. PSEA-Retired membership offers a wealth of programs, activities, and benefits for retired educators."
