Hall to Serve on New Governor’s Transition Team

Pennsylvania Governor-Elect Josh Shapiro and Lieutenant Governor-Elect Austin Davis named USW District 10 Director Bernie Hall to the administration’s transition team as the new leaders prepare to take office on Jan. 17.

Shapiro has assembled seven transition advisory committees, each focusing on one of the new administration’s priorities, including promoting economic growth, ensuring safe communities, and promoting high-quality education for all Pennsylvanians.

Hall, who will focus on transportation and infrastructure as part of his duties on Shapiro’s economic development committee, is among several labor leaders from across the state working on the new governor’s transition.

“Voters elected Josh Shapiro to move this state forward, and his dedication to making sure working people are a part of that progress is clear in the selections he’s made for this group,” Hall said. “I look forward to working with a diverse group of leaders from across Pennsylvania to ensure a smooth transition for our new governor, and to make sure that he and his administration can hit the ground running in January to fight for working families.”

Shapiro said that his team will help him build a strong economic future for all workers in the Keystone State, a priority he developed over the past 14 months traveling across the state.

“Wherever I went, Pennsylvanians wanted the same thing: an economy that works for everyone, good schools and a quality education for their children, and safe communities for their families,” Shapiro said. “These advisory committees will play a key role assisting the Shapiro-Davis administration get to work on day one to turn that vision into a reality.”
