Corman Statement on Scarnati not seeking re-election

Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman (R-34) issued the following statement in response to Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati’s (R-25) announcement that he will not seek re-election:

“We have been fortunate to have Joe’s steady hand at the helm of the Senate, providing critical leadership under circumstances that often were far from perfect.  Joe has set an example for all of us with his unmatched ability to build consensus, encourage civility and ensure common sense would prevail.

“His record speaks for itself and his honesty and sincerity is well known to those of us who have served with him. I am confident Joe will channel those qualities into his next path in life. Until then, I look forward to all that we can accomplish as we finish this session under his guidance. He will be missed.”
