Scranton Times-Tribune: Scranton Mayor Paige Cognetti: Casey delivered on rail service

  • Scranton recently got one big step closer to bringing rail service to New York City for the first time in over 50 years. It’s a once-in-a-generation investment in our community that many who have lived in Scranton thought would never happen in their lifetime.
  • But there are many Scranton residents who never gave up on making this project a reality, including U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, who advocated tirelessly for this rail service for his hometown.
  • We are grateful that Scranton and Pennsylvania have Sen. Casey, one of our nation’s most effective bipartisan senators, who we can count on to deliver for us in Washington.

Morning Call: Allentown Mayor Matt Tuerk: Congressional delegation delivered for Allentown

  • As the Lehigh Valley’s economy continues its strong growth, $500,000 in recently announced federal funding is helping ensure no one in Allentown is left behind.
  • After Allentown submitted our application to take advantage of the funding, they again took action, exemplified by Sen. Casey sending a letter to Commerce Secretary Raimondo urging her department to approve our city’s application for funding.
  • This is what effective leadership looks like. The concerns of Pennsylvanians are front and center for Sen. Casey, Sen. Fetterman, and Rep. Wild and they’re delivering on them. I’m glad Pennsylvania has Congresspeople who we count on to have our backs.
