Mackereth Confirmed as DPW Secretary
June 26, 2013

Secretary Beverly Mackereth, Department of Public Welfare (DPW), was confirmed by a 50-0 vote in the Pennsylvania Senate on June 25. Mackereth served as acting secretary since the departure of former Secretary Gary Alexander in February. Mackereth has had extensive experience in public service, having served as deputy secretary for the Office of Children, Youth and Families, representing a portion of York County in the General Assembly, and as executive director of York County Human Services. Secretary Mackereth has initiated a tone within DPW of collaboration with stakeholders that had been largely absent. PCPA congratulates Secretary Mackereth on her confirmation and looks forward to working with DPW on many important initiatives.
