Governor Nominates Mackereth as DPW Secretary
April 30, 2013

Governor Corbett has nominated Beverly Mackereth as secretary of the Department of Public Welfare (DPW).  Mackereth has been serving as acting secretary since the departure of Secretary Gary Alexander. Mackereth previously served as deputy secretary for the Office of Children, Youth and Families and was formerly a York County representative in the General Assembly and executive director of York County Human Services. The appointment will become effective once the Senate Public Health and Welfare Committee holds a hearing and the full Senate confirms the appointment. PCPA congratulates Ms. Mackereth on her nomination and looks forward to working with her to strengthen the human services system in Pennsylvania.
