Governor Shapiro’s Office has launched a new phone number, which will allow him and his Administration to communicate directly with Pennsylvanians on important updates and hear from them on issues impacting them and their families. This communication is made possible through Community, an SMS engagement platform that connects elected officials, businesses, public figures, and sports teams to their audiences through unique 10-digit phone numbers.
Why is the Governor launching this number?
Governor Shapiro fundamentally believes there should be no wrong door to access government, whether you are calling an office, walking into a government building, or (now!) sending a text. The Governor has made meeting Pennsylvanians where they are a key aspect of his Administration — from connecting with Pennsylvanians everyday on social media to engaging content creators around important events and updates.
