Statement of Senator Tom Killion on the Retirement of Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati

“It is with much regret I learned of Senator Joe Scarnati’s plans to forgo re-election and retire from the Senate of Pennsylvania at the end of his current term. Joe leads the Senate with great wisdom, considerable skill and has earned the enduring respect of his colleagues from both sides of the aisle by fostering collegiality and consensus without compromising his core principles.

“Senator Scarnati will be greatly missed by me and the Senate, an institution he deeply loves. The Senate and Pennsylvania have benefitted tremendously from the service of Joe Scarnati, and my fellow senators and Pennsylvanians owe him our gratitude.”
