–Rep. Zach Mako (R-Lehigh/Northampton) has been appointed by Speaker Mike Turzai (R-Allegheny) to the Pennsylvania Military Community Enhancement Commission for the 2019-20 Legislative Session.
The commission was put into law in 2014 with the primary mission to stay abreast of Federal Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) activities, which have a major impact on military installations and economic development in communities across the Commonwealth.
“As an active member of the Pennsylvania National Guard, I know firsthand the value and importance of our military installations,” Mako said. “Each serves as a key to keeping Pennsylvania guard members ready on a moment’s notice and supporting our federal military on a daily basis. Pennsylvania has been targeted before in prior BRAC efforts. I am committed to ensuring the federal government understands why our Commonwealth’s facilities are needed and the critical role they play.”
The 183rd District includes South Whitehall (part), Washington and Whitehall (part) townships and Slatington Borough in Lehigh County. It also consists of Allen, Lehigh and Moore (part) townships, and North Catasauqua, Northampton and Walnutport boroughs in Northampton County.
