Deadline Extended: Governor's Office Seeks Candidates To Fill Vacancy On Fish & Boat Commission Board

The Governor’s Advisory Council for Hunting, Fishing and Conservation Friday announced it has extended the deadline for applications for candidates to fill an upcoming vacancy on the board of the Fish and Boat Commission from the Fourth District, which includes Bedford, Blair, Cambria, Fulton, Huntingdon, Juniata, Mifflin and Somerset counties.

The deadline is now January 5 to send in resumes and cover letters.

The district has been represented with distinction by Leonard L. Lichvar, of Boswell, Somerset County, since December 16, 2009.

“The Governor is reaching out to the anglers and boaters of central Pennsylvania to find a diverse group of qualified applicants, one of which will fill this vacancy,” said Robb Miller, director of the advisory council.  “We’re encouraging anyone interested in volunteering on the board to send us a letter that describes their qualifications and experience, along with a copy of their professional resume.”

Per the Fish and Boat Code, to qualify as a commissioner, the applicant must be a resident of the district and be well informed on the subjects of conservation, restoration, fishing, and boating.

The term of service is four years and members may serve three consecutive terms upon being nominated by the Governor and confirmed by a majority of the members of the Pennsylvania Senate.

While commissioners are not compensated, they do receive travel reimbursement.

Individuals interested in applying for this seat should send their materials to Robb Miller, 400 Market Street, 7th Floor, Harrisburg, PA 17101-2301. Individuals can also email the information to Robb Miller at:  robmille@pa.gov.
