|Subject:||Designating the Bridge Carrying Route 1025 Over U. S. Route 11/15 in East Pennsboro Township, Cumberland County, as the “Senator Hal Mowery Memorial Bridge."|
In the near future, I will be introducing legislation designating the bridge carrying Route 1025 over U. S. Route 11/15 in East Pennsboro Township, Cumberland County, as the “Senator Hal Mowery Memorial Bridge."
Raised in Mechanicsburg, Senator Harold F. Mowery, Jr., was a graduate of Mechanicsburg High School and Dickinson College. Over several decades, he founded multiple successful insurance businesses that employed hundreds of Pennsylvanians.
Mr. Mowery was elected to the PA House of Representatives in 1976, serving seven terms. In 1992, he was elected to represent the 31st district in the Senate of Pennsylvania, serving until his retirement in 2004.
During and after his public service, he was a prominent community leader, supporting the establishment of the Camp Hill Lion Foundation to enhance academic, athletic and cultural resources. Senator Mowery aided many charities by sponsoring and supporting benefits, galas and community fundraisers. He was also an active supporter of the Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts.
Senator Mowery’s professional achievements, extensive community involvement and myriad of awards and accolades, stand as a strong testimony to his genuine concern for the well-being of this Commonwealth.
Please consider co-sponsoring this legislation recognizing the late Senator Harold F. Mowery, Jr.
Introduced as HB1907
