'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Armstrong County Commissioner Rich Fink will serve as liaison/advocate between the County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania (CCAP) Human Service Committee and the Pennsylvania Association of County Affiliated Homes (PACAH).

Fink was selected for the post by Kelly Andrisano, executive director of Pennsylvania Association of County Human Services Administrators because of his experience in human services areas, the county announced in a press release.

This position requires working closely with Mike Wilt, director of the PACAH, giving additional comments during meetings, and providing feedback from the perspective of a county commissioner during meetings and reporting back to fellow commissioners during the CCAP Conference.

This position, held by one or two sitting commissioners, will reqiure no additional costs or travel.

These meetings will take place during CCAP conferences and during regularly scheduled Human Services Committee Meetings.

Fink said, “It is an honor to be representing CCAP. I feel my experience as a commissioner and being on the Human Services Committee will be helpful in this role.”
