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.”

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING.
