Letter from Mr. Blackwell

To All,

I would like to let everyone know that I have decided it best to retire from my position as PSCOA President and from the DOC.  I believe this will take some of the bad publicity away from the current situation. I am innocent of the allegation that have been made against me. I will continue to fight this allegation and I have confidence in our legal system that it will be resolved quickly.  I have had a great career in representing the H-1 unit and appreciate all of the support I have received over the years. I wish you all the best in the future.

Larry Blackwell

Dear Brothers and Sisters:

Today, President Blackwell has provided notice of his intent to retire from Commonwealth employment effective this date. His separation from employment carries with it a functional resignation from his position as President of the PSCOA.

Article VI section (1)K of the PSCOA Constitution states, “When for any reason, a vacancy occurs during a term of office among the officers or the Executive Board members of the Association, the Executive Board shall, as soon as may be practicable, but not more than sixty (60) days from the time of the vacancy occurs, appoint a member qualified to serve to fill such vacancy for the remaining term of office.”

Until the Executive Board of the PSCOA can carry out the above-noted duties, Executive Vice President Hank McNair will assume the day to day responsibilities of President. Also, to be clear: The PSCOA does not provide financial assistance of any kind related to personal matters.

Once again, we want to assure the H-1 membership that the critical work that is expected of the PSCOA will continue and all H-1 issues that are pending or will arise in the future will be handled accordingly. Please, if you have any questions or concerns, call or email. 

Hank McNair (570) 328-2643 hmcnair@pscoa.org

John Eckenrode (814) 935-7646 jeckenrode@pscoa.org

Mark Truszkowski (570) 760-1407 mtruszkowski@pscoa.org
