Governor Nominates Acting Northumberland County Row Officers for Senate Consideration

(HARRISBURG) – Governor Tom Corbett has nominated two acting row officers in Northumberland County for consideration by the Senate, according to Senator John R. Gordner (R-27).  Governor Corbett has nominated Kevin P. Gilroy of Paxinos as Northumberland County Treasurer and Tony L. Phillips of Upper Augusta Township as Northumberland County Controller.  Both are currently serving as the acting row officers and were recommended by Senator Gordner for the Gubernatorial nominations.

Gilroy has served as acting Treasurer since last year’s resignation of Treasurer Ronald Chamberlain for health reasons.  Gilroy previously was employed in the banking industry.

Phillips, the former Deputy Controller, has served as acting Controller since the resignation earlier this year of Charles Erdman, who accepted a position with the Corbett Administration.

“I’m pleased Governor Corbett nominated Kevin and Tony for these positions.  They are both well qualified,” said Senator Gordner.

The Senate has 25 session days to act upon the nominations.
