04 - 01 - 2014 Snyder Co. pushing hard to attract some of 700 new jobs
[DI] - Snyder Co. officials say they’ll lobby hard to attract some of the 700 new positions proposed under Gov. Tom Corbett’s Healthy PA plan. State Department of Public Welfare spokesman Kait Gillis confirmed yesterday that hundreds of new jobs, including caseworkers, administrative and support staff, are slated to be added statewide as part of the governor’s initiative to improve access to health care and reform Medicaid. Sources said they’ve been hearing rumors that the state is eying the Selinsgrove Center and another location in Lancaster to serve as call centers. Snyder Co. Commissioners Joe Kantz and Peggy Chamberlain Roup said they’ll do what they can to lure some of those new jobs to the area.
