Two vacancies on the Pennsylvania Board of Game Commissioners, for District 4 and District 5, were filled recently. Haley J. Sankey, of Tyrone, Blair County, and Allen J. Di Marco, of Allenwood, Lycoming County were appointed to serve.
Sankey was selected to represent District 4, which includes Bedford, Blair, Cambria, Fulton, Huntingdon and Somerset counties.
Di Marco was selected to represent District 5, which includes Bradford, Columbia, Lycoming, Montour, Northumberland, Sullivan, Tioga and Union counties.
Commissioners are selected from eight geographic areas to provide representation throughout Pennsylvania. Sankey and Di Marco were appointed on Dec. 15. Each will serve four-year terms.
With the new appointments, seven of the eight seats on the Board of Commissioners are filled. But the initial four-year terms of District 6 Commissioner Mitrick and District 7 Commissioner Knick have already expired, and both commissioners are remaining on the board through six-month extensions that are set to expire prior to the board’s next scheduled meeting on Jan. 28 and 29. Further action must take place for the board to have a quorum to conduct official business in January.
