This morning, the Senate Judiciary Committee considered nominations for the Pennsylvania Parole Board. Please join me in congratulating constituent, Martin Pane, for his successful advancement through the appointment process. 

I was pleased to speak during committee in support of Martin’s professionalism, extensive experience, and admirable qualifications to this important appointed position. 

Through his work, Martin has had a highly distinguished career in law enforcement beginning in 1988 as a US Deputy Marshall working his way up to a United States Marshal in 2011. Under his leadership, the Middle District of Pennsylvania received the US Marshal Service Distinguished District, the highest service award.

Martin received a well-deserved unanimous favorable recommendation by the Senate Judiciary Committee. His nomination now moves to the full Senate for consideration.

Meet Rosemary Brown

Northeast Pennsylvania has been my home since I was five; my husband, Joe and I, have raised our three children here and are grateful to live in the beautiful Pocono Mountains to enjoy the unique opportunities this portion of our state has to offer.

The foundation of my life has always been centered around God, my family, and doing my best each day. While I never promise perfection, I do promise hard work and care for our community with an extremely grateful spirit. This is how I truly try to live my life, but it also makes me a better public servant for you.
