| January 14, 2019

VENANGO COUNTY, Pa. – Albert “Chip” Abramovic is seeking re-election as Democratic Venango County Commissioner for a second term.

“A special heartfelt thank you to each resident and employee of this great County is deserved,” said Abramovic in a release issued Sunday. “It has been my honor to serve as one of your County Commissioners for the past three years. I have appreciated all your feedback and encouragement working together (to) help move this County forward.”

During Abramovic’s first term he has “worked hard to bring awareness to tough issues not commonly discussed, collaborated with the Agriculture Industry to help find ways to combat the struggles they are facing, brought awareness to drug epidemics, worked to find ways to help curb an overcrowding of county jails through re-entry and mental illness initiatives, worked hard to bring transparency to government and to hold the line on taxes, closely worked with local municipalities and other counties,” according to the release.

Abramovic currently sits on numerous local, regional, and statewide boards including: County Commissioners Association Board of Directors, is Chairman of the County Commissioners Association Academy of Excellence in County Government, University of Pittsburgh Institute of Politics Board of Fellows, Vice Chairman of Northwest Commission, Chairman of Venango County Criminal Justice Advisory Board, County Commissioners Natural Gas Task Force, Northwest PA Workforce Investment Board, WQED Pittsburgh Advisory Board Member. Abramovic also is a graduate of the County Commissioners Association Center for Excellence in County Leadership and current student of Penn State’s RULE Leadership Program.

“Being centrally located between Erie and Pittsburgh gives Venango County a great opportunity for growth, being able to utilize our natural resources and our growing local businesses. There is no better time than now,” said Abramovic in the release. “Allegheny County, a world leader in technology and healthcare, along with Erie County growing towards the future (and) having close relationships with both can help to turn Western PA from the Rust Belt to the Smart Belt and put Venango County in the forefront. An opportunity Venango County should not miss out on.”
