Bizzarro, Harkins, Merski: $120,000 grant to promote school-business partnerships, real-world learning for students

(Jan 16, 2020)

ERIE, Jan. 16 – A state grant of $120,000 will bolster career readiness for Erie students and improve the pool of talented job candidates for area businesses, state Reps. Ryan Bizzarro, Pat Harkins and Bob Merski, all D-Erie, announced today. The grant from the state Department of Labor and Industry will fund the Northwest Workforce Development Board’s “Student in the Workforce” project – designed to bring students from Erie and several other counties into the workplace for real-world experiences with high-demand jobs. “The funding announced today allows us to build incredibly valuable connections between our schools and area businesses,” Bizzarro said. “Giving students a chance to interact with area employers in real-world settings can provide once-in-a-lifetime opportunities and open new doors to career pathways. It prepares students to hit the ground running when they venture out into the working world.” Harkins agreed, noting, “A connection between the classroom and the workplace is invaluable – particularly for students from lower-income households, who might not otherwise have an opportunity to develop these connections. It’s a way to level the playing field and ensure that all students have a meaningful chance to compete for high-demand, good-paying jobs.” “Experiential learning is the most effective tool for educating our young people,” Merski added. “When Read more

 

Harkins, Merski: ‘Teacher in the Workplace’ grant to boost career readiness for Erie students

(Jan 06, 2020)

ERIE, Jan. 6 – A $25,000 grant will allow Erie teachers to visit area employers for an in-person look at the latest skills demanded by area employers, state Reps. Pat Harkins and Bob Merski, both D-Erie, announced today. The funding to the Erie City School District is part of a $2.2 million package of competitive grants from the state Department of Education providing 92 local education agencies $25,000 each to fund teacher visits. “Even the best teachers need to step out of the classroom sometimes to refresh their knowledge of what skills are needed in the modern world so they can shape the curriculum accordingly,” Merski said. “Nowhere is this more important than when it comes to teaching the foundational skills that will help our next generation get good-paying, family-sustaining jobs.” Harkins agreed, noting, “This funding provides teachers with an essential look into modern job settings so they can carry that information back to the classroom. It also helps our regional workforce remain competitive by ensuring employers have a large pool of well-trained job candidates.” The PDE grants are funded through federal money made available through Title II, Part A, of the Every Student Succeeds Act. Eligible applicants include local education entities, businesses and chambers of commerce, labor organizations, postsecondary institutions, community-based organizations, public libraries, Read more

 

Bizzarro, Harkins, Merski offer support to Erie Coke employees

(Dec 19, 2019)

ERIE, Dec. 19 – Reacting to news that Erie Coke permanently closed its doors today, state Reps. Ryan Bizzarro, Pat Harkins and Bob Merski, all D-Erie, are advising workers who were turned away from the plant this morning that their offices can provide important support and services. “This is why our offices are here – to support our community in difficult times when the future is uncertain,” Bizzarro said. “The workers who showed up this morning and were turned away through no fault of their own deserve the best support we can offer, and we don’t plan to let them down.” Harkins agreed, saying, “Our hearts are with the employees who were caught off guard this morning, a week before Christmas, when they showed up at Erie Coke, only to be told that their services are no longer needed. It’s important for people to know that our offices can provide valuable assistance – from helping people find new job opportunities to assisting them in filing unemployment insurance claims or applying for children’s health insurance.” Merski added that these resources are available down the line, as well. “Although residents may not need these resources immediately, we want everyone to know that we are prepared to help at any time in the future,” he said. “Whether it’s now or down the line, we want people to know that we will be there to support them with state Read more

Bizzarro, Harkins, Merski: More than $420,000 in tax credits to fund regional food bank

(Dec 18, 2019)

ERIE, Dec. 18 – Tax credits of $420,563 under the state Neighborhood Assistance Program will boost the efforts of Erie-based Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest Pennsylvania to alleviate food insecurity throughout the region, state Reps. Ryan Bizzarro, Pat Harkins and Bob Merski, all D-Erie, announced today. “Second Harvest has been playing a huge role in addressing hunger in our region for more than three decades,” Bizzarro said. “Keeping their operations running strong is essential because the issue of food insecurity undergirds so many critical life issues, from staving off sickness and disease to enabling parents to provide for their children. “No family should ever have to choose between keeping food on the table and affording other essentials, such as housing, utilities or medications. Securing this help is going to help eliminate those devastating choices for families.” Harkins agreed, adding, “Widescale food distribution by organizations such as Second Harvest is more complicated than many people realize. From cultivating partnerships and securing donations from retailers, restaurants, growers, packers and government agencies to coordinating the distribution of food to area pantries and shelters, it’s a complex operation. I’m thankful that this help will help keep this vital regional provider running strong.” Merski said that he was especially glad that the funding Read more

 

Bizzarro, Harkins, Merski encourage Erie residents, businesses to apply for low-interest disaster loans

(Dec 12, 2019)

ERIE, Dec. 12 – State Reps. Ryan Bizzarro, Pat Harkins and Bob Merski, all D-Erie, are urging residents and business owners who suffered property damage from area storms Oct. 31-Nov. 1 to apply for a low-interest Small Business Association loan. Federal assistance from the SBA’s Disaster Loan Program is now available after the agency approved Gov. Tom Wolf’s request to declare a disaster based on the severe storms, high winds and flooding that damaged numerous buildings and businesses. “Unexpected storm damage can wreak havoc with residents’ lives and cause interruptions that impact a small business’s bottom line,” Bizzarro said. “I strongly encourage residents and business owners who suffered property damage from these storms to take advantage of this program, which can provide access to critical resources for rebuilding – especially when that damage is not covered by insurance.” Harkins agreed, saying, “Homeowners may borrow up to $200,000, and owners and renters may be eligible for up to $40,000, to repair or replace personal property. In addition, businesses and nonprofits that suffered damage to their buildings, equipment or inventory can apply for up to $2 million in assistance. This is funding that can help residents put their affairs back in order and help businesses get back on their feet.” Merski added that the SBA will be establishing a help center at the North Read more

 

Bizzarro, Harkins, Merski: Nearly $461,000 to strengthen protection and advocacy for victims of child abuse

(Dec 11, 2019)

ERIE, Dec. 11 – Grants totaling $460,735 will expand protection and advocacy services for children throughout Pennsylvania and enhance those supports and services for Erie-area children and families, state Reps. Ryan Bizzarro, Pat Harkins and Bob Merski, all D-Erie, announced today. The funding – administered by the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency – includes $400,000 to an Erie-based organization that trains support professionals on best practices and adherence to national standards in investigating and treating child abuse. “We’ve worked hard to secure this funding, which will allow us to broaden the reach of child protection and advocacy services throughout Pennsylvania – especially to unserved and underserved areas,” Bizzarro said. “I saw the effects of abuse while working as a witness coordinator and victims’ advocate, and I know how important access to those services can be. They need to be available to all children, regardless of where they live.” Harkins added that some of the funding will go to promote best practices in the Erie region. “Investigating and prosecuting abuse can place huge stresses on children who have already suffered unthinkable trauma,” Harkins said. “This funding will help ensure that children have a safe, supportive environment for evaluation and counseling and that professionals are trained on Read more

 

‘Telepresence’ grant of nearly $18,000 will bring classroom to home for Erie students unable to attend school

(Dec 11, 2019)

ERIE, Dec. 11 – A $ 17,894 state grant will give Erie students who are unable to be present in the classroom a chance to participate in real time from home, state Reps. Pat Harkins and Bob Merski, both D-Erie, announced today. The grant from the state Department of Education will fund telepresence systems – equipment that provides nearly life-like, interactive audio and video between class and a student’s home. “In the past, students with serious illnesses or other conditions that kept them out of the classroom simply missed that time, often with lasting consequences to their academic records,” Harkins said. “Those absences also created an extra burden on teachers to develop additional assignments and lesson plans. Access to this technology will be a game changer for these students and their teachers.” Merski agreed, saying, “Learning is a dynamic process that goes well beyond the curriculum. It involves interacting with the teacher and peers and the chance to actively participate in the lesson. It means inclusion. I know based on my years teaching how important this is, and I’m so glad we’ll be able to make this technology available to students in our community.” The funding is part of a $300,000 package of Keystone Telepresence grants to educational service agencies across the state, which will purchase the equipment and lend it out to school districts.

Erie lawmakers urge MLB not to cut ties to SeaWolves

(Dec 05, 2019)

ERIE, Dec. 5 – Erie lawmakers are fighting a possible move by Major League Baseball to sever ties with the city’s popular minor league franchise, the SeaWolves. The team was listed among 42 clubs that could lose their MLB affiliation as part of a proposed reorganization in 2021. In a letter to MLB Commissioner Robert D. Manfred Jr. and Deputy Commissioner Dan Halem , state Reps. Pat Harkins, Bob Merski, Ryan Bizzarro, all D-Erie, and state Rep. Curt Sonney, R-Erie, urged the officials to reconsider a move that they say will permanently injure the region. “Our community’s 25-year ties to the SeaWolves run deep, and so does our commitment to preserving this incredibly popular Double-A list team,” said Harkins, who cited the city’s recent multimillion-dollar investment in a project to renovate UPMC Park. “We want Major League Baseball to understand what’s at stake for our region in cutting those ties, from losing a key source of jobs and revenue to ending an affordable, well-loved form of entertainment that keeps younger generations in our area interested in baseball.” Merski said he agreed, noting, “There are 42 teams on the MLB’s proposed cut list. Only a handful are AA-list teams like the SeaWolves, and very few have newly renovated, multimillion-dollar stadiums. This is the wrong move by the MLB, and we plan to make sure they recognize that now, Read more

 

Harkins joins fellow lawmakers, union leaders at Capitol to advocate for stronger worker safety protections

(Nov 19, 2019)

ERIE, Nov. 19 – Fighting to secure basic safety protections for Pennsylvania’s public employees, state Rep. Pat Harkins, D-Erie, joined fellow lawmakers today for a news conference at the state Capitol in support of a “Bill of Rights” package to strengthen workers’ rights. Harkins, who is Democratic chair of the House Labor and Industry Committee, has been advocating for stronger workplace safety protections since taking office in 2007 and is especially concerned about a critical gap in protection for the state’s public employees. “Although I’m proud to stand with my colleagues today in support of workers’ rights as we push for this package of bills to protect workers, I’m also frustrated that Pennsylvania’s public employees are still lacking critical safety protections,” Harkins said. “For years, I have been fighting to pass the Jake Schwab Worker Safety Bill , which would give public employee the same protections as private employees,” Harkins said. “Those protections don’t exist for workers like Jake, the transit authority mechanic who died because his workplace wasn’t required to conduct basic inspections. Workers like Jake are still dying – all because Pennsylvania doesn’t have a worker safety plan to protect them. “So many other states have already adopted these Read more

 

Harkins, Merski: More than $1.5 million in tax credits to strengthen education, address blight, assist working families and crime victims

(Nov 15, 2019)

ERIE, Nov. 15 – Tax credits totaling about $1.51 million approved through the Neighborhood Assistance Program will benefit numerous community redevelopment projects in the First and Second Legislative Districts, state Reps. Pat Harkins and Bob Merski, both D-Erie, announced today. “These tax credits are going to fund projects that address real-world needs for low-income residents by improving access to health care, expanding resources for crime victims and addressing blighted, vacant properties, among other things,” Harkins said. “New programs funded by these grants will help transform the landscape -- and peoples’ lives.” Merski agreed, noting, “In addition to improving life for working families, these tax credits will be used to renovate school facilities, fund academic programs and bring the arts and culture to our residents. Research shows creative programs in the arts improve students’ critical thinking and other skills needed to succeed. It will be truly exciting to see our community flourish with assistance from this funding.” Merski and Harkins said the entities and amounts receiving the tax credits by district are as follows: First Legislative District $82,000 to the Erie Center for Art and Technology to add a pharmacy as part of the Wayne School project. $33,000 to Erie Arts and Culture to provide access to cultural experiences for low-income youth.

Harkins: $40,000 grant for Wesleyville park playground improvements

(Nov 14, 2019)

ERIE, Nov. 14 – New playground equipment and related renovations are coming to Wesleyville’s Memorial Park, thanks to a $40,000 grant from the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, state Rep. Pat Harkins, D-Erie, announced today. “Safe, well-equipped playgrounds where kids can exercise and adults can socialize make a huge quality-of-life difference for stressed, busy parents and kids with energy to burn,” Harkins said. “Last year, Emory ‘Red’ Hinkler Park received a major facelift, but more of these green spaces are desperately needed. Now, thanks to this funding, similar amenities are on the horizon for families in the Memorial Park area.” Harkins said the grant – administered by DCNR through the Community Conservation Partnerships Program – will fund installation of playground equipment with required safety surfacing, ADA access, landscaping, project signage and other site improvements. The C2P2 program funds projects such as planning, acquisition and development of public parks and recreation areas, motorized and non-motorized trails, river conservation and access and conservation of open space.

Harkins: Nearly $365,000 to resurface multiple Lawrence Township roads

(Nov 12, 2019)

ERIE, Nov. 12 – Multiple streets in Lawrence Park Township will be getting a major facelift, thanks to a $363,800 grant from the Commonwealth Financing Authority, state Rep. Pat Harkins, D-Erie, announced today. “Rehabilitating Lawrence Park’s deteriorating roads is vitally important to the township’s residents, who deserve the safest, smoothest commute possible,” Harkins said. “With the funding announced today, the township can move forward with repaving aging, inadequate roads and replacing existing sidewalk ramps with ADA-compliant ones to ensure safe access for all pedestrians.” Harkins said the funding – provided by the CFA Multimodal Transportation Fund – will fund repaving of the following roads: Priestley Avenue from Field to Bell. Field Street from Priestley to Rankine. Emmet Street from Rankine to Silliman. Morse Street from Silliman to about 200 feet past Smithson. Smithson Avenue from Main to Iroquois. Rankine Avenue from Field to Main. Rankine Avenue Iroquois to East Lake Road. Lasalle Avenue from Frontenac to Vandalia. Vandalia Avenue from Putnam to Lake Cliff. Putnam Drive from Lake Cliff to Vandalia. Nobel Avenue from Iroquois to East Lake. Cunningham Drive from Emmet to East Lake Road. The township is requesting a waiver to the local match requirement. The total project cost Read more

 

Merski/Harkins bills would strengthen regs to prevent repeat of deadly fire

(Nov 07, 2019)

ERIE, Nov. 7 – By strengthening inspection and equipment requirements governing smoke detectors in child care facilities, a two-bill package introduced by state Reps. Bob Merski and Pat Harkins, both D-Erie, would help prevent a repeat of the tragic fire that claimed the lives of five Erie children at a day care center earlier this year. One bill would require the state Department of Human Services to check all smoke detectors during its annual inspections of child care facilities and ensure that written emergency plans, fire log drills and posted evacuation notices are in place. A second bill would require child care facilities throughout the state to maintain smoke detectors on every floor that are interconnected via hardwire, Bluetooth or any other means that would allow for communications between the devices. “Although state law requires that child care facilities have smoke detectors on every floor, the law does not go far enough – either in terms of inspections or equipment,” Merski said. “While DHS inspects child care facilities for various health and safety issues, state law has not previously mandated that the agency inspect for working smoke detectors. Our bill would change that. It also would require facilities to maintain interconnected smoke detectors so that, regardless of where a fire started, occupants on every floor could be warned with enough time to escape.” Harkins added Read more

 

Harkins, Merski: More than $264,000 to address Lake Erie Coastal Zone projects

(Oct 22, 2019)

ERIE, Oct. 22 – Grants totaling more than $264,000 from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection will fund programs to address coastal zone erosion and educate the public about related environmental issues, state Reps. Pat Harkins and Bob Merski, both D-Erie, announced. Merski and Harkins said some of the grants include: $50,000 to the Erie Times-News in Education for a weekly feature on coastal zone environmental issues. $50,000 to the Regional Science Consortium to research the geographical sources of E. coli contamination at Presque State Park beaches. $15,000 to Mercyhurst University to develop a bluff erosion model along Lake Erie’s shoreline. $15,000 to the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources for shorebird monitoring at Presque Isle State Park. $5,500 to the Erie County Conservation District to develop an invasive species management plan for Millcreek’s Headwaters Park and to finance a youth education program. “Education is always a critical first step in raising awareness and then promoting best practices, and this is especially true when it comes to environmental issues,” Merski said. “The more we educate the public about the unique characteristics and challenges affecting coastal zones, the better we become about being good stewards of this amazing and beautiful natural resource.” Harkins agreed, Read more

 

House Democrats stand with union workers for manufacturing jobs

(Oct 21, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Oct. 21 − House Democratic Leader Frank Dermody said members today welcomed United Auto Workers Local 677, currently striking for job security, benefits and wages at Mack Trucks manufacturing plants, to speak about the ongoing battle to rebuild the middle class. “We couldn’t be prouder to stand in solidarity with these hard-working Pennsylvanians as they fight to make sure the economy helps everyone, not just the corporate executives down in North Carolina,” Dermody said. “You can’t sustain the middle class without these workers on the job, and we’re ready to do what we can to support them.” Dermody said the workers were invited by Rep. Peter Schweyer, D-Lehigh, home of the United Auto Workers Local 677, whose members work at Mack Trucks facilities throughout Pennsylvania. “There’s nothing more American than a Mack truck, unless you’re talking about a union job that pays a wage you can raise a family on, offers benefits to support that family, and makes sure every worker has a chance to retire and let a new worker join the team,” Schweyer said. “These men and women want to get back to work, the local managers want these hard-working professionals back on the lines, and the greater Allentown area needs these people shopping and supporting local businesses. I have their backs 100 percent.” “It’s been nearly 40 years since a Read more

 

Harkins, Merski: Nearly $53,000 to fund Erie school safety resources

(Oct 18, 2019)

ERIE, Oct. 18 – Erie schools are receiving three grants totaling $52,850 to fund safety-related upgrades, state Reps. Pat Harkins and Bob Merski, both D-Erie, announced today. The legislators said the funding includes $24,240 to the Erie City School District for security-related equipment, $24,935 to Erie County Technical School for security-related equipment, and $3,675 to Bethel Christian School for safety-related programs. “After 20 years in the classroom, I know from a teacher’s perspective how important a secure, supportive learning environment is to allow kids to focus, thrive and learn,” Merski said. “The funding announced today is great news for our schools because it allows them to move forward with specific plans they’ve developed to promote this kind of environment.” Harkins agreed, adding, “School safety is about protecting our kids’ physical well-being, but it’s also about making sure they feel secure. The resources made possible by these grants will help keep fear out of the classroom.” The grants are part of a package of $7.2 million in competitive 2019-20 Safe Schools Targeted Grants from the state Department of Education. The funding – awarded to both public and non-public schools throughout the commonwealth – is designed to help schools prevent or curb violence, purchase safety and security-related equipment, Read more

 

Bizzarro, Harkins, Merski: $32 million loan to ensure safe water supply for Erie

(Oct 16, 2019)

ERIE, Oct. 16 – A $32 million low-interest loan from the Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority will ensure that Erie residents continue to enjoy reliable access to safe drinking water, state Reps. Ryan Bizzarro, Pat Harkins and Bob Merski, all D-Erie, announced today. The loan to Erie City Water Authority will fund projects that enhance service for more than 57,000 residents. “Ensuring a safe, reliable water supply depends on smooth, coordinated functioning of multiple systems, from pumps and chlorination equipment to treatment, testing and storage facilities,” Merski said. “This funding is essential to help us address long-standing issues such as pump stations that are at the end of their useable lives and an 80-year-old treatment plant building long overdue for upgrades.” Harkins agreed, noting, “The water authority has already invested more than $60 million in upgrading filtration equipment and standby power. The new financing builds on those improvements by addressing plant infrastructure issues, remedying code violations and expanding water storage to ensure Erie and surrounding towns have a plentiful, continuous supply.” Bizzarro added that the funding allows Erie to continue to fulfill its most important duties to residents. “Safeguarding public and community health is the No. 1 priority for government,” he said. “The funding Read more

 

Bizzarro, Harkins, Merski: $500,000 grant brings Erie closer to becoming ‘smart city’

(Oct 10, 2019)

HARRISBURG, Oct. 10 – Erie is one step closer to becoming a “smart city,” thanks to a $500,000 grant that will fund the city’s broadband deployment program and provide free public Wi-Fi access, state Reps. Ryan Bizzarro, Pat Harkins and Bob Merski, all D-Erie, announced today. The grant from the Appalachian Regional Commission will expand Erie’s “Secure Smart City Pilot” – a project launched last year to help the city use electronic data collection to better manage resources, fight crime, and improve efficiency. “I’m especially excited about how this program is going to make us a safer community,” Harkins said. “I have been working with law enforcement for some time on this project, and this infusion of funding is going to enhance security in areas that are prone to crime. We’ll be seeing urban security solutions that include traffic monitoring, analytics that can be tracked on a visualization dashboard, and better lighting, including the ability to remotely control streetlights.” Merski noted that the technology also will enable Erie to save money and operate more efficiently. “The theory behind smart cities is that they use information t echnology to capture data that can pinpoint exactly where resources are needed,” Merski said. “That allows us to target specific areas needing assistance while reducing wasteful spending. It Read more

 

Harkins, Merski: Grant will bring urban agriculture to the classroom

(Oct 02, 2019)

ERIE, Oct. 2 – Erie students will soon get hands-on experience with urban agriculture thanks to a $825 microgrant that will fund supplies and equipment for 14 school gardens, according to state Reps. Pat Harkins and Bob Merski, both D-Erie. The funding – part of the first round of Pennsylvania Farm Bill grants – will allow the Erie City School District to purchase soil, seed trays and hydro domes to create starter plants for the gardens. “Some of the best lessons are those that allow kids to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty,” Harkins said. “For city kids, planting seeds, watching them sprout and harvesting food they’ve grown themselves teaches about the life cycle in a way no book can. It also shows that you don’t need a lot of land to create a peaceful, productive green space.” Merski agreed, noting, “A well-rounded education isn’t just about teaching kids math and reading – it’s about allowing them to cultivate life-sustaining skills to help address food insecurity and empower whole communities. Those are skills they will carry with them their whole lives.” The grant is part of a package of funding to benefit 28 projects in various counties statewide and comes from the Urban Agriculture Infrastructure Grant Program, part of the state’s first-ever Pennsylvania Farm Bill.
