John Hanger, Secretary of the Governor’s Office of Policy and Planning, announced today that he is leaving his position in the Wolf Administration in order to spend more time with his family.

In a press release, Hanger stated, “It has been an honor to serve an extraordinary governor and his administration who work tirelessly to make [a] better Pennsylvania. It is difficult to leave, but I cannot be in two places at once,” referring to the fact that his family lives in Massachusetts.

Added Hanger, “Commuting regularly to and from Massachusetts and doing my demanding job has become impossible. At this point, it is important to place first my wife of 36 years and my remarkable daughter who have supported me in my work. We have accomplished so much in a little more than one year including Medicaid expansion, a comprehensive plan to combat the heroin crisis and enacting greater environmental protections.”

Governor Wolf has named Sarah Galbally as new Secretary of Policy and Planning. Previously, Galbally was the Deputy Secretary for Policy and Planning.
