Our friends at the Pennsylvania Department of Military and Veterans Affairs has launched PA VetConnect, a website designed to connect veterans, especially our older adult veterans, to resources no matter where they live.

There are some areas of Pennsylvania that do not have formal programs for our vets due to lack of funding, but this website addresses those gaps through coordination and community partnerships.

"We have the most extensive voter fraud organization." ------Joe Biden
I need some help. What forms do I need to file to modify a custody agreement?
The gop throughout the nation, including dumpster fire are all pissed because they cannot purge voters with the 2020 election. They are trying so hard to push voter fraud because they cannot do this:
If we could only get all the good blue/red state patriots together to get rid of the weak, dumb criminal morons in BLM and AntiFA. We would win without a a doubt. And that is the only issue., We work, we love out lives, ourselves, our families and have hope for our futures. We have goals and people we want to protect so we don't choose to hate, destroy and attack others like those animals do. But if it unfortunately does get to that point it will be the corrupt Democrats, fake news idiots and the China loving high tech and Holllywood perverts to blame. We have to protect our great country. Never give in.
To judges on the supreme court. You cannot change election laws. Do not mess with our election. The count should be on Nov. 3. Uphold our constitutional rights.
The supreme court of pa is working for the democrats as far as allowing the mail in votes to be accounted after Tuesday. If trump wins, then the mail in after will be stuff with phoney ballots. Not constitutional. Shame on you.
Gm, please give me, bill coseby a chance to be released back to his wife and family God is good I pray he be release this year 2020 from min warren
Tell your Supreme Court justices.... We'll ALL be watching this one CLOSELY. Don't think for a second they'll be allowed to just sit in Wolf's back pocket and allow him to be a dictator any further. Title 35 is clear. The legislature's CO-EQUAL Power is clear. They absolutely have the right to end the disaster declaration of the Governor. HR836 has every right and expectation to be enforced. We also expect the governor to be held accountable for his delay of signing the executive order ending this as well, not just told he must sign it. THE PUBLIC IS WATCHING. The political party of the justices must be irrelevant to this. There is zero place for that here nor should there ever be. This is about following statutory LAW!
We the citizens of PA will not allow this governor to do an end around the statutes of PA and ignore his statutory obligation to end the emergency declaration in PA due to the passage of HR836. The legislature passed a concurrent resolution. The governor does in which he does not have the right to veto. The language around the emergency declaration is clear. "The governor SHALL sign an executive order ending the state of emergency." Not questionable language. This is not a bill being sent to his desk. The legislature has the power to end this by a concurrent resolution, period. If the state Supreme Court decides to take this up early next week, we expect HR836 to be enforced as it should have been at the beginning as required by law. This belongs in the lower court as Wolf has a pending case. Please ensure your justices understand and do what's right here by the law and either enforce HR836, or allow the lower court to handle the case as they should be. We are all watching. Thank you.

We have been awaiting our ability to initiate probate action regarding the death of a parent that occurred March 24 2020. How do I find out when the relevant Allegheny County court will re-open?
Why can Allegheny county cancel jury duty for next week, but Judge Motto cant???❓
