Veterans’ Employment Outreach Day May 8, Says Barrar
UPPER CHICHESTER – Rep. Stephen E. Barrar (R-Chester/Delaware) is reminding veterans about an upcoming event sponsored by the Pennsylvania State Civil Service Commission to assist veterans seeking public employment.

“As the chairman of the House Veterans Affairs and Emergency Preparedness Committee, I have been fighting for the integrity of Pennsylvania’s veterans preference laws,” said Barrar. “I applaud the Civil Service Commission for hosting this event, and I encourage veterans to participate in this opportunity.”

On Tuesday, May 8, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., the Pennsylvania State Civil Service Commission will host a Veterans’ Employment Outreach Day in the Education and Technology Center of Holy Family University, located at 9801 Frankford Ave. in Philadelphia.

Participants are encouraged to bring a current résumé and a copy of his or her DD214.

Barrar noted he hosts veterans assistance hours in his Upper Chichester district office, located in Suite 13 in the Willowbrook Shopping Center, 3358 Chichester Ave., on the first and third Wednesdays of the month. During these hours a representative from the Pennsylvania American Legion is available by appointment from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Appointments can be made by contacting Barrar’s office at (610) 485-7606.
