HARRISBURG - The Pennsylvania Municipal Authorities Association (PMAA) has selected state Rep. Jim Rigby (R-Johnstown) as the winner of its 2022 Distinguished Service Award. The recognition is given to individuals for their dedication and distinguished service to municipal authorities in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

“One of the greatest responsibilities we have as representatives at the state government level involves establishing solid relationships with governments at the local level…such as school districts, township and boroughs,” Rigby said. “My public service as a fireman and police chief made me aware of that before I chose to run for public office, which makes this honor extra special.”

Rigby’s responsibilities in the state House include membership on the House Local Government Committee. In June, he was named Public Official of the Year by the Pennsylvania Water Environment Association.

The award will be presented during the PMAA’s 80th-Annual Conference and Trade Show on Monday, Sept. 12 at the Bayfront Convention Center in Erie.

Questions about this or any legislative issue should be directed to Rigby’s district office at 1-814-536-9818.
