Timothy Wachter Appointed Commissioner of America 250PA

Posted on March 03, 2021

Timothy S. Wachter, Shareholder, has been appointed as a Commissioner and Executive Committee Member of America 250PA as of December 2020.

America250PA, or the Pennsylvania Commission for the United States Semiquincentennial, "was established by the legislature and Governor in 2018 to plan, encourage, develop and coordinate the commemoration of the 250th anniversary of the founding of the United States, Pennsylvania's integral role in that event, and the impact of its people on the nation's past, present, and future."

One of the Commission's first initiatives is to ensure every veteran's grave in Pennsylvania has an American Flag (made in the USA) placed on it in 2026.

Of his involvement, Mr. Wachter said: "Pennsylvania is the cradle of liberty in America and the birthplace of our nation. It is a great honor to help plan our celebration of the 250th anniversary of America's founding by highlighting the people of Pennsylvania, our common history, milestones and achievements. It is most exciting, however, to work with people from throughout the Commonwealth to make this celebration uniquely Pennsylvanian."

As a member of the Governmental, Public Finance & Bonds and Business & Tax Practice Groups, and as lead for Knox Law Public Strategies, Mr. Wachter regularly advises governmental, business and nonprofit clients on highly complex legal, regulatory and public policy related matters. He also regularly provides counsel on matters related to the Pennsylvania Right-to-Know Law to dozens of agencies throughout Western Pennsylvania, is recognized as a national thought leader in Federal Opportunity Zone Development and regularly advises businesses and stakeholders regarding Opportunity Zone investments.
