HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – Pennsylvania Gov.-elect Tom Wolf wants Maryland’s top cop to become Pennsylvania’s top cop.
In a series of Cabinet announcements Thursday, Wolf said he’ll select Marcus Brown, Maryland’s state police superintendent, to take over as Pennsylvania’s state police commissioner.
The Democrat also says he’ll nominate Maj. Gen. James Joseph as the state’s adjutant general, overseeing the Pennsylvania National Guard. Joseph directed the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency for nearly two years under former Gov. Ed Rendell.
Once nominated, both men will require state Senate confirmation.
Wolf says he’s picked Richard Flynn to lead the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency. Flynn is now deputy director for operations at the Federal Emergency Management Agency. He also is tapping former state Sen. Timothy Solobay for state fire commissioner.
Wolf takes the oath of office Tuesday.
