Aument Elected to Senate Republican Caucus Leadership

(HARRISBURG) – Earlier today, Senator Ryan Aument (R-Landisville) received the unanimous approval of his colleagues in the Senate Republican Caucus to serve them as their Caucus Secretary for the remainder of the 2019-2020 legislative session.

“During my time in the General Assembly, my goal has always been to advance an opportunity agenda, including policies that build strong families, vibrant and interconnected communities, an economy that works, and high performing schools,” said Sen. Aument.  

“As such, I have continually sought to serve in positions where I can have the greatest impact on behalf of those who elected me to represent them in Harrisburg.  I see this leadership position as a unique opportunity to work with my colleagues in the Senate Republican Caucus to give all Pennsylvanians, regardless of their situation in life, a chance to experience earned success and upward mobility.”

Senator Joe Scarnati, President Pro Tempore, congratulated Senator Aument on his election:  “Throughout his time in the Senate he has been an influential leader, advocating for numerous important issues including job growth initiatives, government efficiency and reducing government spending.  Senator Aument will be a great asset to our Republican Leadership team as we work together to tackle tough issues and make Pennsylvania a stronger state.”

Senator Jake Corman, Majority Leader, echoed Senator Scarnati’s sentiments.  “Senator Aument is a smart, hardworking legislator who is well respected in our Caucus,” Senator Corman said. “His military background combined with his service in local government and the state House means he brings a wide range of experience to the table. He will be a valuable asset to our leadership team as we continue to put Pennsylvanians first and move our Commonwealth forward.”   

Senator Aument is eager to build upon the record of success of the Senate Republican Caucus, and is honored to serve as a member of their leadership team.

“My experience in public service has shown me one thing that is very certain:  If we can find ways to listen to one another, support one another, and effectively champion our policies, we can succeed in expanding opportunities for our people and our state,” said Sen. Aument.

“To that end, I’m humbled by the outpouring of support and level of confidence my colleagues have placed in me as their new Caucus Secretary.  It is a privilege to serve in this new capacity, and I look forward to continuing to pursue policies that give all of our people an opportunity to live in a stronger Pennsylvania.”
