PA Towing Hires Lobbyist Firm

The Pennsylvania Towing Association is excited to announce the retention of Schafer Government Affairs, Inc. to represent the Association on all legislative and Agency matters in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. This is a huge step forward for the Association in being the voice of the Pennsylvania towing industry. Association President Deb Abel says “Hiring a lobbyist to represent the PTA has been a goal for me for many years. I am excited to work with SGA on legislative issues for our members and the towing industry.”

SGA is headed by Sean Schafer, who brings more than eleven (11) years’ experience representing various industries in state government. With direct experience working in the Pennsylvania Senate along with PennDOT and the Pennsylvania State Police, Sean, along with his team, are very well positioned to fight for the betterment of Pennsylvania towers across many fronts, including at the Agency level -not just with the legislative process.

“We are very excited to bring the experience and dedication of Sean, Lauren and their entire team at Schafer Government Affairs to the table in Harrisburg on behalf of all towing companies in the Commonwealth.” Says Brian Riker, Executive Director of the Association.
