Congratulations to State Senator John P. Blake (D-Lackawanna) who ran and completed the annual
Steamtown Marathon on Sunday in Scranton, marking Senator Blake's fifth marathon. Also, Senator Blake was recognized last Friday in Lancaster as the
Legislator of The Year for 2013 by the National Association of Social Workers, Pennsylvania Chapter (NASW-PA). Senator Blake is the only current sitting member of the General Assembly to hold a Masters in Social Work (MSW). He was recognized by NASW for his work on behalf of the social work profession and for being a tireless advocate for the vulnerable populations social workers often serve.
