“I want to praise Jackie McGovern for the outstanding job she has done in her twenty years of distinguished service to Schuylkill County. I am excited by the opportunity to serve, and I believe my qualifications and strong coal region work values will serve me well as Treasurer,” said Linda Marchalk. “Both of my parents were hard-working people, and I credit much of my success to having had them as examples. I have worked very hard to get where I am today and, in fact, I am committed to working just as hard for the taxpayers of Schuylkill County as Treasurer.”
