“Local government is essential for building and sustaining communities. My commitment to shaping a promising future for State College includes good strategic decisions shared in partnership with Penn State and local businesses. We also need to continue our efforts with our representative in Harrisburg to find additional revenue enhancing alternatives for local government,” said Dauler.
“In these challenging times, we must not forget the importance of remaining a welcoming safe community. As your mayor, I pledge to promote civility, transparency, equity and inclusion in all aspects of our civic life,” Dauler continued.
