Senate Environmental Committee Unanimously OKs Renomination Of Dunn As DCNR Secretary

On April 30, the Senate Environmental Resources and Energy Committee unanimously reported out the renomination of Cindy Adams Dunn as DCNR Secretary with a favorable recommendation to the full Senate.
“I congratulate Ms. Dunn on the support she has garnered from the Senate Environmental Committee,” said Sen. Gene Yaw (R-Lycoming), Majority Chair of the Committee.  “While we may have differences of opinion on certain issues, I feel she has worked to manage and maintain Pennsylvania’s 121 state parks to the best of her ability, promote our state’s water resources, forests, and educate the public on a number of important issues, including our state’s endangered species.  I am pleased to continue working with her.”
Dunn has led DCNR since she was nominated as Acting Secretary in January 2015 and was later confirmed by the Senate.  She returned to the agency where she worked under three governors in multiple positions over the last two decades.
Since November 2013, Dunn had served as the president and chief executive officer of PennFuture, a statewide environmental advocacy organization.
Prior to her time at PennFuture, Dunn served as DCNR’s Deputy Secretary of Conservation and Technical Services from 2007-2013, where she led DCNR's conservation landscape program and oversaw the community conservation partnerships grant program, which provides $30-$60 million annually for conservation and recreation throughout the Commonwealth.
