DAN CLARK, 14-YEAR OLD VETERAN OF THE PA HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, JOINS PUGLIESE ASSOCIATES

 

Daniel F. Clark of Mifflintown, an attorney who served 14 years as a member of the state House of Representatives, is joining the prominent Harrisburg lobbying firm of Pugliese Associates.

 

“Dan brings a wealth of experience to his new position and we are delighted he will be returning to Harrisburg on behalf of our more than 50 clients,” said Rocco Pugliese, the president and founder of the firm. “In addition,  Dan is well respected across both sides of the aisle and in both chambers of the General Assembly.”

 

Dan Clark stated that “ I am not only happy to be back to the city where I spent 14 years of my professional life but to be joining a firm that I have known for a long time. I always liked how the firm engaged members of the Legislature and staff. Pugliese Associates does it in a credible and substantive fashion. I am very excited about joining the Pugliese Team.”

 

Since leaving the state House of Representatives in late 2002, Clark has kept a hand in state government as a member of the Independent Regulatory Review Commission. IRCC is the state agency that reviews and has final say on regulations promulgated by the various branches of state government. He was appointed to that position by House Speaker John Perzel.

 

While serving in the General Assembly, Clark continued his private practice of law. In addition, he developed interests in commercial real estate developments in Juniata County. He also served as the county’s district attorney from 1984 until his election to the state House in 1988.

 

During his tenure in the state House, he served on the Commerce and Economic Development Committee, the Environmental Resources and Energy Committee and the Judiciary Committee. In 1994, he used his legal skills as one of the House managers in the successful impeachment trial of former State Supreme Court Justice Rolf Larsen.

 

Clark was instrumental in having improvements made to Route 22/322, the main highway artery through the 82nd House district, which led to easier travel for residents to State College and Harrisburg.

 

He received his bachelor’s degree in accounting from Lycoming College in Williamsport and he is a graduate of the Duquesne University School of Law in Pittsburgh. A father of three, Clark resides in Mifflintown.
