 GOV. CASEY NAMES MCCARTHY TO SEPTA BOARD
 HARRISBURG, Pa., Jan. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Gov. Robert P. Casey


announced today the appointment of Philadelphia attorney Patrick H. McCarthy to serve as his representative on the board of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA).
 McCarthy replaces H. Patrick Swygert who resigned last year to become president of the University at Albany, State University of New York.
 McCarthy is a 1971 graduate of Harvard College and a 1975 graduate of Harvard Law School. He served as chief of staff to U.S. Rep. Joseph Moakley (D-Mass.), currently chairman of the House Rules Committee. He later served as general counsel to the secretary of Consumer Affairs in the state of Massachusetts and assistant chief counsel for Advocacy to the U.S. Small Business Administration in Washington, D.C.
 "Pat McCarthy brings a solid background of congressional, state and legal experience to this position," Casey said. "As chief of staff to Congressman Moakley, he was actively involved in the development and adoption of mass transit legislation. He has a strong command of transit issues and a depth of understanding of SEPTA's needs. He will bring a strong, positive commitment to the challenges at SEPTA in this crucial period as SEPTA builds for the future."
 McCarthy currently is a partner in the firm of Wolf, Block, Schorr and Solis-Cohen.
 "Gov. Casey has led the way in recruiting new leadership and securing increased funding, as well as a dedicated funding source, for SEPTA," McCarthy said. "I look forward to serving as his representative on the board."
