Center Mourns Passing of Board Treasurer Rep. Sid Michaels Kavulich

Rep. Sid Michaels KavulichIt is with deep sadness that the Center for Rural Pennsylvania mourns the loss of Board Treasurer Rep. Sid Michaels Kavulich. Rep. Kavulich passed Tuesday, October 16, due to complications from heart surgery earlier in the month.

“Rep. Kavulich cared deeply about Pennsylvania and was a strong advocate for our rural residents and communities,” said Sen. Gene Yaw, board chairman. “We were fortunate to have Sid on the board. We will remember him for his integrity, thoughtfulness, and leadership. He will be sorely missed.”

Rep. Kavulich served on the Center’s Board of Directors since 2015. He was first elected to the state House of Representatives in 2011 and served on the Agriculture and Rural Affairs, Finance, Gaming Oversight, Tourism and Recreational Development, and Local Government committees.
