State public welfare secretary Gary Alexander leaving postSource: The Philadelphia Inquirer
Gov. Corbett's controversial public welfare secretary is leaving the administration, according to two sources with the knowledge of the decision.
Gary Alexander, who oversees a department charged with helping 2.1 million elderly, poor and disabled Pennsylvanians, will be leaving his $149,000 post by the end of the month.
Reached for comment this afternoon, Alexander said he did not want to discuss his future, saying he preferred to focus on the governor's budget address to the legislature tomorrow.
