John Fetterman

Power 100 list

John Fetterman

Lieutenant Governor

Commonwealth of Pennsylvania

Fetterman’s duties as lieutenant governor include oversight of the Pennsylvania Board of Pardons, presiding over the Senate of Pennsylvania.

He has been in the position for two years. He was sworn in as the commonwealth’s 34th lieutenant governor January 15, 2019.

He is most proud of two professional accomplishments while serving as lieutenant governor—both involving the state Board of Pardons. That Dennis Horton and Lee Horton will not die in prison as innocent men, and that Reid Evans and Wyatt Evans will not needlessly die in prison, and that their freedom is allowing the victim’s family to finally heal,” he said. Both sets of brothers were serving life in prison sentences for murder. Their sentences were commuted by Gov. Wolf on Feb. 11. A commutation of a life sentence means a reduction of the sentence to life on parole.

Fetterman said the most important life lesson he’s learned is that compassion is always the right side of history.

For fun he spends as much time as possible with his family. “It’s by far the most important thing in my life,” Fetterman said.
