“I have known John for the better part of three decades and recommend him highly as an advocate, lobbyist, speaker and colleague. ERG Partners have lectured internationally to various leadership programs and conferences the Pennsylvania Rural-Urban Leadership Program has hosted. His varied topics over the years have all ranked rave reviews, because the common thread is his passion, preparedness and knowledge base. Evaluations indicate a, "wealth of knowledge," "great perspective on leadership and the legislature," and, "Excellent! John definitely gave us a picture of how things work on The Hill.”
J.D. Dunbar, Executive Director PA Rural-Urban Leadership Program (RULE)
“John is an extremely talented professional. He has a wide range of expertise in consulting and government. He knows key players. He knows the issues. He knows how to bring people and resources together. He knows how to persuade and influence, envision and get results. Basically, he know how to get things done and done ethically, professionally and effectively.

I appreciate John's guidance and direction. He helped me countless times in my role as Regional Director of DCED in NWPA, in terms of how to best approach and frame an issue, know what and what not to do. The ultimate beneficiaries of his help have been the citizens of Commonwealth. With his base of knowledge of issues and people, and his proven track record of success, it is an easy task to recommend John.”
Phil Scrimenti Allegheny College
