Hempfield native Bob Bozzuto named to state GOP post

Bob Bozzuto, a Hempfield native, was named deputy executive director of the Republican Party of Pennsylvania.

Bozzuto, 29, was promoted to the post Thursday by party Chairman Robert Gleason.

“As deputy executive director, Bob will work directly with Executive Director Mike Barley and oversee our political and communication departments,” Gleason said.

A 2003 graduate of the University of Pittsburgh, Bozzuto got his start in state politics with the Republican Party as North Hills field director for the Republican Committee of Allegheny County in 2003.

Bozzuto had served as the state GOP elections director, managing the political department and directing the state party’s political operations for statewide candidates, including U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey, Gov. Tom Corbett and Lt. Gov. Jim Cawley.

Before joining the state Republican Party staff, he worked for former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum in his Washington office and as a member of Santorum’s re-election staff.

He resides in Hampden, Cumberland County, with his wife, Alicia.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
