Michael Negra, a resident of Potter Township, Centre County, was confirmed by the Senate Thursday as the newest member of the Liquor Control Board , according to Sen. Jake Corman (R-Centre).
Mr. Negra was confirmed by a unanimous vote and begins work in his new position upon swearing in.
“I think Mike is a great choice for the LCB board,” said Sen. Corman. “Not only does Mike have extensive experience in customer-based sales and marketing, but he also brings a great approach to managing that will pull the best out of this state-run operation.”
The LCB consist of three voting members who serve four-year terms. Each member must be nominated by the Governor and confirmed by the full state Senate.
The LCB is the state-created regulator of the sale of alcohol in the Commonwealth. Additionally, the LCB serves to educate consumers on the responsible use of alcohol, works to prevent underage alcohol use, and seeks to ensure convenient access to a wide array of wine and spirits products.“I have known Mike for many years and fully support his nomination to the LCB,” said Sen. Corman. “I believe his Central Pennsylvania perspective will benefit LCB operations and our region well.”
