How Pam Helps Clients

Pam Snyder’s career in government spans three decades, and she helps clients navigate legislative and regulatory issues at the local, state and federal level. She previously served five terms as State Representative for Pennsylvania’s 50th Legislative District (Greene County).

Most recently, Pam served on the Transition Team Leadership Board for Governor Josh Shapiro and Lieutenant Governor Austin Davis. In 2022, she was appointed by Gov. Wolf as the new chair of the Pennsylvania Broadband Authority. She was integral in implementing a statewide broadband plan, as well as distributing state and federal funds allocated for internet expansion in Pennsylvania.

During her tenure as State Representative, Pam had multiple pieces of legislation passed and signed into law, and her proudest accomplishment is advocating to advance broadband initiatives across the Commonwealth. She was a co-sponsor on the bipartisan bill that established Act 96 of 2021, creating the Pennsylvania Broadband Deployment Authority.

Pam started her career in elected office as a Greene County Commissioner, serving as chair all 9 years. In that role, she focused on community and economic development.

During her time as Deputy District Director for Congressman Frank Mascara, she worked tirelessly on behalf of veterans, persisting until the first case of Persian Gulf Syndrome was officially recognized by the federal government. Her efforts were acknowledged by the late U.S. Senator John McCain in his 2014 book Thirteen Soldiers.

What Clients Can Expect

Pam has had the unique opportunity to work on three levels of government: local, state and federal. This gives her an insight to government that is beneficial to clients. Her expertise and experience in the energy and broadband sectors will assist in understanding how to help clients cut through the bureaucracy. 

Pam is an optimist who doesn’t take no for an answer.  When an issue seems impossible, she continues to push it forward to find a solution.  

Outside the Office
