    The Pennsylvania Commission for the United States Semiquincentennial (America250PA) appointed Cassandra Coleman as Executive Director for the America250PA initiative in September 2019.

    Prior to her appointment, Cassandra served as Special Advisor to the Office of Governor Tom Wolf and Director of Governor Wolf’s Northeast & Central offices. In this role, she was responsible for intergovernmental and constituency services on behalf of the Governor in 28 counties.

    In 2014, Ms. Coleman founded and served as President of Coleman & Associates, a company engaged in charitable, private, and political creation of fundraising networks and community and political event planning. Coleman & Associates maintained a client base of state, county and local political candidates, large and small companies, and non-profit organizations.

    Ms. Coleman has spent a lifetime in public service beginning at a very young age. At the age of twenty, Cassandra was appointed Mayor of her hometown of Exeter Borough to fill her late grandfather, Mayor Joseph Coyne’s unexpired term. Following her appointment, Cassandra was re-elected Mayor twice.

    Ms. Coleman was one of the youngest female mayors in the history of the United States. She was featured in Oprah Magazine in a segment titled “Women Who Defy Age.” Cassandra was also featured in a national NBC segment called “The Smart Woman”. The Times Leader Media Group honored Cassandra twice for her accomplishments; in 2008 as a Top 40 under 40 recipient and named her in 2019 as one of 14 Distinctive Women. In addition, she has been chosen one of Northeast Pennsylvania Business Journal’s Top 25 Women in Business, named by City & State PA as a Top 40 under 40 in PA and honored with the Young Professional Women’s Leadership Award by Athena International.
