– In honor of the late Sen. Harold F. Mowery Jr., Rep. Greg Rothman (R-Cumberland) today introduced a bill designating the bridge carrying Route 1025 over U.S. Route 11/15 in East Pennsboro Township, Cumberland County, as the “Senator Hal Mowery Memorial Bridge.”
“Senator Mowery’s professional achievements, extensive community involvement and myriad of awards and accolades, stand as a strong testimony to his genuine concern for the well-being of this Commonwealth,” said Rothman. “This dedication is a lasting tribute to his legacy of public service and entrepreneurship. It is a pleasure leading the efforts in the Pennsylvania Legislature to designate a local bridge in his name.”
Raised in Mechanicsburg, Mowery was a graduate of Mechanicsburg High School and Dickinson College. Over several decades, he founded multiple successful insurance businesses that employed hundreds of Pennsylvanians.
Mowery was elected to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives in 1976, serving seven terms. In 1992, he was elected to represent the 31st District in the Senate of Pennsylvania, serving until his retirement in 2004. During and after his public service, he was a prominent community leader, supporting the establishment of the Camp Hill Lion Foundation to enhance academic, athletic and cultural resources. Mowery aided many charities by sponsoring and supporting benefits, galas and community fundraisers. He was also an active supporter of the Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts.
