PA row officers poised to take their oaths

Written by The Associated Press | Jan 15, 2013 5:50 AM

(Harrisburg) -- An all-Democrat slate of Pennsylvania row officers is about to be sworn in. 

Kathleen Kane of Scranton -- the first woman and first Democrat to be elected state attorney general -- is slated to take her oath this afternoon in the rotunda of the state Capitol.

Also today, Eugene DePasquale of York is stepping down from his longtime seat in the House of Representatives to be sworn in as state auditor general in a ceremony at the Pennsylvania State Museum.

State Treasurer Rob McCord of Bryn Mawr plans to take his oath for his second term at a ceremony in a state office building across the street from the Capitol.

All three will serve four-year terms. They all receive the same salary, which is currently $155,797.
