   POLITICSPA RISING STARS

Pennsylvania has no shortage of young up-and-coming people whose professional stars are on the rise. We picked individuals whose talent, ability and shining careers have made our radar screen.  Some are legislative staff members making a difference in government. Some are lobbyists we think are about to make it big.  Some are campaign operatives making their mark in politics. And some are consultants to keep an eye on.  As always, our list is purely subjective. This list does not include elected officials and the names are listed in alphabetical order.
