York County, Pa., people always in news

John Fetterman is mayor of the western Pennsylvania steel town of Braddock.
He’s also a Harvard-trained lawyer.
And he’s captured the notice of The Atlantic as a “Brace Thinker.”
He’s also a York County native.
York countians are everywhere. We have our national celebs and athletes and politicians.

Since its inception, the county has been in the middle of things. Given its location, that shouldn’t change.
