Representative Neal P. Goodman has started an online petition to save the State Correctional Institution in Frackville.
Goodman’s petition reads:
“Dear Gov. Tom Wolf and Department of Corrections Secretary John Wetzel:
Please keep SCI Frackville open! It is one of the best, most modern state prisons in Pennsylvania. It has the second-lowest cost per inmate, is the most versatile because it can accommodate all four levels of prisoners, and is in excellent condition. With a 5.7 percent unemployment rate in Schuylkill County, we cannot afford to lose 400 good-paying jobs.”
