Gina Cerilli, Westmoreland commissioner, joins Pittsburgh law firm

Westmoreland County Commissioner Gina Cerilli has taken on part-time work as a lawyer with a Pittsburgh firm.

Sims said it is not unusual for elected officials, including many in the state Legislature, to hold jobs as lawyers in addition to their positions as state representatives and senators. “We try to monitor to make sure the work doesn’t conflict with their state duties. As long as their work is not in direct conflict with their duties, we don’t see it as a problem,” Sims said.
