One of Corbett's Go-To Shale Guys, Jim Cawley

Lieutenant Governor Jim Cawley is one of Governor Corbett’s point men on energy issues. Cawley headed Corbett’s Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission, which was charged with developing policy recommendations on economic development and regulation of natural gas drilling.

Before being sworn in as LG, Cawley served as a Bucks County Commissioner from 2005 to 2011. He’s a former aide to Republican state Senator Tommy Tomlinson, and counts former Governor Mark Schweiker – another lieutenant governor from southeastern Pennsylvania – as a mentor. Cawley has an undergraduate and law school degree from Temple University.
