New Potter County Veterans Affairs Director Introduced

Potter County Today
Potter County’s new director of veterans affairs, Bill Simpson, was introduced during a meeting of the Potter County Board of Commissioners. Simpson, a resident of Oswayo, succeeds Will Worthington. A graduate of Oswayo Valley High School, Simpson served with the U.S Navy for more than 23 years. He recently retired after 30-plus years of service as a communications technician with Frontier Communications. Simpson was recently certified as a county veterans affairs director by the Pa. Dept. of Military and Veterans Affairs. This allows him to file claims with the VA for benefits and services on behalf of local military veterans. He intends to develop close working relationships with veterans service organizations in Potter County and build on the record of service established by his predecessors. Potter County has received multiple excellence awards for its veterans’ services. Simpson’s office is located on the first floor of the F. W. Gunzburger County Office Building at 1 North Main Street in Coudersport. Office hours for appointments and walk-ins will be announced. He can be reached at 814-274-8290, extension 210, or bsimpson@pottercountypa.net.
