James “Moon” VanSteenberg Elected President of the Pennsylvania State Treasurers Association

James “Moon” VanSteenberg was elected to the office of President of the Pennsylvania State Treasurers Association last week at the Associations annual Conference held in Cranberry Township, Butler County.

“Moon” has been active with the association in various capacities. Serving on the Bi-Laws Committee, Antlerless Deer Committee, Executive Board, second Vice President, Vice President and now as President.

He has been the Antlerless Doe Committee Chair and or Co-Chair for 12 years. In this capacity, he attends the Quarterly Communications of the Game Commission in Harrisburg and represents the Treasurers Association at those meetings. He has given testimony at those meetings as well as in House Committee meetings. He has also lobbied before individual committee members. Most of this testimony is explaining to the Commission and Legislature the benefits and a high degree of professionalism the Treasurers bring to the Antlerless License issuing process.

“The Treasurers Association wants the licensing process to be fair and equable to all hunters in Pennsylvania, not just those who have easy access to the internet,” said Moon ina release issued Tuesday. “If licensing would be taken away from the Treasurers, it would constitute a substantial loss of income to most rural Counties including Jefferson.”

The 2020 State Treasurers Conference will be held the second week of June in DuBois.

Moon resides in Baxter with his wife Barbara, Daughter Danielle and Dog Koda.
