Cassidy Chairman Barry Rhoads and the Cassidy BRAC Team were on site Friday in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania to assist the area’s Blue Ribbon Task Force in presenting an overview of the current Department of Defense budgetary environment and outlook for defense communities. The Northeastern Pennsylvania Alliance supports the Tobyhanna Army Depot.
The Times Leader reported the Cassidy Team “detailed key points on what needs to be said and done during a BRAC review.” It also quoted Barry telling community leaders, “Bad military bases are now closed… The good bases, like Tobyhanna, remain open.” Rhoads said the next BRAC review will focus on efficiency and maximum cost savings. “And the focus will be on closures over realignment,” he said.
