  • David Dumeyer, Senior Consultant

    One of Triad’s senior consultants is Dave Dumeyer, is also owner of Dave Dumeyer Consulting, LLC.  The firm specializes in educational policy and political organizations, a mix he learned through a change in careers. Dave toiled sixteen years in the vineyards of public education, teaching foreign languages and social studies. He later worked in the state legislature, where he dealt extensively with agricultural and educational policy.

    His government experience encompasses 21 years as a House of Representatives staff member and, ultimately, as Executive Director of the House Education Committee. During his tenure, he helped to draft a number of key pieces of legislation.  One of the most prominent was Act 48, which mandates the continuing education of Commonwealth-certified teachers.

    Dave also brings local government experience to the table, having served as an elected township supervisor in West Hempfield Township for over two decades, the last seven of those as chairman of the board.  In addition to serving the township residents, Dave sits as a regional representative to the Lancaster County Tax Collection Bureau, one of Pennsylvania’s premier tax commissions.

    Dave brings multiple levels of value to Triad Strategies: his numerous contacts in state and local government and politics; his aptitude for researching  and analyzing complex policy problems; his ability to find solutions to difficult questions; and his knack for brokering successful deals.  The latter skill was honed through his local political activities in Pennsylvania’s most Republican county, Lancaster, where he served over six years as the county chairman.  Throughout his chairmanship, he had an unblemished record of leading the Lancaster County GOP to victorious campaigns for county, state and federal offices.

    Dave also is treasured asset to some of Triad’s non-profit clients but his service doesn’t stop at the office door.  He has been personally involved in Rotary, 4-H, Scouting, his congregation, and the Lancaster County educational community.  He currently teaches U.S. History and the History of Western Civilization on an adjunct basis at the Lancaster campus of Harrisburg Area Community College.

    Dave received his BA in German (education) from Susquehanna University and his MA in American history from Millersville University.  He lives with Donna, his wife of 42 years, in Landisville, PA. They are the parents of two married daughters and six grandkids. His roots, however, are in western Pennsylvania, as evidenced by his true passion: the Pittsburgh Steelers.

  • George Wolff, Senior Consultant

    It is difficult to describe how much of a legend George Wolff is in the Pennsylvania public affairs world and, frankly, he will be the last person to ever admit it.  Suffice to say that if it is happening in the world of agriculture, transportation or conservation and George doesn’t know it, it is probably not worth knowing.

    George is a true public affairs professional, toiling in the fields of agriculture and conservation since 1953. Over the years, he has also had a hand in workers compensation reform, business tax reductions, the statewide nutrient reduction program and water resources legislation.  Presently, he is leading the fight for funding for the road and bridge construction industry, while still keeping a close eye on food and product safety protection issues, as well as product liability reform.

    First appointed when Pennsylvania joined the Chesapeake Bay Commission in the 1980 and reappointed since by the President Pro Tempore of the Pennsylvania State Senate, George is the public member on the commission.  He is also a member of the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau, and a legislative committee member of the Pennsylvania State Grange. He is a former a member of the Board of Directors for Millers Mutual Insurance Company and as a past president of the Pennsylvania Association of Conservation Districts.  He was instrumental in coordinating a group which proposed recommendations for the management of the state’s water resources through regional and statewide management committees working in cooperation with the river basin commissions.

    George has also been active with organizations which promote the responsible stewardship of Pennsylvania’s water resources. In December 2003, he was appointed by Governor Rendell to the Statewide Water Resources Committee and in 2005 to the Pennsylvania Energy Advisory Board.

    Not content to work solely in public affairs, George has owned and operated farms in Lebanon County for over forty years, where he practiced an intensive grain rotation program. He attended Purdue University, majoring in animal husbandry. From 1954 to 1960, George served as the Director of Agricultural Relations for the Pennsylvania Motor Truck Association.

    In February 2002, Governor Mark Schweiker appointed George to the Agricultural By-Product Management Technology Board. At the behest of Governor Dick Thornburgh in the early years of his administration, George served as co-chairman of the “Vote Yes for Water” Committee, a public relations effort aimed at passage of a state water referendum funding issue to establish PennVest. He served at Governor Robert Casey’s request as a member of a select committee to develop regulations for a nutrient management program which resulted in Act 6 of 1993. Additionally, at Governor Casey’s request, George served as treasurer for a statewide water initiative. Under former Environmental Protection Agency Secretary William Ruckelshaus, George served on a national non-point source committee to design programs for the joint involvement of the EPA and the USDA. George also served on the National Agricultural Research and Extension Users Advisory Board to develop recommendations on budget and program priorities for research, higher education and extension in the food and agricultural sciences.

    George has also served as a member of the National Agricultural Advisory Board, a past President of the Pennsylvania Association of Conservation District Directors, a member of the State Conservation Commission, a member of the Lebanon County Conservation District, a member of the Board of Directors for the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, and Chairman of the Jackson Township Zoning Hearing Board.

    In July of 2005 George received the Distinguished Service Award from the State Conservation Commission and in September 2005 received the Fran Flanigan award from the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay. He has received numerous other awards including the Jefferson Award for Outstanding Public Service Benefiting Local Communities, the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine’s Centennial Award of Merit for Outstanding Contributions to the Advancement of Veterinary Medicine, the Izaak Walton League of America Chesapeake Bay Conservation Award, and several other conservation service awards.
