Mr. Giannini is a 1995 graduate of Warren Area High School and a 2000 graduate of Penn State University with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering. Since graduating, Mr. Giannini has spent his career working in the technology industry, first as a Senior Systems Engineer for Current Technologies in Germantown, Maryland, a smart grid and broadband provider. In 2009 he became an IT Specialist with the Warren County School District and in 2012 became Senior Systems Engineer for Pennsylvania General Energy, where he is currently employed.
Aside from the technological experience, Mr. Giannini intends to bring to the Commissioners Office, he also offers a great history of community service. He has volunteered for years as a board member of the Habitat for Humanity of Warren County, where he currently serves as Vice President. On Friday nights in the fall you can find him working as a PIAA Official for District 10 football games.
Mr. Giannini stated: “With Federal and State governments pushing more and more of the burden on local governments it is important to me that the Warren County has new ideas and solutions to our problems so we prosper as a community in years to come.” He is committed to working to bring his technology background and experience in public service to the Commissioners Office to help move the County Government into the future with forward-thinking solutions. Those include:
- Pushing for Greater Broadband in Warren County. Our community has some of the lowest broadband connectivity in the state. Mr. Giannini intends to address that by using his extensive tech background to spearhead creative and bold initiatives in conjunction with the State and Federal Governments.
- Strong support for local businesses and plans to work with business leaders, consumers and other Public Officials to recruit new business as well as grow the businesses we already have.
- Supports the Residential Tax Relief program that allows citizens to be exempt from new taxes when they remodel or build a new structure on their property. This is a great incentive to spark growth within the community.
- Work with County and Local Officials and other thought leaders to promote the County Marketing Initiatives and tourism strategies.
- Assist local law enforcement and emergency responders to make sure they have the technical knowledge, expertise, and resources to protect our residents in this digital age.
