BY AN overwhelming majority, the state Senate yesterday confirmed Gov. Corbett’s two nominees for the School Reform Commission, City Councilman Bill Green and People’s Emergency Center CEO Farah Jimenez.
Green, who must resign from his Council post, replaces Pedro Ramos as SRC chair after Ramos stepped down last year to deal with family concerns, while Jimenez takes over for Joseph Dworetzky on the five-member board. The two were approved by a 44-2 vote, with Sens. Vincent Hughes and Andrew Dinniman the only nay votes.
