Sattler to leave York

Ryan Sattler, the former Bon-Ton executive who founded York County Community Against Racism and has been a key leader of the effort to establish a county Human Relations Commission, announced in May he will move to Baltimore this summer for family reasons. Sattler said he wants to remain involved in YCCAR and the YorkCounts HRC working group unitl his move is completed, and that could take several months.

Wishing the best to Ryan and his family. Ryan and his Wife are such a joy to be around and will be truly missed in the York community. They both express such positive attributes and a love for life.

Ryan and Joan Sattler have been a wonderful and positive influence in our community since their arrival many years back.
The AFL-CIO Community Services Program has enjoyed working with committed and dedicated "movers and shakers" like them to build a better York County for everyone who lives here.
Baltimore is not too far, so we hope to see them once in awhile back here in York on occasion.

Best wishes

Ryan and Joan,
Happy landings. Thank you for your courage and persistence in making York County a saner, more humane place.
Your absence will leave a gaping hole in York's social fabric.

Best wishes to the Sattlers! York is a much better place because of the Ryan and Joan, and we're so fortunate to have been the recipients of their love and hard work! Please keep in touch!

Without a doubt, the Sattlers have been a tremendous force for progress and compassion in York County. Ryan has been a true hero in many ways. They will be missed and, despite their attempts to plan for "leadership recruitment and development," nobody will fill their shoes. But Baltimore is close enough for visits!
