DeLissio to discuss stopgap budget, education during 96th Town Hall

PHILADELPHIA, June 12State Rep. Pamela A. DeLissio, D-Montgomery/Phila., will host her 96th Town Hall Meeting via Facebook Live at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 18.

The discussion at this virtual town hall will center on the current happenings in Pennsylvania’s General Assembly. It will include a review of the recently passed budget, focusing on how basic education is being funded.

“Every single one of us has been forced to adjust on the fly as we continue to navigate our everyday lives in the midst of a worldwide pandemic,” DeLissio said. “In the state legislature, that has meant many long days and nights, ongoing debates about the process of reopening our commonwealth, and the recent passing of a stopgap budget to hold us over into the fall.

“But what does all of it mean for Pennsylvanians? What does it mean for constituents of the 194th Legislative District? What does it mean for the immediate future of education? These are among the topics we will dig into on Thursday evening."

This will be DeLissio’s fourth consecutive town hall via Facebook Live since the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak and Gov. Wolf’s stay-at-home orders necessitated different means to communicate and provide information.

“I continue to welcome residents from all parts of the 194th to join us and participate in the discussion,” she said. “This has proven to be a unique but effective way to maintain communication with my constituents.”
