Open format invites all to participate

PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 14 – State Rep. Pamela A. DeLissio, D-Montgomery/Phila., will hold a town hall meeting to discuss with constituents the proposed basic education funding formula and the Pennsylvania budget impasse.


The meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 27 at Bala Cynwyd Library, 131 Old Lancaster Road. Free parking is available in the library parking lot or on the street.


“The Basic Education Funding Commission report was released June 18 and recommends that a new formula be adopted for distributing state funding for basic education to Pennsylvania’s 500 school districts,” DeLissio said.


“In regard to the state budget impasse, legislators have been called to session on August 25. Accordingly, at this August 27 town hall, I look forward to sharing with my constituents an update on where the budget stands.”


In an attempt to reach as many folks as possible, DeLissio rotates her locations for town hall meetings. 


“My district office is epicenter to the district, and holding my town halls in various places around the district allows me to come to residents, showcasing different venues in the district,” DeLissio said. “Constituents from all parts of the legislative district are welcome at each and every town hall, no matter in which neighborhood they reside.”
