Rep. Paul Takac invites residents to ‘Town Hall’-type events next week

STATE COLLEGE, Nov. 30 – State Rep. Paul Takac, D-Centre, will host two events next week geared toward listening to varying perspectives on issues important to residents of the 82nd Legislative District.

The first event is a Tele Town Hall scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday. Those wishing to attend the Tele Town Hall can call ahead to Takac’s district office at 814-308-0569 to provide the best number to be connected to the event next Tuesday evening. A recording will also be posted and available online upon conclusion of the event.

For those unable to attend the Tele Town Hall, or for residents who prefer face-to-face conversations, Takac will also host a Coffee and Conversation event from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 7 at Good Day Café located at 286 W. Hamilton Ave. in State College. An RSVP link is available here:

“Next week’s events underscore the critical importance of elected officials making themselves available and being accountable to their constituents,” Takac said. “Open and honest dialogue is absolutely vital for a healthy democracy and for strengthening our local communities.

“Listening to the questions, concerns, and ideas of constituents provides me not only feedback but an opportunity to consider and explore possible legislative or community-based solutions to the challenges we all face, both now and in the future. I strongly encourage residents to attend if possible – even if they do not have any specific concerns or questions in mind.”
