Rep. DeLissio announces July town hall meeting schedule

Rep. Pamela DeLissio of Pennsylvania’s 194th Legislative District will hold three town hall meetings in the area this month. 

In a statement released on Tuesday, DeLissio explains why the upcoming series of meetings is called “How Politics Sabotages Public Policy.” 

“Policies that were of importance to Pennsylvanians were not advanced this budget season,” DeLissio said. “Major initiatives such as basic education, transportation funding and Medicaid expansion fell victim to majority-party infighting and disagreement about priorities with the governor. The back story will be told about how these casualties occurred and more importantly how we move forward in a way that truly benefits our citizens.”

The first meeting will be held at 7 p.m. on July 25 in the Wolcoff Auditorium at the Roxborough Memorial Hospital. The second is scheduled for 10 a.m. on July 29 in Founders Hall at Inglis House on Belmont Avenue and the third is set for 7 p.m. on July 30 in the Teletorium in Mandeville Hall on St. Joseph’s University’s campus.
