Delissio Annual Town Hall Meeting
600 E Cathedral Rd
Philadelphia, PA 19128
Town Hall Meeting will my 80th, and it will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday Jan. 26th at:
600 E. Cathedral Road
Please join me for a “Pam Unplugged” gathering that promises to be energizing and enlightening, and possibly even amusing, and as always, with the ultimate goal of producing a more informed citizenry.
One of my stated goals for town halls is to inform constituents about how the legislative process works. The more citizens understand about the process, the better they can participate and advocate.
As discussed at last month’s town hall there was much unfinished business in Harrisburg at the end of the 2017-2018 session; unfinished business such as voting improvements like early voting and no-excuse absentee ballots, campaign finance reform, or efforts to end the manipulation of the redrawing of state and congressional district lines- AKA gerrymandering.
As a result of this unfinished business, a few current and past legislators are trying to make a difference by ensuring that the PA House Rules provide a fair and square opportunity for these types of legislation to reach the Governor’s desk. The manner in which the House Rules are currently drafted and manipulated have contributed heavily to poor legislative outcomes.
I look forward to sharing with you my involvement over the past few weeks to change the House Rules (which are the real reason for the unfinished business), and how the ‘cards’ end up consistently stacked not in favor of citizens, but instead favor special interest groups with significant financial influence.
This town hall will be an opportunity for you to hear how state government works in reality, instead of in theory.
Our goal needs to be a fair and square government in 2019-2020.
