Everett to host town hall meetings

State Rep. Garth Everett, R-Muncy, will launch a series of town hall meetings beginning next week.

Area residents will have a chance to talk to the lawmaker at different sites about a variety of issues.

In addition, Everett will offer an update on the state budget, school funding and pension liabilities.

“Town hall meetings offer a great opportunity for residents to learn more about what’s happening in state government, and to ask questions and share concerns about the challenges facing our commonwealth,” Everett said. “I encourage people to come out and be involved in making our communities better places to live, work and raise our families.”

The meetings will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. at the following venues on the scheduled days:

• Monday, White Deer Community Park Building, 992 White Deer Pike, White Deer.

• Wednesday, Picture Rocks Vol. Fire Co., 180 Main St., Picture Rocks.

• Sept. 4, Trout Run Volunteer Fire Co., 241 Route 14, Trout Run.

• Sept. 10, Jersey Shore Independent Hose Co., 130 Pennsylvania Ave., Jersey Shore.
