Rep. Scott Perry to Hold Town Meeting
YORK, PA – To offer his constituents the opportunity to share their concerns regarding issues before the United States Congress and the federal government, U.S. Representative Scott Perry (PA-4) will host a town meeting next week. The meeting will be held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, August 7 at the Hamilton Health Center, 110 South 17th Street, Harrisburg. Congressman Perry hosted two similar events in late July.
Constituents will be updated by their Congressman on the issues currently facing Congress, including the federal budget, job creation, immigration and health care. Afterwards, Congressman Perry will welcome questions on these and other federal issues. “For me to effectively represent our constituents in Congress, I regularly need – and seek - their feedback on the issues facing our country,” Perry said.
This town meeting continues Congressman Perry’s efforts to actively solicit constituent feedback. Since taking office in January, he has met with hundreds of constituents via individual meetings and site visits, conducted several in-person town and tele-town meetings, and aggressively utilized social media to interact with the citizens he serves. Nearly 10,000 constituents have signed up for regular updates via Congressman Perry’s e-newsletter, Facebook or Twitter pages. Social media venues such as these allow him to solicit feedback and provide information on the issues before Congress, while also saving hard-earned taxpayer resources.
Residents who are unable to attend such meetings in person are welcome to contact Congressman Perry and his staff at any of his offices, or via Perry.House.Gov, where they can sign up for e-mail updates and for his new Facebook, Twitter and You Tube pages.
