– Sen. Judy Ward (R-Blair/Cumberland/Franklin/Fulton/Huntingdon) and Rep. Paul Schemel (R-Franklin) will provide an update about the state legislature and Pennsylvania’s COVID-19 response Tuesday, Aug. 25, during a town hall meeting in which attendees are encouraged to maintain distance from one another.
The town hall is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. in the main pavilion at Antrim Township Park on Grant Shook Road south of Greencastle.
“2020 has been a challenging year for all Americans, and we’ve been busy in Harrisburg trying to work with the executive branch on its coronavirus response and also rein in the gubernatorial overreach,” Ward said. “I look forward to a dialogue that revolves around the comments, ideas and suggestions offered by fellow Pennsylvanians who are eager for our state to advance beyond the many challenges that we have faced over the past several months.”
“The past several months have been challenging for all of us as we grapple with striking the right balance between keeping people safe and keeping our schools, economy and lives moving. I look forward to listening to your thoughts, ideas and concerns,” Schemel said.
A sound system will be used to facilitate seating in line with social-distancing guidelines. The lawmakers will answer questions from attendees. There is limited seating at picnic tables under the pavilion, attendees may want to bring their own chairs.
