WAYNESBORO – In his ongoing effort to gain a better understanding of where constituents in the 90th Legislative District stand on a variety of issues, Rep. Paul Schemel (R-Franklin) is once again hosting a series of town hall meetings at various locations in the area during 2017.

The topic of the first town hall meeting is the public pension crisis and the possible solutions currently being debated in the General Assembly. The event is scheduled to take place on Thursday, March 16, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at the Hamilton Township Municipal Building, 1270 Crottlestown Road in Chambersburg.

“We have hosted a number of town hall meetings during the last two year, which were well received,” said Schemel. “These public gatherings are an effective way to engage in an open dialogue with the people who have sent me to the General Assembly to represent them. I encourage their participation in these upcoming events and look forward to the discussion.”
