Hanna thanks residents for participating in town hall event

HARRISBURG, March 8 – State Rep. Mike Hanna, D-Clinton/Centre, today said that his town hall meeting held Wednesday night provided residents with an opportunity to get their voices heard.

“Since 1991, I have been honored to represent residents of Clinton and Centre counties,” Hanna said. “Being able to hear from multiple constituents at one time affords me the opportunity to better understand what’s important to them, which is always enlightening.”

Hanna said a small crowd of constituents attended the event at the Milesburg Community Center and over 100 people viewed the live stream through Facebook.

The following topics were discussed throughout the 90-minute event: Gov. Tom Wolf’s 2018-19 budget proposal, property taxes, Marcellus shale, school safety and security, the opioid epidemic, medical marijuana, agricultural issues, municipal concerns, transportation issues, the Game Commission, redistricting, gift bans and residential energy assistance concerns.

“Having a small crowd in attendance tonight was nice,” Hanna said. “It allowed for constituents to feel comfortable, ask multiple questions and fully engage in the conversation. It also provided an opportunity to spend more time digging a little deeper into the issues affecting our everyday lives.”

Hanna said he wants to thank everyone for participating either in person or online and reminds residents that he and his staff are always available to help constituents with state-related issues. If any of the topics discussed last night required additional research, you can expect a written response in the days to follow.
