PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 7 – State Rep. James Roebuck, D-Phila., invites west Philadelphia residents to three events he will host this fall, starting with his "Report to the People" meeting about the state budget, 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 13 at the Kingsessing Recreation Center, 5100 Chester Ave.  

"I hope you'll bring your neighbors and your questions, too," Roebuck said.

Roebuck also plans additional "Report to the People" meetings at dates and times to be announced. For updates, residents can like Roebuck's legislative Facebook page – www.facebook.com/RepRoebuck -- or follow him on Twitter @RepRoebuck.

Roebuck will also sponsor two other events this fall:

  • A free document-shredding event from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 24, at Roebuck’s district office, 4712 Baltimore Ave. This will help people to protect themselves from identity theft by safely disposing of unneeded documents that contain personal information, such as Social Security numbers, bank or credit card account numbers, credit card applications, canceled or unused checks, insurance and income tax records and pension information.

"Please do not bring digital or electronic media, such as computer discs, CDs or DVDs," Roebuck said.

  • A veterans' event from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 7, at the University of the Sciences, McNeil Science and Technology Center, 4320 Woodland Ave. Representatives of federal, state and local government agencies will be available to answer questions about benefits and other veterans' services.

For more information on any of these events, please call Roebuck's office at 215-724-2227.
