Olney Town Hall Meeting
Join me this Wednesday, May 2, at 6 p.m. at the Free Library of Philadelphia, Greater Olney Branch, 5501 N. 5th St., for a Town Hall Meeting! I’ll be providing updates on my work in Harrisburg and throughout the 179th District, and sharing some of my plans for the rest of the year. I and my staff will be glad to answer any state-related questions you may have as well.
Philadelphia Safe Return Event This Week
Do you have an outstanding warrant, or do you know anyone who does? The Philadelphia Criminal Courts and Probation Department is working to organize a three-day event for adults with bench warrants and warrants issued for both state and Philadelphia parole and probation violations. Those with warrants may voluntarily turn themselves in at a safe environment, where they can receive favorable consideration. Attendees will receive an expedited hearing process and are likely to return home the same day.
This event will be held at Enon Tabernacle Church, 2800 W. Cheltenham Ave., from Tuesday, May 1 to Thursday, May 3, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. Attendees are asked not to bring children. Lawyers will be on site to speak with you to determine if this is the right process for you.
Policy Hearing on Gun Violence and Domestic Abuse
Last week, I hosted a public hearing of the House Democratic Policy Committee on gun violence and domestic abuse issues. We held the hearing at the Northeast Baptist Church in Frankford.
