DeLissio said that if people are unable to attend virtually or in person, the video of the town hall will be available on DeLissio’s Facebook page and website.

“This will be my 28th town hall offered virtually since the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, and it has proven to be an excellent way to continue to converse and share information with my constituents who prefer or are unable to meet in person. Redistricting officially takes place on December 1, 2022, and in the interim we are happy to include those new constituents now. I am excited to meet and greet new faces and see familiar ones – all are welcome,” DeLissio said.

The outcome of the decennial redistricting has changed district boundaries of the 194th. New areas of the district will include Ward 38 divisions 11 and 18 in East Falls and Ward 9 divisions 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 16 and 17 of Chestnut Hill.
