DeLissio to hold 57th town hall Sept. 30; ballot questions to be discussed

PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 16 State Rep. Pamela A. DeLissio, D-Montgomery/Phila., will hold her 57th Town Hall meeting at 10 a.m. Friday, Sept. 30 in the Wolcoff Auditorium, Roxborough Memorial Hospital, 5800 Ridge Ave.

The discussion will center on two of the questions that will appear on the Nov. 8 ballot this fall.

Slated for the ballot is a proposed amendment to the state constitution that if voted affirmatively will increase the age of mandatory retirement for judges from 70 to 75. The other question asks citizens if they believe that the size of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives should be reduced.

“These are two very important issues facing Pennsylvania this fall, and their effects will be far-reaching,” DeLissio said. “Please join me as we have an objective discussion of those effects and possible outcomes.”

To amend the state constitution, legislation must pass the House and Senate in two successive sessions. Appropriate notice is then provided to citizens, and the amendment will appear on the ballot for citizens to ultimately decide.
