HARRISBURG, May 10 – State Rep. Pamela A. DeLissio, D-Montgomery/Phila., announced a recently awarded 2018-19 Senior Community Center Grant that will benefit The Center at Journey’s Way. The Roxborough-based senior center will receive a grant of $48,600, funded through the Pennsylvania Department of Aging’s $2 million in statewide funding earmarked for senior centers, as announced by Gov. Tom Wolf this week. The source of the $2 million is the Pennsylvania Lottery. “These grants will help refurbish senior centers and create new programs and services, and it’s great news for the folks at Journey’s Way,” DeLissio said. “Our older citizens deserve the best, and that includes top-notch facilities and programs at our senior centers. I thank the efforts of the Department of Aging, the Pennsylvania Lottery and Gov. Wolf in awarding this funding.” The Center at Journey’s Way is part of Intercommunity Action, which provides aging, intellectual and developmental disability, and behavior health services. At Journey’s Way, one can participate in a full range of activities and programs to receive valuable information, find challenging volunteer positions, and access services designed for older adults. “With experiences such as reuniting with an old friend, forming new relationships, learning new things, or taking a trip, Journey’s Way supports seniors to live life to the fullest,” DeLissio said.

DeLissio announces relaunch of the Government Reform Caucus at rally

(Apr 26, 2019)

HARRISBURG, April 26 – Last week, state Rep. Pam DeLissio (D-Phila./Montgomery) joined constituents and many other citizens from Fair Districts PA in the Capitol Rotunda in their rally for redistricting reform. “Last session, our collective two-year effort resulted in no legislation regarding this matter making it to the governor’s desk,” DeLissio said. “Instead of giving up, Fair Districts PA has regrouped and, armed with a new strategy, is determined to ensure that an independent citizens’ commission draws the lines for the congressional, state Senate and House redistricting that will occur in 2021. “During my remarks at the rally, I spoke about three of my favorite hashtags: #cluckfuster, #WhenYouHaveToCheatToWin and #FairAndSquare. Our current system for redistricting is a #cluckfuster. It is clear that not all of the General Assembly does not seem to understand that #WhenYouHaveToCheatToWin, the citizens are the real losers. All that citizens really want is a system that is #FairAndSquare. “Since my first town hall meeting in 2011 and at every one of my 83 town hall meetings since, I have mentioned the need for redistricting reform. In 2011, constituents wondered why I was talking about a topic that was not needed until 2021. Yet here we are in 2019 still attempting to get this legislation through the General Assembly. “Our current redistricting system continues to not be fair to the citizens it serves. Read more

Rep. DeLissio: Bridge named to honor history-making American veteran

(Mar 01, 2019)

PHILADELPHIA, March 1 – A bridge along Henry Avenue, passing over Wissahickon Creek and Lincoln Drive in Fairmount Park, Philadelphia, has been designated as the Brigadier General Anna Mae V. McCabe Hays Memorial Bridge, state Rep. Pamela A. DeLissio, D-Montgomery/Philadelphia, announced this week. DeLissio was asked by state Department of Transportation Secretary Leslie Richards if she would introduce legislation to honor Hays, who was a Pennsylvania resident from childhood, dedicated U.S. Army veteran, and the first woman to achieve the rank of brigadier general as a nurse. “General Hays led groundbreaking reforms in personnel policies, including the elimination of automatic discharges for married officers who became pregnant and to ensure that appointments to the Army Nurse Corps Reserve were not based on the age of the nurse's dependents,” DeLissio said. “It is fitting that we now recognize the contributions of this remarkable woman.” Hays, who died last year at age 97, was inspired to join the Army Nurse Corps after the attack on Pearl Harbor. She was deployed to India, where she cared for over 49,000 patients. After World War II, she also served in the Korean War, graduated from Columbia University’s Teacher’s College and Catholic University of America, and guided Army nurses through the Vietnam War in her role as the 13 th chief of the Army Nurse Corps. The latter resulted in her promotion to the rank of Read more
