The cuts to the state budget this year have already had a devastating effect on our families, our services, our county, and our state. Now is the time to tell legislators what we need to succeed in future budgets.

PathWays PA and the Southeastern Pennsylvania Budget Coalition are cosponsoring an event with legislators on Thursday, October 27th at noon to discuss the impact of state budget cuts on local families struggling in this difficult economy.

The discussion will have consequences: legislators are debating a tax on natural gas drilling that could infuse close to half a billion dollars into our schools and services for children, people with disabilities, and families reeling from the recession.

The public event is from 12 -1 on Thursday, October 27th at Media Borough Hall, 301 N. Jackson Street, Media, 19063.  We have invited the DelCo legislative delegation.

As a bonus, we are offering a free communications workshop from 10-11:30 at the same location:
"How to Make the Case for Public Funding in an Era of 'Small Government'"
