Town Meeting Held

A state lawmaker with constituents in Towamencin Township as well as several other Montgomery County communities has held a town meeting.   The public forum hosted by 70th District Representative Matt Bradford focused on the budget stalemate in Harrisburg.   He says the next ten days will be critical in determining the outcome since 70,000 state workers face a payless payday if negotiations don’t make progress soon.   Bradford also points out that more than a third of the funding in the last state budget was earmarked for public education but says underfunding the schools would only shift more of the tax burden onto homeowners.
