HARRISBURG – State Senator Doug Mastriano (R-33) is planning a telephone town hall on Thursday, Dec. 5th to gather feedback from residents of the 33rd Senate District.
The hour-long event begins at 6 p.m., and the format encourages local citizens to ask questions, or simply remain on the line and listen to the conversation.
Mastriano’s first telephone town hall in September featured more than 20 callers, included three interactive polls and was streamed live on Facebook.
“My first event was a huge success and I am eager for that enthusiasm to carry over,” said Mastriano. “It is critical for lawmakers to have an open dialogue with residents on a consistent basis, to effectively gauge the issues that are important to them. I am looking forward to another opportunity to discuss statewide and district-specific matters with residents.”
Questions and topics from Mastriano’s first telephone town hall included property tax reform, the 2nd Amendment, the state’s opioid crisis, robo-calls, veterans’ issues and the inheritance tax.
After receiving a significant number of inquiries about property tax reform, Mastriano has invited Senator David Argall (R-29) to participate in the opening segment of the program. Argall is sponsoring legislation (SB76) that would eliminate school property taxes.
Residents of the 33rd Senate District – which includes Adams County, and portions of Franklin, York and Cumberland counties – can register for the telephone town hall at https://senatormastriano.com/tele-town-hall/.
The event will also be streamed on Facebook Live.
