TOMORROW: Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program Seminar
On Feb. 4 at 2 p.m., I’ll be hosting a free seminar on the Pennsylvania Property Tax/Rent Rebate Program that will help you understand what documents are needed for the rebate application.
It will be held at the Easttown Library, 720 First Avenue in Berwyn.
The seminar will also provide an opportunity to schedule an appointment with our staff in March to help you fill out and send in your application directly to the Department of Revenue. Assistance is also available throughout the filing period in my District Office.
Please RSVP to Nick Cocco at 610-853-4100 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 2015 Legislative Year in Review
I was honored to have been elected last fall to represent Pennsylvania’s 26th Senatorial District, which includes parts of Chester and Delaware counties.
My staff and I work hard for the middle-class families in our district to serve as their voice in the State Senate and help them cut through the red tape and bureaucracy at state agencies. This year, I’m anxious to continue working with my colleagues to keep our communities safe, improve our education system, and keep a watchful eye on Harrisburg’s spending.
As the second year of the 2015-2016 legislative session gets underway, I wanted to provide you with a 2015: In Review. In addition to an outline of the legislative process and my committee assignments, the Review includes a recap of events throughout the district. These include our Cyberbullying Seminar Series, Kids Expo, Identity Theft Prevention Fair and our Senior Expo.
I hope you take a few minutes to read through this publication, which includes valuable information on what my office can do for you. I’m looking forward to continuing to serve as your State Senator with respect, integrity and community involvement.
