KENNETT SQUARE, PA — Representative Chrissy Houlahan (D-PA) is set to host a town hall meeting at the Kennett Library on Monday, February 12, at 6 p.m. This will be Houlahan’s 83rd town hall since she first took office, and it promises to be an engaging discussion focused on federal resources that support families and children.
Houlahan, known for her commitment to family issues, plans to give a legislative update on her work, followed by a Q&A session moderated by the Kennett Library Executive Director, Chris Manna.
“Since joining Congress, helping children and families has been a top priority of mine, and I’m proud of the progress we’ve made over the past five years,” said Houlahan. She cited expanding paid family leave, caring for mothers and infant nutrition, and ensuring students are equipped with necessary skills for success in our economy as key areas she’s championed for the community in Chester and Berks Counties.
This town hall comes in the wake of the House of Representatives passing the Tax Relief for American Families and Workers Act, a bipartisan tax package that Houlahan supported. The bill aims to expand the Child Tax Credit to 26,000 children in Chester and Berks Counties.
The event is open to the public, but seating is limited. Community members interested in attending are encouraged to RSVP to receive updates and help Houlahan’s office plan for the event. Parking is available in nearby lots at the Kennett Library, located at 320 E. State St., Kennett Square, PA 19348.
This town hall offers a unique opportunity for local residents to engage with their representative and gain insights into the legislative workings that directly affect them.
