KENNETT SQUARE, PA — State Rep. Christina Sappey, D-Chester, invites residents of the 158th Legislative District to join her virtual Transportation Town Hall at 6 p.m. Thursday, June 1.

Sappey will be joined by PennDOT Secretary Mike Carroll to host a discussion about PennDOT’s operations, policies, programs, and upcoming initiatives affecting state roadways, driver services, urban and rural public transportation, airports, railroads, ports, and waterways. Residents are encouraged to submit questions and share feedback.

“Transportation-related concerns are the top issues residents contact me about. I’m grateful that Secretary Carroll will join me for this event to answer residents’ questions and engage in what will be a wide-ranging discussion,” Sappey said. “This is your opportunity to hear from the very top and to share your thoughts and questions.”

Carroll was confirmed to his position by the state Senate on May 3. Previously, he served as a member of the PA House of Representatives for eight terms beginning in 2006 and was the Democratic Chairman of the House Transportation Committee from 2018 to 2022.

Whether you are a driver or not, the roads and transit services overseen by PennDOT directly impact the way all Pennsylvanians travel to work and school, visit family and friends, acquire food, medical care and all other goods and services, Sappey said.

Residents interested in joining the call should RSVP by contacting Sappey’s office at 484-200-8264, or by emailing repsappey@pahouse.net with “Town Hall” in the subject line. Questions for the discussion can also be sent to repsappey@pahouse.net. Those who RSVP will receive a viewing link on the day of the event.
