Argall Set to Host Telephone Town Hall with Local Residents Following Governor’s Budget Address

HARRISBURG – Senator David G. Argall (R-Schuylkill/Berks) will be listening to the concerns of local residents and discussing the governor’s latest budget proposal during a telephone town hall event on Tuesday, February 9 from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m.

“The governor is scheduled to deliver his second budget address in which he’s expected to ask the taxpayers for more of their hard-earned money,” Argall said. “Over the last year, the overwhelming consensus from Berks and Schuylkill County residents is to not give in to the governor’s demands for higher taxes. This will give local residents a forum to express their concerns and provide valuable feedback for me in relation to the governor’s budget address.”

Argall encourages local residents to participate by signing up on his website in advance at or by dialing 1-877-229-8493 and using access code 111786 the night of the event.

In addition to fielding questions on state government issues, Argall will also ask participants for feedback during the call on a number of issues, including school property tax reform, pension reform, welfare reform, among others.
