Activists to Lobby District Offices in Support of Lower Taxes and Spending

Harrisburg, PA – Next week, local activists from Americans for Prosperity-Pennsylvania will visit the offices of Representatives Charlie Dent, Pat Meehan, Todd Platts, and Bill Shuster to urge them to vote against tax hikes and for spending reductions in the lame duck session. Activists plan to visit the local district offices of the legislators in Allentown, Hollidaysburg, Springfield, and York.

“Our Pennsylvania activists have a simple message for Representatives
Dent, Meehan, Platts and Shuster: cut spending, don’t raise taxes,” said
Jennifer Stefano, AFP-PA’s state director. “Our office visits are just one more
way we are leveraging our strongest resource – our grassroots army – to push
back against any tax hikes and support spending reductions.”

One reason lame duck sessions are so popular among legislators is because
they think constituents are not watching how they vote. There are over 2.1
million AFP activists in all 50 states, with over 120,000 in Pennsylvania alone, and they are committed to responsible government. They will be watching to see how
Congress acts during the lame duck session. Below is the schedule of
Congressional office visit locations and times.

Tuesday, December 11th 
9 a.m. Springfield Congressman Pat Meehan
To attend contact Matthew Hissey at MHissey@afphq.org

Wednesday, December 12th
11 a.m. Allentown, PA Congressman Charlie Dent
To attend contact Randy DeSoto at RDesoto@afphq.org
