WSSD Town Hall Meeting

A message from Dr. Palmer, Superintendent of WSSD…

My recent e-blast on the proposed property tax elimination legislation has certainly created a buzz around our community, so much so that a town hall meeting with our legislators has been suggested.  To that end, I have been in contact with Representative Kruger-Braneky and Senators Killion and McGarrigle.  I am happy to report that all are agreeable to attending a town hall meeting on the important topic of education.

You are invited to attend this town hall meeting with our legislators on Friday, March 24th, 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM, in the Strath Haven High School auditorium.  Parking will be provided in the Middle School (lower lot) as well as the High School (limited number of spots).  Please consider carpooling to the event so we can accommodate a large number of individuals.
