POTTSTOWN PA – Here’s a question that’s been wailed by plenty of property owners across Greater Pottstown for years: “Why my taxes are so high and what can I do about it?”
Tonight (Tuesday, May 30, 2017) at 7 p.m. in the auditorium of Pottstown High School, 750 N. Washington St., they may actually get an answer.
Although the Pottstown School District is the sponsor, residents of all area school districts are being encouraged by organizers to attend the session that seeks to form an advocacy group intended to lobby Harrisburg for lower local taxation and state funding relief.
Its discussion panelists include politicians, school officials, lawyers, and public interest group specialists. Among them are:
- State Rep. Tom Quigley, whose 146th District includes Lower Pottsgrove, Pottstown, Limerick, Royersford, Trappe, and Perkiomen;
- State Rep. Tim Hennessey, whose 26th District includes Pottstown, and North and East Coventry;
- State Sen. Bob Mensch, whose 147th District includes Pottstown, West and Upper Pottsgrove, Boyertown, Lower Frederick, Perkiomen, Trappe, Skippack and Lower Salford;
- Dan Urevick-Ackelsberg and Michael Churchill, both of the Public Interest Law Center; and
- Shirlee Howe of Public Citizens for Children and Youth.
The event will be open for questions and answers with the public, and light refreshments and entertainment will follow.
