Many Thanks for Successful Open House and Ribbon Cutting
I want to thank everyone, especially our main man Ben (pictured with me above), and the nearly 80 local residents, friends, neighbors and family members for stopping by our Bentleyville district office open house and ribbon cutting this past Tuesday evening.

My objective from day one as your state representative has been to hit the ground running. As a first-term lawmaker, hosting this legislative open house was a great way for me to meet and get acquainted with even more of the citizens I serve.

Our regular district office hours are Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Just some of our available services include:
  • Assistance with PennDOT paperwork (lost cards, changes, corrections, special registration plates, vanity plates and temporary placards for persons with physical disabilities).
  • Information and applications for senior citizen benefit programs, including Property Tax/Rent Rebate and PACE/PACENET prescription drug programs.
  • Help with securing birth and death certificates (photo identification required).
  • Information about legislation.
  • Assistance with resolving matters relating to state agencies.

The people of the 49th District should know that my staff and I are here to do everything we possibly can to meet and exceed your expectations both at home and in Harrisburg.

Program Offers Assistance with Septic Systems 
The Pennsylvania Infrastructure Investment Authority (PENNVEST), together with the Department of Environmental Protection and the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency, offers a program with low-interest loans to homeowners to cover the costs associated with repairing or replacing on-lot septic systems.
