THURSDAY: State Budget Town Hall with State Rep. Ed Gainey

PITTSBURGH, PA – The public is invited to join state Rep. Ed Gainey this evening for a town hall meeting to discuss the proposed 2015-16 state budget.

Following years of Governor Corbett budgets that prioritized corporate tax breaks over our communities, it’s time to get our state back on track. The budget proposed by Governor Wolf will reinvest in our schools, reform our property taxes and start making corporations pay their fair share.

“This public event will include a presentation about Governor Tom Wolf’s proposed state spending plan, followed by an audience question-and-answer period. It’s a great opportunity for people to provide input on how they think their state tax dollars should be spent,” said Gainey, D-Allegheny.
