LANCASTER, PA – Senator Lloyd Smucker has held regular town hall meetings throughout his district during his more than five years in the state Senate.  Now he will host a “Community Expo” in the city of Lancaster on Thursday evening.

“This is a chance for me to find out what people in city neighborhoods have on their minds, to answer questions about issues of concern, and to connect people with services they might not know about.  Community outreach is one of the most important aspects of my job, and one of the most enjoyable,” Smucker said.

“Our Senate district has small communities, suburban areas, and the city with its diverse neighborhoods.  The views, challenges, and priorities are not the same in each place, of course.  But I do find there is common interest in good jobs, better schools, stronger families, and safer communities.  It is always good to remind people that their views matter,” he stated.

“We have gotten a great response from the non-profit groups who were invited to participate.  The professionals and volunteers who run these groups provide an important bridge between government and the community.  We depend heavily on them, and should recognize and express gratitude for their contributions,” Smucker stated.

The expo, which was put together with support from the Bagnall Shaw Co., will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. at Tellus360, 24 E. King St., Lancaster.  Locally prepared refreshments will be served.

To RSVP for the expo, please call 717-397-1309 or email Jennifer Andrus at Adults only, please. The event is free and open to the public.
