Democracy HOME Style
Project HOME’s Advocacy Committee hosted a meet-and-greet session with the candidates for the Pennsylvania House of Representatives in the 195th District on Tuesday, July 28. This Tuesday, August 11, there is a special election in the 195th District to fill the vacant seat in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. (Former Rep. Brownlee stepped down.) The 195th District includes six Project HOME sites (1515/1523 Fairmount, JBJ Soul Homes, Hope Haven 1&2, Rowan Homes, St. Elizabeth’s Recovery Residence, and the Honickman Learning Center/Comcast Technology Labs).
Our community was able to ask the candidates where they stand on affordable housing, jobs, medical care, and education. The candidates were able to get to know our community and our concerns better. See below videos of our residents, Reggie Young and Kenny Mosley, asking questions of the candidates.
