PA Representative Meeting

Kristin Phillips-Hill to Host Discussion of Energy Infrastructure Issues

Residents of the 93rd District who have concerns about proposed energy infrastructure projects are invited to meet with Tanya J. McCloskey, Pennsylvania’s acting consumer advocate, as part of a public information meeting hosted by state Rep. Kristin Phillips-Hill (R-York Township). The event will be held Thursday, Nov. 2, at 6 p.m. in the Kennard-Dale High School auditorium, 393 Main St., Fawn Grove.

“As a state representative, I am pleased that my office can act as a conduit of information for constituents concerned about this project,” Phillips-Hill said. “This is an opportunity for affected parties to interact with the applicable state agency to express their concerns, ask questions and gather information.”

Transource Energy’s plan to construct overhead power lines through southcentral Pennsylvania has drawn a lot of criticism from local residents. Phillips-Hill’s goal for this meeting is to provide a forum for civil discussion on where the project stands, the role played in it by the Public Utility Commission and how the public can make their opinions known.

“I appreciate Tanya McCloskey making herself available to the consumer, for whom she essentially serves as a spokesperson,” added Phillips-Hill. “Citizens often feel they either have no voice in important issues and it is her job to represent Pennsylvania utility consumers’ interests.”

Questions about this or any legislative issue may be directed to Phillips-Hill’s district office at (717) 428-9889 or 1-877-207-2272.
