Dear subscriber,

On Thursday January 12th at 7:00PM you will have the opportunity to hear Jordan Yeager in person at the Newtown Friends Meeting. He is the lawyer who challenged PA Act 13 before the PA Supreme Court and restored important rights to local municipalities.  Read the post below to find out more. The presentation will focus on the draft ordinance that is being considered by the Jointure municipalities: Upper Makefield, Wrightstown, and Newtown Township.

The meeting is open to the public.
