EAST MARLBOROUGH: Civil civic discourse

Along with about two dozen other constituents, I attended a town hall meeting held by State Rep. Eric Roe (R-158) at the East Marlborough Township Building on Jan. 25. It was the first time I'd met him, and I was impressed with how articulate he was and his ability to lay out the arguments for both sides of an issue and then thoughtfully explain his position, whether it was the Commonwealth's State Store system, school district funding, state support for the New Bolton Center, the size of the House of Representatives, funding for the Pennsylvania State Police, the turnpike commission, gerrymandering, marijuana legalization, the state budget process, or pension reform for state employees.
It was, as you can tell, a wide-ranging discussion!
Rep. Roe also shared some happy personal news: he and his wife, Alice, bought a house in Marshallton and are expecting their first children -- twin boys -- in April.
