College & Career Fair April 25

On April 25 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., I am hosting a College & Career Fair at Nazareth Area High School (501 E. Center Street, Nazareth).

This event is specifically geared toward high school students looking to further their education at college or in the skilled trades.

We have 46 exhibitors registered so far and representatives from many PA-based colleges and technical schools who will be in attendance. Please reference the flyer for more information.

The Fair includes a special Financial Aid Review session at 6 p.m. for parents and students to learn the ins and outs of paying for higher education. For a list of exhibitors and to register, please visit

National Crime Victims Week

During Crime Victims Week, we recognize that Pennsylvania has come a long way in defending the rights and dignity of crime victims, while acknowledging that more work lies ahead.

You can find crime victim resources, including how to file compensation claims and local victim service programs, here.

Great American Cleanup is Underway

The Great American Cleanup is underway across Pennsylvania through May 31.

If your cleanup group registers to pick up trash between April 13 and May 6, you’ll have access to reduced or free trash disposal. Last year, nearly 130,000 volunteers removed more than 7.2 million pounds of trash from PA roads, shorelines and trails.

What to Know about Flooding

Flooding is the most common natural disaster in Pennsylvania. If you live near a river or stream, it’s important to know the terms.

For example, a flood ‘watch’ means that flooding may occur. Residents should stay alert, closely monitor rivers and streams, and be prepared to move to high ground quickly. A flood ‘warning’ means that there is actual flooding. Residents should act at once and move to high ground.

You can learn more about flooding, and how to reduce your risk, here.

How to Access Nearly All PennDOT Forms, Publications & Maps 

Applications for disability placards, commercial learner’s permits and more can be accessed via a searchable list of nearly all of PennDOT forms, publications and maps.

From “Accident Reports” to “Window Tint Fact Sheet” and topics in between. You can filter results by “Document Type” and “Topic.”

Around the 40th District

It’s always exciting to celebrate our local businesses as they grow and prosper. Stoves ‘n Stuff, Ltd. recently celebrated the grand opening of their new location at 914 North 9th Street in Stroudsburg. A simple walk through their store quickly shows their commitment to quality products and service. We wish you much success!

This past weekend we recognized two young men for earning the rank of Eagle Scout – Heath Gagner of Troop 74 in Bushkill Township and Roger Perkowski III of Troop 85 in Tannersville. Thank you both for demonstrating the highest ethic of service to our communities.

For his Eagle project, Heath designed and built a fire pit and stage area for Schoeneck Moravian Church, including rock flooring, a stacked rock wall and crucifix. Roger added raised garden beds, soil and plants to the Major Paul Syverson Veterans Sanctuary in Jonas.

Well done, gentlemen!

It was humbling to join many of our veterans, active service members and families at Courthouse Square in Stroudsburg today to commemorate National Vietnam War Veterans Day. Thank you to all who served for we owe you a debt of gratitude. “Welcome home.”
