In this Update:
Ringing in 2019
As we turn the last page on the 2018 calendar, I’d like to wish you and your loved ones much joy and prosperity in the year ahead. It has been an honor representing you in the General Assembly the last several years, and I look forward serving our region and the interests of its people in 2019.
Monroe County District Office Relocation
My Monroe County District Office has officially relocated to the second floor of the Wise Building on Route 611 in Scotrun (2398 Route 611, Suite 201, Scotrun, PA). It is my pleasure to continue assisting constituents throughout the area and we are excited to serve our residents out of this new location just off Interstate 80.
To get to the office via I-80 West, take the Scotrun Exit and turn left on SR 611 N. Travel 0.8 miles and the office is located on the left (next to the Corona Butcher).
Since turns for northbound traffic are currently restricted for the Route 611 construction project, residents can also access the new office through the Scotrun Avenue entrance. Scotrun Avenue runs parallel to 611.
As always, please do not hesitate to give a call for assistance with any state-related issues – 570-620-4326. (All telephone numbers remain the same.)

Around the 40th District
It’s not often that I get the pleasure to meet an outstanding young man from my district who goes above and beyond for his community. William Mirams presented a check to Lehigh Valley Hospital Pocono for $25,250 of prize fund dollars that he won through his golfing expertise. To date he has earned over $40,000 dollars which he presented to the hospital for Medical Research. Congratulations to this young man!
It was a pleasure to visit with Erma Unger on the occasion of her 100th birthday. We wish you many more years of happiness and good health!
It was my pleasure to join PA State Rep. Marcia Hahn in honoring Debbie Seiple for her many years of committed service as manager for East Allen Township. Thank you for your tireless work on behalf of our community. We wish you all the best in your next adventures!
