Should a Tax Have the Power to Leave You Homeless?
Lehigh Valley Neighbor: Have you heard about the Fill-A-Bus-Tour? The goal of the "Fillabustour" is to fill at least one bus from each of our 66 counties taking 3,630 demonstrators to Harrisburg.  Those who are able will deliver to the offices of the different legislators signed petitions from people back home who want passage of the Property Tax Independence Act.  This is a crucial demonstration of a united effort now before election day.  Why?  The enemy is running Erik Saar against State Rep. Jim Cox who has been our champion of this bill. Saar is endorsed and heavily financed by the PSEA, SEIU, and the Assoc. of PA College & University Faculties.  As of the end of the last reporting period he had raised more than twice the amount of campaign donations as Rep.Jim Cox. It comes as no surprise Saar is basing a great deal of his campaign on his opposition to HB 1776, Property Tax Independence Act.
If we don’t do it who will?
This Pennsylvanian grassroots effort supporting HB 1776 Property Tax Independence Act will be Tues. Sept. 25th., the legislature's first day back from vacation. Don’t be shy, come along with us to greet them.  We have petitions to deliver and thank yous to our supporters. I've got a bus reserved for Lehigh county (Lehigh Valley) for details: <> or phone 610-866-0513 ask for Karen, or if you prefer  $25 (includes a sack lunch and water) is due Aug 20th to confirm the bus.  Mail a check payable to Karen Toman, PO Box 4076 Bethlehem, PA 18018.  We depart 8AM, from Lowe's on 8th Ave (down from Martin Tower, near Nitschmann school). Bethlehem and leave Harrisburg 2:00PM.  
If not now WHEN ?
