Valley Watchdogs

WatchdogThings are really messed up at the federal level.  However, have you been to your local school board or county council meeting lately?  Believe it or not, things are as bad, if not worse, there!  Though there's plenty to concentrate on at the federal level, true change in Washington will only come after many years of intense action at the local, grass-roots level.  It is at the local level, where you bump into a member of your school board or a county commissioner at the grocery store, that you can have the most immediate and biggest impact.

Former Speaker of the House Tip O'Niell summed it up best when he said, "All politics is local."  In our group, we like to say if you can't change City Hall, you'll never change Capitol Hill!

The goal of Lehigh Valley Watchdog Program is to have at least one group member in each voting precinct in both Lehigh and Northampton Counties.  We are well on our way on achieving this goal and currently have over 300 watchdogs who are forming numerous local citizens groups who take turns attending their local school board, township/city council, and/or county council meetings to both represent the taxpayer and to be vigilent to any actions that these governmental bodies take that violate our Limited Government Resolution.  In this way, we are able to alert the general public through emails, word-of-mouth, or flyer distribution, as early as possible so immediate action can be taken.  Once you read about a tax increase in the paper, it's too late.  That increase has been talked about for months at the meetings.

If you're not sure who your Pennsylvania state legislator is you can find out HERE.

Below you'll find links to their websites in the left hand column. Many of the legislators have more than one local office, the one that is listed here is the one that appears to be the main office or more centrally located in the valley. Most offices have normal business hours of 9:00AM to 4:30PM or thereabouts. Check the website or call if you need to be sure.

I will try to announce when a legislator is having a town hall or similar event but I can't guarantee that I will catch them all. A call to the legislators office to ask will be your best bet!
