PA Club for Growth to Welcome PA Legislators

From a PACFG press release:

When the General Assembly reconvenes Sept. 26, legislators will be welcomed back to the Capitol by taxpayers demanding fiscal responsibility and a repeal of the pay-raise during the "Rock the Capital" on the Capitol steps.

The "Rock the Capital" rally scheduled for Monday, September 26, 2005, from 1:30 to 3:00 pm is being sponsored by ten broad-based organizations, including the Pennsylvania Club for Growth. Several guest speakers, music and a visual feast of political props will be featured before citizens enter the Capitol to meet and greet their representatives.

Bob Durgin from WHP Radio in Harrisburg will broadcast live from the Capitol Steps from 3:00 to 6:00 pm. Durgin will display and deliver petitions with more than 100,000 signatures opposing the pay raise during his live broadcast.

The Pennsylvania Club for Growth, which has been an outspoken critic of the pay-raise and wild spending habits of state legislators, will be on hand to fuel the fire. All taxpayers from across the Commonwealth are encouraged to attend the rally and let their legislators know how they feel about the pay-raise and higher taxes.

Later in the evening, the Pennsylvania Club for Growth, will be hosting a $150-per-person fundraiser featuring National Club for Growth chairman Pat Toomey. The event, which begins at 5:30 p.m., will be held a block away at the Harrisburg Hilton and Towers. Money raised from the event will be spent in the effort to replace wastrel, self-serving legislators with ones who will fight for low taxes and smaller government.

For more information about either event, contact Kathryn English at (717) 541-5000,

That is spread the word!
