COATSWILE – U.S. Representative Chrissy Hulahan, D-6th of Easttown, announced details of two reciprocal events, a Coatesville Medical Center (VAMC) audition session and City Hall for Economic Development and Infrastructure Investment scheduled for this Monday. , March 28 at 9 and 10 a.m., respectively. The audition session will consider a March 14 report recommending the closure of Coatesville VAMC, and the town hall will focus on supporting small businesses through robust infrastructure, including broadband. Both events will be held at Coatesville City Hall.
“Veterans represent the best of our nation, and they deserve our care as soon as they return home from the war – a horrible reality we see on television around the world right now,” Hulahan said. “When I heard about the proposed closure, I was shocked, to be honest. I have spent countless hours at Coatesville VAMC with veterans and dedicated staff who support them and I will not suffer the loss of affordable and quality care. That’s why I wrote an open letter to Secretary McDonagh, in which he rightly expressed our concern. “
“As the Biden administration is considering this proposed closure, I want to hear from members of our community so that I can in turn share our stories in Washington. This audition session is the first, but certainly not the last, opportunity for concerned citizens to express their voice. “
Hulahan will then move on to sharing the economic benefits of modern infrastructure for local small businesses.
“I’ve spent years developing small and medium-sized businesses and nonprofits here in southeastern Pennsylvania, so I understand the importance of our local economy supporting working families,” Hulahan said. “But our families and businesses cannot succeed without a sound infrastructure. I hope our community will join us at City Hall to discuss how recent infrastructure investments will strengthen the competitiveness and resilience of our small businesses to global markets and domestic pressures such as natural disasters. ”
The first meeting at the City Hall will be held on Monday, March 28 at 9-9: 45, and the second Monday, March 28 at 10-11 p.m. Parking is available near the town hall and adjacent areas. The moderator will be James Logan, Coatesville City Manager.
