PHOTO INDEX: STATE REPRESENTATIVES KEVIN MURPHY AND EDDIE DAY PASHINSKI.
This past weekend at least two representatives in the LuLac delegation to the State Legislature came out to meet the public and address the budget impasse. Kevin Murphy held a gathering outside his district office in Scranton yesterday again reiterating his pledge not to take his paycheck until the budget process is completed. Murphy represents the 113th district and serves on the Aging & Older Adult Services, Children & Youth, Game & Fisheries and Labor Relations commitees. Eddie Day Pashinski spoke to a group at the Courthouse on Friday and said the State Legislators should all be sequestered until a budget is passed. Pashinski represents the 121rst District and serves on the Aging & Older Adult Services, Gaming Oversight, Health & Human Services Subcommittee on Drugs and Alcohol as its Chairman and the Insurance panels. To my knowledge, these are the only two representatives in our area that have ventured out in public at an organized meeting to talk about the budget crisis which is now approaching its 55th day.
